Vice President of Compliance & Security
Jeff Dicks partnered with Luis and Ronni Alvarez in 2001 to start a small technology consultant business called Alvarez Technology Group. With the vision of complete managed services and the mission to make downtime obsolete, they developed the small local consultancy into a successful managed services company, serving organizations throughout Central California, the Bay Area, and Ventura County.
After dedicating eight years to the Alvarez Technology Group contract at the Department of Defense Personal Security Research Center (PERSEREC), Jeff brought his extensive network and security knowledge back to the company as the Vice President of Compliance and Security. During this time as the Network and Security Administrator at PERSEREC, he managed and maintained the host based security system, cyber security, and the enterprise level Cisco firewall.
Born and raised Santa Cruz County, Jeff currently lives in the Monterey area with his wife, Milena, and their Doberman Pinscher, Xena. Their three children are currently in college. He is an active Rotary member, an adult leader through the White Stag Youth Leadership Program, and volunteers with the Boy Scouts of America Venturing Youth Development Program. In his spare time, he enjoys mountain biking, backpacking, and wakeboarding.
