Moss Adams further expands IT consulting capabilities in Dallas

New director will advise clients on data and network infrastructure

DALLAS, May 16, 2016—Moss Adams LLP, one of the largest accounting and business consulting firms in the nation, announced the addition of Mike Simone to its Dallas office as a director of IT consulting.

During his more than 17 years in IT consulting, Simone has managed an extensive range of projects for clients, including IT assessments, the architecture and delivery of IT infrastructure networks, full IT outsourcing and complete data center migrations and consolidations. He also performs virtual chief information officer (CIO) services and has comprehensive experience in technology planning and IT governance methodologies, including business continuity and disaster recovery. Simone spends most of his time serving clients in the financial institution, oil and gas, and private equity industry sectors.

“There’s a profound need for accessible, practical solutions related to IT infrastructure among our clients, and we’re happy to add Mike’s expertise to what we offer,” said Francis Tam, a partner in the Moss Adams IT Auditing & Consulting Practice. “Mike excels at presenting technical information to executive staff in a manner that’s effective and understandable.”

Simone will work directly with clients, advising both their IT steering committees and executives and helping to align and deliver their technology wants with their business needs. He will also further develop the firm’s IT service offerings in Texas and other regions. 

“Given how rapidly IT networks, cybersecurity and IT regulations evolve today, businesses often need someone who can translate highly technical topics into an actionable strategic plan that protects their business and also gives them a competitive advantage,” Simone said. “I’m looking forward to working with clients to strategize, advise and ultimately help them address the challenges they face.”

Simone is a VMware certified professional (VCP), a Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) enterprise administrator and an MCITP enterprise messaging administrator. He was previously a technology and management consulting director at RSM LLP and senior IT architect for JP Morgan Chase & Co. He attended the University of Missouri at Kansas City.
