Episode 012: In this week’s episode of Milemarker’s Connected Podcast, I talk with Stephen Simons, Chief Executive Officer at Restyn. Our conversation centers around how an MSP (Managed Service Provider) can help wealth management firms with many aspects of their business including IT, security, and compliance.

An entrepreneur with strong strategic planning, critical thinking, and technology solution delivery skills, Stephen emphasizes the need for a strategic approach to IT.
