Randall N. Olejnik, President and CEO
As the founder of Cilio Technologies, Randy Olejnik combines vision, entrepreneurship, and strategic IT thinking with more than 30 years of executive leadership in business process reengineering and solution development within the retail, distribution, and manufacturing sectors.
Randy is the visionary behind the Cilio Partners Portal, one of the first cloud-based applications connecting various partners in the retail, distribution and manufacturing industries supporting installed order sales and related purchase order management. He built the first portal for a major manufacturer and their retail sales channel, which supported over 1,700 U.S. locations and 500 related distributors and fabricator/installers. This first portal unified the order completion and approval process for hundreds of thousands of installed sales orders. Since then, the portal has evolved to support multiple manufacturers and sales channels, where today nearly $1 billion of special orders and related purchase orders are being managed. Randy’s focus for the portal is to continuously add services and capabilities that drive sales in Cilio clients’ sales channels, ranging from order distribution and management to incentive systems and analytics. The goal is to provide visibility, effective communication, and value-added functionality so that all partners WIN using the Cilio Partners Portal.
Prior to Cilio, Randy founded Ranco Systems Inc. and served as its President and CEO. At Ranco, he designed, developed, installed and supported ERP applications on a national basis for distributors, manufacturers, and retailers, resulting in over 200 installations nationally supporting thousands of individual users. Randy sold Ranco Systems to DMSI Inc. in 2001 to begin the evolution into web-based solutions, now referred to as cloud computing.
In addition to being a serial entrepreneur, Randy is an enthusiastic husband, father and grandfather to his wife Susan, his five children and their spouses, and ten grandchildren. Randy has always been a promoter of family values and “the family business” and is proud that currently two of his sons are partners with him in Cilio’s success and that his three other children are keeping the entrepreneurial spirit alive running their own successful business ventures.
Allen Klumpp, Partner/VP of Security and Infrastructure
Allen Klumpp was an early leader in information security best practices and solution development, including security audits for Fortune 500 firms and developing the digital security software used by President Clinton to sign the Digital Security Act into law. This experience along with his 20+ years in system design and development, quality assurance, and project management serve him well as Cilio’s VP of Security and Infrastructure.
Allen oversees technical infrastructure and security for the Partners Portal. As one of the first cloud-based applications in the manufacturing industry, the portal required pioneering some of today’s best practices for ensuring data and infrastructure integrity in a hosted environment. Allen successfully managed the infrastructure deployment of the portal for a major retailer and its trading partners supporting $200,000,000 of installed sales. In this role, he was involved in all phases of deploying and managing a solution used by multiple manufacturers to manage fabricators, dealers, promotions, rebates, projects and orders. He also designed and implemented a variety of communication solutions for sharing data between different systems that include AS2, EDI, FTP, web services and email and helped customers leverage the portal’s built-in incentive program.
When it’s time to relax, Allen enjoys watching cooking shows and likes to try and replicate the tasty dishes he sees on TV.
