Our Team

Our team of consulting professionals all have extensive “real world” experience as senior level IT managers in a variety of industries. As a result we can provide our clients with the highest level of quality service based on “been there, done that”, rather than relying on a purely hypothetical approach to problem solving.




Mr. Sam Schneider, President of CIO Options, has over 35 years’ experience in senior level IT management in a variety of organizations primarily within high-growth, rapidly changing environments. Over the course of his career Mr. Schneider has been responsible for developing and implementing IT strategy at established publicly traded multi-national companies such as Proteon and Cognex, “start-up” companies such Achievement Technologies (an educational software company where he also served as CTO and was also responsible for product development and support), I4Commerce (acquired by eBay) and EqualLogic (acquired by Dell Computer) and non-profit organizations (MSPCA/Angell Memorial).

Mr. Schneider started his career working in the manufacturing function of Computervision prior to moving into the IT function, and much of his career has been spent working in high tech manufacturing/supply chain and software development environments. Both as a consultant and as a “hands on” in-house resource, Mr. Schneider has led multiple ERP, CRM and enterprise level financial systems evaluations and successful implementations. These packages have spanned a wide variety of technologies and vendors (e.g. Oracle, PeopleSoft, Salesforce.com, Seibel, and NetSuite, among others.).
