Frantz Ward LLP is pleased to announce that John C. Rowland has joined the firm as Director of Technology Support Services, a redesigned role to position the firm for future growth.
“John is a great fit for both our culture and technology needs,” said Christopher Keim, Managing Partner of Frantz Ward. “While he understands the daily challenges and security needed for a law firm, he will also bring new ideas from his experience in other industries to further help meet our clients’ needs.”
John is responsible for planning, managing and directing the technology, communication, and information systems of the firm. He reviews new products and systems; oversees the monitoring and maintenance of the network, hardware, telecommunications, email, and desktop infrastructure; and oversees information technology development and support. He also ensures the safety and security of the firm's data systems and member account information. John works closely with the COO/CFO in developing short- and long-term IT goals and plans.
John studied at Miami University's School of Interdisciplinary Studies and has nearly two decades of experience as a consultant and CTO for a local legal-focused IT firm and as a director for a publicly-traded leading managed IT service organization.
