Iron Bow Technologies LLC, an information technology solutions provider, announced today that its Chief Technology Officer, Jim Smid, has been appointed to the Intel Solution Provider Advisory Council.

“I am honored to join the Intel Solution Provider Advisory Council, which provides Iron Bow a platform by which to help shape technology solutions as they are first emerging within our market,” said Smid. “Initiatives like these reflect our larger effort to deliver the solutions that best align with each of our customers’ business goals and missions.

We are honored to have him on the board and look forward to the many great ideas he will bring to product planning and program development at Intel.”

With 20 years of experience in IT engineering, sales, project and business management for the federal and commercial marketplaces, Smid manages the company’s technology practice directors supporting over $825 million in sales annually.
