Rochester, N.Y. — ProArch, a global technology firm based in Atlanta, Georgia, with strong roots in the Greater Rochester and Syracuse, New York, markets, is proud to share that two of its technology leaders have been accepted into Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community for world-class CIOs, CTOs and technology executives. Chief Technology Officer of Cloud, Infrastructure, & Security Michael Montagliano and Chief Technology Officer of Software Development & Data Analytics Murray Foxcroft are members of the Forbes Technology Council.

Montagliano and Foxcroft were vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of their experience. Criteria for acceptance include a track record of successfully impacting business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors.

Since being accepted into the council last month, Montagliano has already been included in two Forbes Technology stories, including one titled 15 Smart Strategies for Ensuring a Successful Red Team Exercise (March 16) and another titled 14 Important Initiatives Every Tech Leader Should Pursue in 2021 (March 18).

“We are honored to welcome Michael and Murray into the community,” Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Technology Council, said in a statement provided by the council. “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”

As council members, Montagliano and Foxcroft will connect and collaborate with other respected leaders in this private forum. Notably, they will be invited to work with a professional editorial team to share expert insights in original business articles on and to contribute to published Q&A panels alongside other experts.

Montagliano joined ProArch after 20 years of information technology experience in cybersecurity for organizations across all industries, sizes, and regulatory compliance frameworks. As CTO, Montagliano’s primary function is to lead the technology strategy and execution for security, compliance, and cloud practices. With subject-matter expertise in security and disaster recovery, he and his team have been engaged with organizations nationwide.

Foxcroft has spent his career as a solutions architect for his clients and a technical leader for his colleagues. As CTO, Foxcroft has developed ProArch’s proprietary cloud data platform, Dataware, and worked side-by-side with ProArch tech sustainability startup Mondra to bring Dataware to new markets. Along with Data Analytics and AI, Foxcroft steers ProArch’s Software Development practice. He thrives on collaborating with customers and architecting products that fit their needs and deliver results.

In 2020, ProArch acquired iV4, an Upstate New York-based technology firm. Earlier this month, iV4 officially became ProArch. The two companies are now working together as ProArch. For more information, visit
