Avis Yates Rivers is the President and CEO of Technology Concepts Group International, LLC. (TCGi), a global asset, expense and procurement management firm.  She possesses more than 35 years of general management experience in the information technology industry and has been a successful tech entrepreneur for over 30 years.

Prior to establishing her first company in 1985, Ms. Yates Rivers enjoyed an 11-year career at Exxon Corporation. When Exxon sold the Office Systems Division, Avis decided to branch out on her own, which led to the founding of her first company. With its innovative supply chain solutions, TCGi specializes in reducing the cost of IT Asset, Procurement and Tail Spend Management.

A strong believer in the late Shirley Chisholm’s ideal that “service is the rent you pay for the privilege of living on this earth,” Avis subscribes to both the principles and the practice of being ‘in service.’ She is a long-time advocate for the increased participation of girls, women and people of color in technology, and has served in many leadership positions for national non-profit organizations over the years. 

She is a nationally recognized thought-leader and in-demand global speaker. Her first book, ‘Necessary Inclusion,’ was released in January 2017.  For more information, please visit www.avisyatesrivers.com.
