My Dear Clients & Employees, 

As many of you know, I turned 70 this year. As a result, I'll be retiring at the end of July. It's been an amazing run and I'll miss spending time with all of you. That said, I leave you in great hands. It's been an honor to lead this fabulous group of individuals and I'm extremely proud of the organization we've built. 

To our valued clients, please know that I've thoroughly enjoyed meeting and getting to know you, your colleagues, and your companies. It's truly been my pleasure. I'm grateful for the relationships we've developed over the years. As I step down at the end of July, our current President, Tyler Smith, will add the title of CEO. I have no doubt that through Tyler's leadership and the strength of our incredible team, the attention and care you will receive, will be, in my biased opinion, second to none. 

To Team M&I, thank you for the opportunity to serve you. It's been a privilege to work alongside your exceptional talent and dedication. The strength and success of our organization would not be possible without you. 

Warm regards, 

Jim Umenhofer


 And now, a few words from M&I's new CEO, Tyler Smith: 

To our wonderful clients and employees:

Please join me in extending a heartfelt thank you to Jim Umenhofer for his 17 years of exceptional leadership of Matson & Isom Technology Consulting. As he retires and I move into the CEO role, I have some very large shoes to fill.   

Jim’s boundless optimism, energy, focus on the big picture, and deep belief in the power of supporting and empowering people, have forged a legacy of quality consulting and built a culture within M&I of gratitude, appreciation, and strong partnerships with our clients.   

I’ve learned so much from Jim over the past 16 years of working together. I definitely wouldn’t be the consultant and leader I am today without his patient and dedicated mentorship, coaching, and guidance over the years. Although we wish him a wonderful retirement, he will certainly be missed!

Tyler Smith, M&I CEO & Partner
