The demand for Managed IT services is growing, and ImageNet Consulting remains ahead of the curve in both services and expertise. We’ve recently expanded our expert team of Managed IT consultants with the addition of several virtual Chief Information Officers for seven of our service areas. Let's meet them!
ImageNet's vCIO Team
Nathaniel Canales – vCIO, Houston, TX
Nathaniel Canales has over 14 years of experience in the IT field. He has always loved computers and knew he wanted to work in IT at an early age. Nathan graduated from high school a year early and immediately began college courses while working for a dial-up ISP (back when 56k still existed.) Throughout his college years, he kept technology at the forefront of his education and job experiences. Nathan’s worn many hats in technology roles for many companies and industries, from the oil and gas industry (Stripes/Susser Petroleum) to retail fashion (Charming Charlie). After moving to Houston, Nathan went from in-house to managed service style support with a consulting role. His love for technology and finding the right solutions drives him in his role as ImageNet’s Houston vCIO. He envisions the growth possible for ImageNet & our adept cross-country team.
Paul Clifton - MIT Help Desk Manager
Paul Clifton is the MIT Help Desk Manager. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from New Mexico Highlands University in 2008 and started working in the IT field right away. Paul has been with ImageNet for over eight years. Paul began his ImageNet career in the internal IT department when ImageNet first purchased TNT Office Source. Afterward, he moved into the copier service side as a system engineer for five years. Then, he moved to the MIT helpdesk when ImageNet launched MIT services. Mr. Clifton now oversees most aspects of ImageNet’s MIT helpdesk. Paul has been married for nine years to his wife, Melissa. His hobbies are fly fishing, archery, bowling and a fair amount of online gaming.
Raymond Clark – vCIO, Vero Beach, FL
Raymond Clark joined ImageNet Consulting in 2019 as the Vero Beach vCIO. Previously, Raymond was the President and Owner of Clark Computer Services in Vero Beach, Florida. Learning from his computer tech dad from a young age, Raymond has always been fascinated with all things electronic. Raymond started out working with his dad for several years and received his A+ certification. After his father passed away in 2000, he continued to service his father’s clients, while working full time in the industry for other businesses. Eventually, Raymond’s client base grew to the point he was able to focus his full attention on Clark Computer Services and so, in 2008, he transitioned from full-time employee to business owner. In 2019, Clark Computer Service was acquired by ImageNet and Raymond joined ImageNet in his current role as the Vero Beach vCIO.
Stephen Demsky – vCIO, Dallas, TX
Stephen Demsky is the vCIO for Managed IT Services in Dallas, TX. Stephen began his IT career four years ago as a Jr. Systems Administrator and began working in a managed services role shortly after that. After being hired by a client to serve as Director of IT and Security, Stephen decided that consulting ultimately provided the pace and challenge needed to feel fulfilled in his career. As a trusted technical advisor to ImageNet clients, Stephen’s focus is the overall simplification and securing of customer infrastructure.
In addition to numerous industry certifications, Stephen holds an A.A.S. in Cybersecurity and will complete his B.S in Cybersecurity this spring. He also holds an A.A. in music and was an aspiring Baritone in a past life.
