Chief Information Officer
Randy knows what it takes to be an impactful leader, and as our CIO, he is excited about driving the future state of Morgan Samuels through digital transformation and cloud capabilities.
From howitzers to hardware and a lot in between, Randy brings a trove of unique experiences to Morgan Samuels. After graduating from college, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and worked his way up to the rank of Captain. He then moved on to a career in technology, where he has spent the last 22+ years doing innovative work from deploying complex engineering capabilities to leading global architecture in Fortune 500 companies within a variety of industries including pharmaceutical, biotechnology, finance, and high tech.
Randy’s experience as a Marine has shaped his leadership style and approach. Being able to see how a strategy is developed, delivered, and executed from the top down has enabled him to more effectively lead the teams he manages. And understanding the power of listening has been an invaluable lesson for him in compassion and humility.
Randy did his undergraduate work at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon and received a Master’s degree in Applied Information Management from the University of Oregon. As a Pacific Northwest native, Randy enjoys his Pac-12 teams, especially the Oregon Ducks and Gonzaga Bulldogs. He also enjoys hiking, exploring, and collecting and trading sports memorabilia. But mostly, he enjoys experiencing life’s adventures with his wife, two kids, and two Goldendoodles.
