Rance Blair has worked in the IT industry for 40 years. The first 17 years were spent honing his skill set in very specialized / high profile positions. He joined IBM in 1995 after moving to Florida. Rance left IBM in 1998 and started Solution ArchiTECHS, Inc., an IT consulting and services firm. Mr. Blair has been the CEO and principal consultant since founding the company. Rance has been involved in a variety of customer projects such as strategic planning, team building, leadership mentoring, business continuity and managing high profile projects. Rance’s goal in each project is to help develop and train staff (skills transfer) as well as helping the organization become more effective.
Rance has also been very active in the churches he has attended. He was on an intercessory prayer team for 14 years and led the team for 7 of those years. Rance is also a big fan of small groups, especially groups centered on discipleship and biblical principles. He has led different small groups on leadership and men’s groups (Wild at Heart). Rance also assumed leadership for the setup and tear down teams for 5 years while the church he was attending was portable. His skills in leadership, logistics, process improvement and especially setting the vision for that ministry helped turn it from drudge work and a “have to” ministry to an engaging, precision operation that became a “get to” ministry. Having invited Jesus into his life at 45 years old has been the change that Rance was looking for in his life. Ever since entering the workforce at 12, Rance has always believed that people were an organizations most valuable asset. After starting his relationship with Jesus, he gets to live that belief out, every day, in every aspect of his life, with a heavenly perspective centered on God’s love for people. A good portion of Rance’s personnel ministry is befriending and mentoring hurting men in a one on one setting for long periods of time. Rance has a passion for helping people into a place of healing and restoration so that they may have an abundant and fulfilling life!
