IT Security Expert Kevin Lee Expands TAG CXO’s Consulting Power

35-year technology and operations veteran will lead new cybersecurity practice

PHOENIX, Ariz., January 10, 2023 – TAG CXO today expanded its team of premier technology leaders available as consultants and fractional executives when Kevin Lee joined the TAG CXO team as director of the cybersecurity practice.

Lee brings the comprehensive experience built on a 35-year career as both a C-level executive and practice leader for industry-leading consultancies. 

His background covers the gamut of operational needs and IT solutions, and he has delivered transformational technology for dozens of clients.

For example, Lee directed major strategic and operational changes for a consumer products company to facilitate rapid growth. The solution encompassed successful deployment of new systems – an ERP and a warehouse management system – including the necessary IT security elements. The project was completed in a six-month period.

Operational efficiency, revenue growth and profitability have been the drivers behind most of Lee’s various engagements. 

As a practice leader for several key consulting firms – including a firm he started and operated – Lee, led and supported more than 80 client engagements that have impacted bottom line results, totaling millions of dollars in revenue enhancement and cost reduction. 

Lee has been a valued member of several prestigious firms, including Accenture, Deloitte, Kodak, Arthur Andersen and Crossroads LLC.

The complexity and risk businesses face today is what prompted Lee to fully transition his professional focus to cyber security and become a fierce advocate for it in all his engagements. 

“I understand business – from strategy to operations – and technology must contribute to the business needs and objectives or it’s not doing its job,” Lee said. “Now, it also must do this while minimizing IT security risks, protecting business and customer data, as well as maximizing the integrity of the systems themselves.”

“The risk of cyber-attack has grown exponentially over the past few years. Being able to connect the dots between business needs and a secure, reliable technology operating environment is more important than ever before. Kevin Lee has been doing that for 35 years, and we’re proud to have him as our new cybersecurity practice director,” said Paul Theisen, founder and principal of TAG CXO.
