Lonnie R. Hines - President/CEO
Mr. Hines founded LR Hines Consulting in 1996 in order to expand and offer his broad experience and knowledge of document management, records management and computer business systems to the marketplace.
He attended Sacramento State University and took evening classes in Computer Science while in the Air Force.
After nearly six years in the USAF
, Mr. Hines's
interest in sales and energy conservation and alternative energy technologies led him to start an energy conservation company based in Grass Valley, CA.
co-developed an electronic fuel savings device for conventional gas fired furnaces that achieved up to 30% energy savings on older inefficient furnaces.
also wrote software for analyzing building energy loss to help determine return on investment for energy savings technologies.
Before founding LR Hines Consulting, Inc., Mr. Hines was Director of Information Services for a large private corporation that grew from $35 Million to over $100 Million in gross revenue without adding additional staff by using a variety of custom office automation software and implementing new business systems either developed or implemented by Mr. Hines during his tenure there.
After founding LR Hines Consulting, Inc., Mr. Hines obtained his first major multi-year consulting contract with his previous employer to provide Information Technology management services and ongoing systems administration and support.
first Governent client contract was for IT support services with the City of Lincoln, CA, at the time it was the fastest growing City in California.
The City was overflowing with paper and desperately needed a document management system to help them eliminate paper and better manage their important documents.
After recommending and helping implement an EDMS for the City and seeing the benefits of the technology first hand, Mr. Hines
decided to change his
focus away from general IT support and bring his
passion for office automation and business process improvement to the Electronic Document and Content Management market.
During the last few years LR Hines has continued to be successful and has experienced steady growth even in the current tough business climate.
continues to win new clients, including multiple departments in Placer County, most recently being awarded a contract to install SIRE EDMS for the Placer Sheriff's Department.
is a dynamic public speaker and is available for speaking engagements to talk about how technology can truly deliver the promise of doing more with less.
extensive experience provides a rich resource of topics from sucessful projects that have revolutionized how his
clients do business more efficiently and allowed them to continue to meet and exceed required service levels with reduced staffing levels and extreme budget cuts.
Thank you Lonnie
, Jon and staff for the great job!"
