An industry-acclaimed business and technology leader, Philip Alberta encompasses the vision, strategy and leadership to drive IT business innovation, growth and excellence in the workplace.

Alberta also plays an integral role in developing executive client relationships, mapping solutions to business objectives and ensuring maximum value is realized from project investments.

With a proven track record for implementing fiscally responsible strategies, Alberta joined IPM as a Business Analyst in early 2011 from RTA Group, Alberta’s independent business advisory firm. In this capacity, he worked with executive management to commence an internal company review to identify opportunities across the business and propose viable solutions. He officially assumed the Chief Information Officer role in January 2012.

In 2004, Hogan Consulting Group was established as a solution provider in Northwest Indiana.  With a background as a Systems Engineer, Michael saw the need for higher specialization and proficiencies in the technology world around virtualization, application delivery, systems management and security.  Over the years Michael has guided Hogan Consulting to become a premier service provider in the Midwest with offices and resources that cover Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky.  Having grown a company with a focus on improving business outcomes for clients, Michael has worked on many facets of how technology can be used to improve business as a whole.  In January of 2015, Hogan Consulting Group was awarded the Citrix Partner Innovation Award in the Enterprise space.  This award is an international recognition of how HCG applied technologies to completely transform business for one of its clients.    HCG has been recognized by its vendor partners as being a leader in the field with such accreditations as Citrix Platinum, VMware Enterprise, AppSense Platinum, and Lakeside Gold.


Paul Kunze is Vice President of Sales & Marketing of IntraSystems.  Mr. Kunze’s experience in the industry as well as his vision has kept IntraSystems on the top of its class for 20 years.  Since IntraSystems inception, Paul has maintained highly successful partnerships with key vendors, such as VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft while continuing to grow partnerships with other leading technology vendors to ensure IntraSystems meets the growing needs of their customer base.  Paul actively serves as a member on several vendors’ technology councils.

Serving as Chief Technology Officer, Mr. Lesniakowski provides expertise in translating customer system requirements into solution designs and is ultimately tasked with developing and directing AEC Group’s overall technology strategy.

In his role as CTO, Brian also manages the Technical Architect team, provides pre-sales support, and issues information necessary for the company’s marketing department to support marketing and sales activities.

During his 18 years with AEC and his tenure as Chief Technology Officer, Brian has found that the continual challenges associated with maintaining a strong awareness and understanding of technology maturation and evolution is the catalyst that makes his position with AEC Group
so rewarding. The combination of clients, employees, and OEM partners provides such a unique work environment that never stagnates and offers Brian and his co-workers a wealth of opportunities for professional and personal achievement.
