Thought Leaders

  • Aida Keehner

    CEO
    Atruent
    With over 30 years of experience in the Information Technology field, I manage and advise SMBs across a multitude of verticals for all IT related matters. Using a Managed Services Platform which includes cyber-security tools, my main focus is to streamline business environments utilizing best practices, whilst insuring that Business Owners can concentrate on what they do best. I thoroughly enjoy jigsaw puzzles; which is probably why I love engineering solutions for my clients as it is the same concept; no matter what the technology used (Cloud Computing, Office 365 environment including SharePoint setup, Security, network, etc.). There absolutely nothing more rewarding than seeing all the pieces fitting together up until the point you put the very last one. I have build my business based on the same principles I use to build any relationship (Business or Personal): Trust and Honesty. I belong to multiple CEO peer groups and received the SmartCEO Brava Award for high-impact female business leaders in 2016.
