Join us for a candid and inspirational session featuring Jim Leto, president and chief executive officer of Robbins-Gioia. Mr. Leto has led a number of technology firms in the area and built a reputation for corporate turnarounds.  Learn the secrets of his success and why the Harvard Business Review featured the transformation of GTSI, a company Mr. Leto was asked to lead when it was on the brink of bankruptcy.  Mr. Leto will share his thoughts on how to create a successful corporate culture and how leaders can tap into employee creativity and build enthusiasm, even when times are tough.
Mr. Leto returned to Robbins-Gioia in 2012 as both the CEO and owner, having participated in a management buyout from its prior owner.  He had been CEO of Robbins-Gioia from 2002 to 2006. He started his career at AT&T and became president of AT&T Canada before joining information technology company PRC, where he became chairman/CEO.

Mr. Leto is a leader in the Washington area technology community, and is a frequent keynote speaker at industry events and conferences. He has been honored with two Federal Computer Week Federal 100 awards, was named to Canada's most influential business leaders list, and has been quoted in numerous magazine, newspaper, radio, and television interviews.
