Rita Gurevich is the founder of SPHERE Technology Solutions. Rita went to Stevens Institute of Rothman Rita Gurevich 2015Technology, in Hoboken, where she earned her dual degree in Computer Science and Mathematics. She went on to the financial services industry where she gained extensive experience in architecting, managing and supporting infrastructure systems. Rita then shifted focus and used her business-side knowledge to manage several product lines for software vendors, ensuring that the functionality of these products matched the needs of their customers. Ms. Gurevich started SPHERE Technology Solutions to allow others to leverage her experience from both the customer and vendor side. Gaining a massive amount of experience in quite a short period of time during the Lehman bankruptcy, the economic downturn of 2008 and the enhanced regulatory environment that dominated the industry, Rita was in a unique position to help many other organizations work through these trying times.

She now leads her organization in providing business critical governance, security and compliance solutions to her customers spanning multiple geographic locations and industry verticals. In 2012 Rita was named one of New Jersey’s Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs by NJ Monthly and was a finalist in Hoboken’s Chamber of Commerce inaugural business awards as “Woman in Business”. In June of 2013, Rita was featured in Hoboken’s hMag as one of the “Women to Watch”. In 2014, Rita was featured in the book “Legendary Locals of Hoboken”; received the Hoboken Chamber Award for “Woman in Business” and was named to the “50 Best Women in Business” list by NJBIZ.
