Our Team

AMAZING PEOPLE, EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS.

Jim Smith

Jim Smith

Founder & CEO

A Philly native, Jim studied Managed Information Systems at Drexel University. He served in the Peace Corps in Tonga, where — after facing the challenge of managing IT at a college of 400 students with no budget —  he found his true calling of providing cost-effective IT solutions to small businesses and nonprofits. Jim is a leader in the enterprise security space, including policy, compliance, best practices, and lately, as a small business owner, on using metrics to consistently drive organizational improvements.

Later, he attended Drexel University, where he became a “double dragon,” earning both a BS and an MS in information systems. Since October 2015, Kalin has been part of the Proper Sky team and is currently overseeing mission-critical systems such as remote monitoring and management and cloud- based services.
