Leading Technology Solutions Provider Welcomes Back Griffin to Spearhead Advisory and Consulting Practice Growth 

CHICAGO, September 14, 2023 — SDI Presence LLC (SDI), a managed services provider (MSP) and certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) with Corporate Plus designation from the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), announces the return of Patrick Griffin as the Managing Director of SLED-West Advisory and Consulting Services. In his role, Griffin will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the advisory and consulting practice, including client relations, customer satisfaction, business expansion strategies, and more. 

Griffin brings a wealth of experience and expertise to his new position. Having previously served in leadership roles within SDI Presence, his return plays a strategic role in the firm’s growth in the public sector. His deep understanding of the industry from over 40 years working in the public sector, coupled with his dynamic leadership style, is expected to drive the expansion of SDI Presence’s footprint in the State, Local, and Education (SLED) markets in the western region.

Griffin’s role will encompass a range of responsibilities, including fostering strong client relationships, ensuring exceptional customer satisfaction, and strategically guiding business expansion initiatives. His dedication to leveraging technology to address the unique challenges faced by local government agencies and educational institutions will enhance SDI Presence’s impact in the region.  

Griffin has held various roles during his municipal career—including finance and community development leadership positions. He concluded his local government career as the Assistant City Manager for Chino, CA. Griffin then transitioned to the private sector, becoming a Principal at NexLevel Information Technology, overseeing their Southern California operations and accounts.
