SAN RAMON, Calif., March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Clare Computer Solutions (CCS), a San Francisco Bay Area business technology service provider offering computer network support, IT consulting and on-demand IT services to businesses, announces that Brad Mendonsa will become the company's new chief executive officer, and CCS President Ralph Lawhorn will become the company's chief operating officer.
Mendonsa came to CCS in 2006, as part of a merger between CCS and Golden State Networks, of which he was a co-founder. Since the merger, Mendonsa has been instrumental in increasing CCS' IT Managed Services practice, as well as the company's IT consulting business. He also has provided considerable influence on CCS' corporate culture shift from a "breakfix" company to a provider of highly professional proactive IT support and consulting services.
Lawhorn has been with CCS for over 18 years and served as president for the last six years. The addition of the COO role leverages his deep experience with the operations at CCS and the technical service teams. A former field technician himself, Lawhorn is uniquely qualified to handle the day-to-day operations and direct the remote helpdesk and field technical service forces.
"This new leadership structure is ideal for our future growth goals," says Tony Barone, CCS' co-founder and Board Chairman. "We have a perfect mix of experience and technical skills, coupled with energy and business acumen. We want to expand our role as a leader in IT consulting and proactive support services – and this team has the focus that will make this a reality."
