Paul Arrington brings over 20 years of technical and IT operations experience to his role as Chief Operating Officer at TBConsulting. His vast array of knowledge and experience comes from IT leadership roles across multiple industries and environments. He is uniquely situated to understand both sides of the equation, as in prior roles, he retained the services of an MSP, and now he provides those services to clients. This allows him to anticipate and meet customer needs as they work to transform and grow. Paul is not a fan of tech for tech's sake and believes the best part of his job is problem-solving through technology to drive progress for his clients.
Paul is passionate about training - technology moves faster than ever before - thus, learning new skills and staying sharp are the only ways to stay ahead of the constant advances.

Joan Carter has deep knowledge and expertise in the managed services space. As Director of Service Delivery, her span of control encompasses all of TBC’s solutions areas: Business Continuity, Infrastructure, ITSM, Network, Security, and Unified Communications. Joan’s prior positions with a variety of organizations and for the Department of Defense, have provided her with a broad engineering knowledge base in systems, network, and security.
She joined the TBC team in February of 2022 and considers the best part of her job to be the exciting challenge of helping to move the company forward through continual innovation and a focus on growth.
Joan holds both a Bachelor of Science degree and an MBA, both with a concentration in Information Technology. She is a native of Palo Alto, California—where the propensity for technology and engineering may be in the water! In addition, she has had the opportunity to live abroad, in Germany and Japan. These stints may have contributed to making her an avid traveler. Joan’s favorite destination, so far, was the port city of Kusadasi in Turkey. And still on her travel ‘bucket list’ is Norway, the land of her ancestors.
Joan is married with two children and has three adorable grandchildren. When she is not ensuring that TBC clients have an exceptional service delivery experience, you can find her outdoors enjoying the Arizona weather and landscape—indulging in her favorite sports—hiking and kayaking.
Charles Montgomery, IV (or C4 for short!), did not follow the traditional educational path. As the son of a network engineer, he was interested in technology at a young age. Charles received his first Microsoft certification at age 13 and his first Cisco certification at age 16 and hasn’t stopped learning and innovating since! He continues to add to his impressive collection of network, systems, and security certifications with his latest being in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe).
Charles had an entrepreneurial spirit as a teen, founding his first tech business, Starving Geeks, when he was just 16. He followed that with stints in help desk positions and finally in network engineering. Charles focused his engineering efforts in the managed services space for CenturyLink, before coming to TBC in 2019 as an Client Delivery Architect.
Earlier in 2022, Charles was tapped to lead the new DevOps team and take on the role of Director of Technology. Charles is in the enviable position of having created a rewarding career doing what he loves the most—solving problems in the technical and design space. This new technical/strategic role at TBC provides endless opportunities to innovate and overcome challenges. Charles believes that having such a strong technical team behind him makes the execution of solutions feel almost magical!
Charles is a native of Arizona, with a soft spot for Colorado, having spent 10 years there. He shares his life with his wife Stormie and their teenage daughter. When Charles is not immersed in the tech challenge of the day, you will find him pursuing one of his many hobbies. He is passionate about DIY electronics—like raspberry pis, 3D printing, CNC machines and tiny robots, to name a few—and cars! Charles has always had a passion for rebuilding cars—his current projects include a Porsche 944 and a Jeep Cherokee. He’s even a member of a local off-roading club and wants to convince some TBC colleagues to come join him in the fun!
Troy Bodrero has 35 years of experience in the technology sector. In that time, Troy has served in a variety of roles. They all have one thing in common—to bring the latest innovative solutions to the client to ease the IT burden for their organization. Troy began his study of IT at Utah State University. Since then, he has earned several certifications, including a Management Certificate from Harvard University. In his current role as Senior Manager, Operations Excellence, Troy feels lucky and honored to be leading this team—they are smart, dedicated, and client-focused—in short, they make him look good every day!
Troy is a native of Utah and has lived off and on in Arizona for over 30 years. He is the proud father of 6 children and the grandfather of 7 as well—he loves his family just the way it is—at least for the moment, until another little one arrives!
When not bringing top-tier IT solutions to TBC’s clients, you can find Troy enjoying his favorite pastimes, acting as king of the grill and watching football. He is a devoted fan of the Los Angeles Rams and the Aggies of Utah State. The pros are great, but the raw emotion of college football really speaks to him.
Although Troy loves living in Arizona, travel beckons too. His all-time favorite trip was to Amsterdam and the dream trip of the future is a safari in Africa.
