Alison Ziskind, CEO
Alison is the CEO of TexPC Solutions and works with small towns, municipalities, and business to help make IT more understandable, relieve technology pain points, and coordinate The Mayor's CTO program. She is also responsible for client acquisition, federal contracting management, and managing the people of TexPC Solutions.
Alison believes that small-town mayors and city officials deserve respectful and thorough IT education and services tailored to the unique needs of each town, and that IT solutions are NOT one size fits all. Above all, Alison works toward win-win solutions for her clients and their providers to ensure cybersecurity safety and compliance with emerging legislation and best practices.
Alison's background includes active-duty service in the United States Navy as a Hospital Corpsman from 1993-1996, 20 years running her own small business in women's health, and studying psychology at the University of Missouri-Columbia from 1996-1999. When she's not talking to mayors about cybersecurity, Alison can be found spending time with her husband, their five kids, and their goldendoodle Fozzie. A native of California and now a proud Texan, she is an avid knitter, reads voraciously, and competed in the Ironman 70.3 triathlon in 2018.
