A retired U.S. Army officer and service-disabled veteran with 24 years of active military service, Anthony Jimenez founded MicroTech in March of 2004.  It’s now one of the largest Hispanic-owned IT Integrators in America.

Under his leadership, MicroTech services cover cloud computing, cybersecurity, telecommunications, and mobility and Big Data solutions.  Jimenez has grown the business into a quarter-billion dollar company with employees in more than 30 states supporting prime contracts with civilian and defense agencies as well as IT and network support to Fortune 500 companies. He is also an advocate for the Latino, veteran, minority and small business communities.

Jimenez serves or has served on influential public boards, including the U.S. Department of Commerce National Advisory Council on Minority Business Enterprise, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, the Harvard Journal of Hispanic Policy, the Partnership for a New American Economy, and the Board of Directors at the National Capitol Area Council (Boy Scouts of America).

He has also testified before Congress and has drafted legislation to improve opportunities for small business owners. Additionally, he has met with the White House and senior advisors on jobs, educational opportunities, entrepreneurship, and the economy.

Jimenez earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer and information systems from Webster University, a master’s degree in acquisition management from Florida Institute of Technology, and a Bachelor of Applied Science in business management from St. Mary’s University.

In April 2016, he was named to STEMconnector’s list of “100 CEO Leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math,” which featured CEOs who offer their unique perspective on the issues facing America’s STEM workforce.
