By Intelecis, Special for USDR
As President and CEO of Intelecis, a thriving, proactive and business tech focused Orange County, CA based IT firm, Frans Trisnadi is frequently invited to share his expertise on the crucial topic of cyber security at IT security to large groups of professionals in the escrow, healthcare insurance and financial services industries.
With a powerful and commanding ability to share insights and achieve breakthroughs for fellow entrepreneurs, the multi-faceted speaker, mentor, and philanthropist is also a rising force in personal development and leadership coaching.
Over the past few years, even as he and his team have built Intelecis into one of the region’s most trusted IT companies, Trisnadi has expanded his influence beyond the two industries where he has experienced the majority of his success as an entrepreneur. Before entering the IT world in 2010, he was a prominent property developer, real estate investor and Founder and President of Trisnadi Capital Partners.
One of the key components of his mission and branding as a multi-faceted thought leader, coach and success influencer is his ability to connect with entrepreneurs and CEOs, who, like him, have experienced waves of great economic triumphs and downturns – and emerged from down swings stronger and more determined to succeed than ever.
Trisnadi openly shares his personal comeback story, which includes the hard won wisdom he gained from the dark period of his career between Trisnadi Capital Partners and the founding of Intelecis. At one point, he grew his investment firm from zero to over$40M in assets. And then, due in part to the Great Recession on top of speculative investments in vacation rentals, the bottom fell out – leaving him and his partners with millions of dollars in personal guarantees.
During the years when Trisnadi Capital Partners was growing, Trisnadi recognized the need for more computers, servers and phone systems. He knew they needed to leverage technology to make his team more efficient while he was traveling around the country looking for investment opportunities. But he wasn’t able to find an IT company that offered a flat-rate monthly fee, or one that would act as his IT department and have full accountability for its services. Those firms he hired were more interested in finger-pointing and “putting out fires” than taking a proactive approach that helps avoid breakdowns, smooth business operations and minimize unnecessary costs.
He currently takes an active part and leadership role on the board for Entrepreneur Organization’s Accelerator Program, seeking wise counsel of other successful entrepreneurs as he gives back and shares his wealth of knowledge with them.
“My desire to serve as a mentor and conduct personal and leadership coaching for entrepreneurs is rooted in the fact that many of my successes and failures are tremendous learning experiences,” says Trisnadi, a business graduate of Cal Poly Pomona who launched his career in IT and telecommunications leading business development teams at MCI, Siemens and AT&T. “But those nuts and bolts are just the foundation for my deeper interest in helping people discover a life of purpose and significance.”
Helping his peers and clients envision a bigger picture for themselves, the provocative question he challenges them to explore is: “Now that you’ve done all this, what is your Version 2.0?”
With the initial inspiration and support of his wife Jenny and young sons Jaden and Caleb, Trisnadi recently launched We Care America, a dedicated group of community volunteers and citizens to assist in raising funds, awareness and develop “ready to go” packages for America’s temporary homeless. Trisnadi’s family usually keeps their cars stocked with We Care America Packages. He believes that with the help of corporate sponsors, generous donations by fellow Americans, volunteers and paid staff, We Care America has the potential to impact the homeless across the country.
Trisnadi’s dedication to personal development and leadership training extends to his day-to-day role as head of Intelecis, whose focus is on helping small business owners achieve and maintain technological excellence behind the service they provide to their clients. “In all of my dealings, I love to share with my fellow entrepreneurs and business owners the value of legacy,” he says.
