In the new role, Morgano oversees American Textile Company’s worldwide investment in technology, advancing the company’s information technology strategy to complement its growth. He brings a proven track record of strategic IT leadership, with significant achievements leveraging technology to create business value. Morgano will report to American Textile President and CEO Lance Ruttenberg.

Morgano comes to American Textile Company from CIO Ventures, where he consulted with local technology incubators and venture capital firms, in addition to advising start-ups in various industries including cybersecurity, transportation, legal, and social media. Prior to partnering with the start-up community, Morgano led IT at EQT Corporation and consulted for Fortune 1000 clients at Andersen and Protiviti.
