Frank M. DeBenedetto

President and Chief Technology Advisor

Frank M. DeBenedetto has spent the past two decades passionately helping business owners navigate the complex world of technology. His interest in technology began back in college when he had trouble finding someone to fix the computer he was using to write lab reports. After watching one of his classmates reinstall the operating system, he became enamored with computers and their impact on our lives. Frank has always been determined to keep pace with modern technology and, today, that path has led him to become a highly sought after expert in the area of cloud computing.

A graduate of Rutgers University, Frank holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. While pondering graduate school, Frank began his career in the financial services industry with The Guardian. He became life and health insurance licensed and passed the Series 7, 63 and 24 securities licensing exams. Before finally shifting his educational focus towards technology, he earned two designations from the American College of Financial Services – Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC). After a period of selling, Frank found his niche in helping other financial services professionals utilize technology to grow their businesses. Soon after, his entrepreneurial spirit took over and he left the industry to fully concentrate his efforts on building a technology consulting firm.

Frank M. DeBenedetto is the President and Chief Technology Advisor of Two River Technology Group, a technology solutions provider located in Holmdel, NJ. After many years of honing his technical skills in the enterprise, he brought his style of consulting to the small to midsize business marketplace. With an emphasis on managed services, managed security and hosted voice over IP (VoIP), Frank has helped grow TRTG into one of the premier cloud service providers in the area. Today, he spends the majority of his professional time on new business development.

Frank has been quoted in many publications and is a regular contributor to several blogs, podcasts and newspapers. He frequently speaks at seminars and webinars on current trends in technology and he’s the author of a book that offers practical advice on technology to the small business owner.

Frank enjoys spending quality time away from technology with his family and close group of friends. He is an avid Rutgers football fan and can be frequently found in Madison Square Garden at a New York Rangers hockey game. In his spare time, Frank enjoys reading Stephen King, playing the guitar, golfing and skiing. Frank currently resides in Middletown, NJ with his daughter, Evangeline.
