When George McPherson was pulled through the ranks and pinned as a 21-year-old Sergeant in the U.S. Army over 20 years ago, he learned two things about himself. He could accomplish anything he put his mind to, and he would always pull others up if he was in a position to do so. George prides himself on integrity, an insane work ethic, attention to detail and (his greatest super power) outside-the-box creativity. With 25 years in the technology industry, the first 18 in telecom and the last seven in cybersecurity, George has had the opportunity to work in industries such as the military, telecom, local government, healthcare and electric utility.
