Behind the Screens- Meet Maniver

Meet Maniver! She is one of CIO Solutions’ awesome client success managers (CSMs). She moved to the United States from India in 2008. A member of the CIO Solutions team for the past 4 years, her home base is our Fresno office. She guides her clients (in both the SLO and Fresno regions) to success by developing close relationships with them and ensuring that they have the right resources and guidance to thrive.

As a client success manager, she helps clients understand their agreements, navigate which products to invest in to achieve their goals, and helps them get the most out of their relationship with CIO. She works dynamically with the vCIOs (virtual CIOs, a.k.a. technology strategists) assigned to her clients’ accounts. These strategic roles pair together to ensure that our clients have the right expectations, technology design, and services to work productively. In this role, Maniver helps manage our clients’ experience with our services and their technology to keep them moving toward their goals.

When she’s not helping clients, Maniver adores reading classic novels. Ask what her favorite book is, and her answer will be “Brave New World”! She has big travel plans in her future, with Morocco, London and Prague making her bucket list under “top iconic places to visit”!
