Xamin Announces Leadership Transition: Jeff Brandt Appointed as New CEO

Lincolnshire, IL – Xamin, a leading IT consulting company and subsidiary of Mowery & Schoenfeld, today announced a strategic leadership change as part of its growth-focused initiatives. Jonathan Smith, founder and former CEO of Xamin, has been succeeded by Jeff Brandt effective December 11, 2023. This transition reflects the company's commitment to driving innovation, expanding service offerings, and further solidifying its position as a key player in the IT Services and Consulting industry.

“Jonathan Smith and Pete Smothers [co-founders] have built a successful business atop a foundation of well-trained, reliable, and courteous colleagues who have consistently delivered and supported a host of IT solutions for years,” said Brandt. “I am fortunate to join a company with so many strengths.”

In support of increasing client value through innovation, Xamin has engaged Suraj Prakash as the company’s Chief Technology Officer. Suraj will maintain oversight of the company’s core products while also developing and delivering technologies to help Xamin’s clients extract the most value from their technology investment.

Jeff Brandt, with a proven track record in executive leadership, is well-equipped to lead Xamin into its next phase of development. He brings over thirty years of experience, most recently as the President of William Frick & Company, having successfully spearheaded growth strategies, operational enhancements, and client satisfaction initiatives in his previous roles.

The Management Committee at Mowery & Schoenfeld, Xamin’s parent company, is confident that Jeff Brandt's leadership will contribute significantly to the company's growth and success in the evolving IT consulting landscape.

"We are honored to have Jeff Brandt lead Xamin at this pivotal moment in its journey. Xamin has a strong foundation, a talented team, and a reputation for delivering exceptional value to its clients,” said Jeffery Mowery, Managing Partner at Mowery & Schoenfeld. “I believe with Jeff Brandt’s leadership, Xamin will be able to drive innovation, expand service offerings, and create even greater value for clients."
