Chief Executive Officer

My work as CEO at Rhodian is to provide Direction, Focus, Strategy and, most importantly, a good company culture so our associates are able to thrive in their careers by finding successes providing the best technology and cybersecurity services they can for our customers.

I’ve been a senior leader at many technology companies and have experience in sales, marketing, product management, strategy and operations. Throughout my three decades of experience, I have gained an understanding of just how important providing people with outstanding technology solutions is to creating winning enterprises.

My life outside of work is spent with my wife, Dorothy, at our lakefront cottage. We love living on the water, with the opportunity to ski, tube, and take sunset cruises—but the calming scenery is the best part. We also enjoy spending time with our daughter, Claire, who has just embarked on her journey as an elementary school teacher.

My role as President/COO at Rhodian Group involves working with several departments across the organization to attain the goal of providing a world-class experience to our clients, and making a positive impact to the companies we serve. I strive to be thought of as a business partner, as opposed to merely a vendor.

I have held executive level roles in the MSP space for several decades and have experience in systems engineering, architecture, business development, sales, strategy, and operations. Throughout my career, I have focused on building strong relationships and surrounding myself with good people, which has proven to be a winning formula.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Antoinette. We like to travel to places with lots of sun and sand, attend concerts, and walk our 3 Doodles – Emma, Max and Sophie. We also enjoy spending time with our kids – Nadia, JP, Johny and Laney.

Chief Financial Officer

As Chief Financial Officer of Rhodian Group, my goal is to help simplify budgeting for effective IT, Cybersecurity, and Compliance services by providing our clients with a high-quality platform in a cost-efficient manner, with competitive pricing and quality service.

I have over 25 years of experience with helping grow and scale technology-focused companies. I hold an undergraduate in Business Studies with a major in Accounting and Finance from the University of Limerick, Ireland, plus an MBA fro DePaul University, Chicago. I’m also a licensed Certified Public Accountant and a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

Outside of work, I am married and have 3 great kids. I keep busy with volunteer work, such as being on the Executive Board of KIDTOO, a non-profit focused on child protection. I also enjoy mentoring local high school students in entrepreneurship and coaching soccer for young adults with special needs.

VP of Informational Security

As VP of Information Security at Rhodian, I am responsible for the company’s vision for products and services relating to cybersecurity and compliance.

My 15 plus years in IT and Cybersecurity consulting has provided me the opportunity to assess and improve the security of several hundred unique businesses, from the Fortune 100 to small startups. This diverse experience enables me to bring creative solutions to common struggles, ensuring our services fit the unique needs of each of our clients.

I am lucky to live in Longmont, CO with my wife and our two cats. In my free time, I enjoy being active in the beautiful Colorado outdoors and exploring the diverse food and brewery scene.

Lee Evans

VP of Technical Operations

As VP of Technical Operations at Rhodian, I help businesses simplify the complexities that exist between them and their people.

My background in Management Information Systems, Systems Engineering and consulting for a variety of industries has helped me to build the capacity to help Rhodian clients navigate the sometimes perilous ocean of challenges. This allows me to leverage my experience to serve as a compass to help people get to where they want to go.

On a personal note, I am an avid reader I have likely read several hundred books and I have written more than 20 books on philosophy and power. I play the piano and I like traditional jazz music. I love swimming and walking for exercise. While I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, I am well-traveled. When the opportunity presents itself, I especially enjoy my vacations on the beach.

Ryan Smith, Vp Sales and Marketing, Rhodian
Ryan Smith

VP of Sales and Marketing

As VP of Sales and Marketing at Rhodian, I help businesses learn about the complexities that exist between them and their people, how they may be impacted, and how to solve these challenges.

My background in sales, education, mathematics, and insurance have helped me build a great foundation to be able to help Rhodian clients as a teacher and problem-solver at heart. Not only does it help our clients learn how to navigate choppy waters with our solutions, but this allows me to really put myself in their shoes and help find the best path ahead as an advisor and partner.

On a personal note, I have a wife and two small children that are really the driving energy behind what pushes my success and entrepreneurial spirit. Along with our trusty labradoodle, Krieger, we live in the Denver area, Broomfield, CO to be exact, where we enjoy the outdoors and do our best to take advantage of the great area – however, we love the chance to get everyone out to a beach whenever possible to sneak out on vacation.
