Mr. Rice is the Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of CornerStone IT. He spent the last 40 years providing information technology and program leadership supporting both the private and public sectors.  Mr. Rice has engineered specialized hardware devices, developed operating systems, communications protocols, and architected enterprise-wide solutions in support of the government's business line portfolios.  Supporting GSA for nearly 20 years, Mr. Rice was privileged and honored to support three Presidential Transition Teams.  Mr. Rice’s primary focus, over the past decade, has been in business development.  He is an engineer by trade and a teacher by nature.  The engineer in Mr. Rice is driven to learn how this Business Development mechanism ticks.  The teacher in him is excited to share what he’s discovered.  Thus, the “In Pursuit Business Development Life Cycle” book series.  Mr. Rice continues to keep his technical curiosity satisfied influencing and establishing standards in the implementation and integration of emerging technologies across the IT landscape.  Mr. Rice is currently assigned to a joint government and industry project team established to streamline government acquisition through the use of these same emerging technologies.
