Gabe Ruiz is owner and president of Advanced IT Concepts

Gabe Ruiz is owner and president of Advanced IT Concepts, (AITC) Inc., a Florida-based Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and Minority 8(a) Information Technology company, focused on supporting the Federal, State and Local governments, as well as those organizations supporting them.

Prior to founding AITC in 2006, Gabe spent 26 years as an Army Communications and Technology Acquisition Officer. During his tenure in the Army, Gabe helped modernize the entire Army’s Information Technology infrastructure by conducting research, implementing pilot programs, and eventually deploying countless IT systems at more than 100 Army installations across the globe. Gabe retired in 2006 as Lieutenant Colonel.

Gabe was able to do this in great part because of his formal and informal education. He is a 1985 graduate of the University of Puerto Rico, Bayamon campus, where he received his Bachelor’s in Computer Science and his ROTC Commission. In 1995, Gabe completed his Masters of Science in Information Technology and in 1996 his MBA from Western International University, in Phoenix, AZ. Gabe is also a graduate of the Army’s Communications Officers Basic and Advanced courses, the Computer Science course, and the Command and Staff College.

Gabe moved to Florida in 2001 as an Army Major to attend a Training With Industry (TWI) assignment with Lockheed Martin Information Systems (LMIS), supporting the Army’s Simulation Training and Instrumentation (STRI) Command. Gabe and his wife, Sandra, purchased a home in Casselberry and they have made Florida their home ever since.

Now, as AITC’s owner and president, Gabe is focused on growing his company by proving expert advice and superior IT and logistics solutions and services to his customers and partners.
