Navigating the Waters
Virtual C was founded by business and technology experts to empower companies to pursue their passions.
We identified a gap in the business world wherein companies had nowhere to turn to gain trusted advice on technology. Our goal is to deliver trusted advice by not reselling software or other services. In this way we can focus on delivering unbiased advice to our partners. We are also in it for the long haul. Our solutions are built to create sustainability and long term relationships to make your business successful.

Adam grew up in western Nebraska and attended elementary in a small country schoolhouse. His parents bought a home computer in the 80s and this cemented his technical path. He graduated as an All American in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. In the fall Adam quit his job, packed everything he owned in the trunk of his car and drove to Lincoln to propose to his future wife. In Lincoln he began working as technical support for law enforcement. Later, he took a job with a bank marketing firm that did data analytics. It was at this time that he began writing and speaking. A few years later Adam received an opportunity to work for a large company as a strategic technical lead. While working here Adam was able to shine by pulling many teams together to solve issues in high pressure situations. This is where he began shifting his career towards business and strategy
His years of experience in a variety of environments had given him a broad set of knowledge. He also enrolled in one of the nation's leading MBA programs to help broaden his knowledge to understand business process. From here Adam handled cloud migrations for one company and built an entire security program from scratch for another. Finally, he seized an opportunity to quit his job to begin working on his dream company.
Adam is a husband to an amazing wife and parent of 4 children, all of which were adopted within 5 months of each other. People look at us like we are crazy when we tell them but it is how life worked out and we love every minute of it.

SKIP ZIEGLER - vCIO Coach
With over 3 decades of experience in IT Skip Ziegler has developed a results driven focus on applying technology to meet the needs of the business. Drawing on a broad skillset from implementing and supporting IT infrastructure and leading engineering teams he is able to provide clarity to IT organizations and business leaders to maximize their technical investments.
Early in his career he realized that just understanding the technology was only part of the challenge.

Throughout his career Skip has had the chance to work from both the service provider and the client relationship, work with cutting edge technologies, lead support teams, and direct business activities as a manager and owner.
Skip and his wife Paula are West Texas natives with 4 kids, 2 grandkids and a growing desire to travel and see more of the world (or at least see places that have really good food).
