My Mission

“To deliver reliable solutions, using the best combination of technology and value for your business.”

About Me

I am the Founder of SMBMSP, Principal of Rick Mahn & Associates, and a Senior Consulting Engineer with CDW in their Microsoft Monitoring and Management services team. With nearly 25 years in Information Technologies Architecture experience and a decade of work with Social Media, my mission is to help people and organizations carry out their goals through the use of both proven and emerging techniques and technologies.

What I Do

I keep pace with changes in technology, sharing the knowledge gained as an early adopter with my clients. By working with new techniques and technologies early on, I am able to compare the benefits of new ideas with the tried & true practices that have made the Information Technology industry successful. I find the bits that work, or those that have promise, and leave the hype behind.

Ideas are easy, change is hard. Embrace Change

Rick worked on a very high profile database encryption project that was under extremely tight time constraints. He and his team delivered, on-time, the deployment, configuration, and on-going management of this crucial enterprise capability.
