In Episode 8  and 9 of Today’s Top Leaders IJen Anderson CEO of Moving Forward Solutions, interviews Earl Foote, founder, and CEO of Nexus IT Consultants. 

He is also the co-founder of Elevate International, a passion project about offering adventures, retreats, and humanitarian service opportunities to leaders. 

Earl was nominated as a guest by Linda Rawson, founder of DynaGrace Enterprises. Here’s what Linda had to say about Earl:

“I respect great IT leaders in the community. And I have noticed Earl, and I got the opportunity to be in a little mini mastermind with Earl. And what a wealth of experience he has. And in particular, he’s now started his cybersecurity business. And he doesn’t do anything halfway. Everything he does is so professional and just as hard as he can. And he has become one of the most knowledgeable people in cybersecurity; I feel like in the Salt Lake Valley.

Meanwhile, he also plays in a band, and he has a personality. So I feel like he’s well-rounded and just super fun. And I’m sure that St Patrick’s Day is one of his favorite holidays because he looks Irish. So I think he’s just a great pillar in the community and has a lot to offer as far as knowledge and balance. Being able to have a little bit of fun while you work.”
