Mario Peraza

Chief Information Officer

"Mens sana in corpore sano…a healthy mind in a healthy body."
When Mario Peraza sets his mind on something, there is nothing that stands in his way. Whether it’s a marathon personal best, or implementing a transformative cloud platform or security protocols, he brings a rare level of dedication and innovation to his role as Chief Information Officer at Morgan Samuels.

With over 15 years of experience delivering technical services for businesses of varying size and complexity, Mario has a deep appreciation for empowering professional services firms to provide the best experience to clients and candidates, and understands the challenges clients face as they go through their own growth journeys.

As our CIO Mario is responsible for driving technology-enabled innovation, strategic business transformation, service and solution delivery, and transforming IT to be value-driven while supporting accelerated growth for the organization.

Prior to Morgan Samuels, Mario led the design, planning, and implementation of cloud and big data solutions for a broad range of clients as a Senior Engineer at SACA Technologies, First Advantage, and LexisNexis. Mario translated client needs into system designs and deployments, while focusing on educating his teammates and clients’ users alike.

Mario has a BS in Management Information Systems from California State University, Fullerton.

When Mario isn’t transforming our technical infrastructure, you’ll find him with his family. With his home base in Orange County, California, Mario, along with his wife and two kids, take any opportunity to hike, surf, snowboard, or just explore the world around them.
