CIOVoIP is a division of CIO Now, LLC. Founded in 2010 by Chris France and Bruce Brown. Chris and Bruce met while working together in the IT Department of a large Phoenix-based Personal Injury Law Firm. When they met, Chris brought 20+ Years of Network and Telecom Design, Installation & Maintenance and Bruce had successfully Managed IT Departments for several prestigious law firms and banking businesses in and around Phoenix. In 2010 they decided to create the IT consultant business they never met while working their corporate jobs. An IT Consultancy with not only the skills to tackle complex technology situations, but to add an out of the box mentality and common sense to their approach. To create lasting relationships as a TRUSTED business partner who cared more about the quality of their customers’ success than the number of hours they could bill.
Bruce retired in 2018 and is still available to CIO Now in an advisory and administrative role when needed. Chris runs the day to day and acts as CIO Now’s Technology Guru.

Integrity above all else is our guide to lasting technology relationships.
