Task Force Member
Sandro Alvarez has over 29 years of IT experience and a multitude of hardware and software certifications.
Mr. Alvarez began his career in avionics for a local cargo airline, and due to his love for planes, he decided to attend flight school
and was accepted to Embry-Riddle Flight School. The technology was another area of interest and came so easy that he ultimately moved to the IT department at that local cargo airline. Eventually, Mr. Alvarez became the IT manager after integrating all 35 offices worldwide and increasing productivity by the use of technology. Shortly thereafter he joined a local IT firm providing services to law firms and other businesses. He was ultimately hired as the IT director at one of Miami’s oldest law firms. In 2001 he started New Global Solutions until 2013 when Internos was born.
Even after leaving the law firm as the IT director, Sandro has stayed involved in the legal community by serving multiple times in the Florida Bar grievance committee. His dedication and relationships with vendors have raised him to serve on numerous advisory boards. As a founding member of WatchGuard Security channel partners, Sandro currently sits on their advisory board, ensuring that the security products created for the enterprise are available to the SMB environment at an affordable cost.
