About Peter

Peter Campbell is a senior strategic consultant with Marcum Technology whose focus has been on transforming unaligned technology systems into integrated, usable platforms.

Mr. Campbell specializes in technology consulting and outsourced CIO services for clients, including CRM/donor/member management, finance/ERP, and document management system implementations, information architecture, cloud migrations, IT staffing strategy and mentoring, technology assessments and strategic planning, software selection and procurement, data strategy, business process analysis, and information policy development.

His professional accomplishments include:

  • Bringing a mid-sized commercial law firm from 11 disparate systems to an integrated, SQL-Server based platform with MS Outlook serving as a portal to mail and voice communications, documents, CRM, and the company intranet;
  • Developing award-winning retail reporting and management software for a large thrift enterprise;
  • Starting up an e-commerce program, beating the two year breakeven projection by six months and growing into the most profitable arm of the business;
  • Moving a Federal funding agency into a unified, cloud-based platform for information management built on Salesforce, Box, and Tableau.

In addition to his consulting, Mr. Campbell speaks and writes regularly for prominent nonprofit technology support organizations like NTEN, Techsoup, and Idealware.

Prior to joining the Firm, Peter served for 30 years as a CIO, VP/IT, or IT Director at law firms and nonprofits, including Legal Services Corporation, Earthjustice, and Goodwill Industries of San Francisco. In 2017, he made a career switch to fractional CIO work and consulting, based on his belief that nonprofits that cannot afford a full-time technology strategist can still benefit greatly from part-time engagements.
