Tony Lusiba

Tony is an Information Technology Leader who began his career in 1995 when Netscape was still the browser of choice. He uses 21 years of well-rounded experience to analytically complete the rapidly changing puzzle of IT. Tony has a creative side too with experience working with Abobe applications like Photoshop and Illustrator. He is highly motivated, extremely efficient, resourceful, flexible, and passionate about his work.

Prior to earning his Masters in Software Systems at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN, Tony held positions at Thomson Reuters and Target Corporation. Before working at Upvant®, Tony was the Director of Information technology at J&J Distributing. He also has a BA in International Studies & Management from Hamline University and recently earned an industry-acknowledged Certificate of Leadership.

In his free time Tony loves spending quality time with his wife, Carol. He’s also an avid squash player who has competed at a national level. He is the 2015 Canadian National Doubles squash champion.

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Tony when he hired RSM US to meet the information technology consulting needs of J&J Distributing. I was particularly impressed by Tony’s strategic planning, professionalism and ability to translate business objectives into successful technology projects. As a team member or a leader, Tony earns my highest recommendation.

I have known Tony for over a decade and is by far one of the most experienced and knowledgeable IT Directors I have ever worked with. He is also highly respected in the industry with vendors, partners, and all my employees. He is also very passionate about providing world class customer service to his end users and supporting business initiatives. Honestly you just don’t see professionals like him in the market very often that could provide contract CIO services.

I worked with Tony on the implementation of a fiber optic circuit to support J&J Distributing’s operations. Not only did he show a high degree of technical competency, but more importantly he understood the strategic value of the service to the business. He was also a pleasure to work with personally. I would highly recommend Tony for positions of IT leadership.
