The Arizona Technology Council Board of Directors recently elected four new members to serve three-year terms.

The new members are Chad Fogg of Uber, Greg Kertman of Alliance Bank of Arizona, Bob Rasmussen of Honeywell Aerospace and Chuck Vermillion of AccountabilIT to its board of directors.

“Chuck, Greg, Bob and Chad are fantastic additions to our board, bringing more than 80 years of combined professional experience,” says Steven G. Zylstra, the Council’s president and CEO. “They will be an important asset to the Council as we continue to advance our agenda designed to make a positive and lasting impact on the technology industry.”

Fogg is global program manager, regulatory compliance at Uber. Before working for the transportation technology company, he began his career as a revenue management analyst for U.S. Airways, where he also assisted with the American Airlines merger. He graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University’s W. P. Carey School of Business with a B.S. in management and entrepreneurship, and a certificate of international business.

Kertman is a commercial banking professional at Alliance Bank of Arizona. He is committed to building long-term relationships with his clients by simplifying and solving complex financial challenges across a broad range of industries, including manufacturing, distribution, trade and transportation, healthcare, technology, retail, construction, and professional and business services.

Rasmussen is director of engineering in Honeywell Aerospace’s Advanced Technology organization, where he is responsible for technology strategic planning and portfolio management, intellectual property management, university research, and continuous improvement of Advanced Technology’s open innovation and competitive intelligence processes. He has worked at Honeywell for more than 37 years in a variety of technology development, program management and leadership roles.

Vermillion is founder and CEO of AccountabilIT, a Scottsdale-based provider of transformative information technology services. The company provides services internationally from its offices in Scottsdale; Wayne, Penn.; and Gurugram, India. Prior to AccountabilIT, Vermillion was founder and CEO of OneNeck IT Services, a Scottsdale-based managed services provider. Under Vermillion’s leadership, OneNeck grew to approximately $50 million in revenue and 250 employees. In July 2011, Vermillion sold OneNeck to TDS, a Fortune 500 company and parent company of US Cellular, for $95 million.

The Council’s board of directors serves an advisory and fiduciary role by representing the interests of the state’s technology industries in the group’s strategic planning and ongoing operations. The current board is comprised of 41 members representing a diverse set of Arizona-based organizations.
