About Paul Preston

For Paul Preston, President at iCertifi, more is more. He puts in more effort to deliver more value, so clients can’t help but come back for more. As the driving force behind a premiere global regulatory compliance consulting firm, he has learned the ins and outs of compliance certifications so that you don’t have to. Wireless, telecom, and electronics manufacturers can rest easy knowing Paul has assembled and empowered a team of dedicated, driven professionals looking to change the face of the compliance game.

Paul holds a Bachelors of Science from Oregon State University. With over a decade of experience in the regulatory compliance industry, and six years as a company head, he specializes in radio, telecom,  safety and efficiency testing and certification. Paul’s passion for continuing education and reputation for excellence has earned the team at iCertifi recognition on a global level. The company brings a one-of-a-kind approvals experience to manufacturers worldwide.

Though accident prone in his personal life (he’s toured his fair share of surgery centers…), Paul is anything but careless in his professional life. He has a passion for providing exceptional client service. Known for his honesty, he’ll always tell the truth as he sees it. Whether he’s working with global industry leaders, or small businesses looking to get their foot in the door, he brings the same level of attention and care to each interaction.

When he’s not in the office, Paul enjoys taking his life into his own hands on the mountain biking trails. Like any good Oregonian, he’s a fan of microbrews and college football (Go Beavers!). With six daughters and one loving wife, he has a whole home team of his own. Together they inspire and support his professional endeavors.

Do you have any hidden talents?

Hurting myself at every sport I have tried to play.

What is your proudest achievement?

Having and surviving 6 beautiful daughters.

If you could live anywhere, where would that be?

Sunriver, Oregon in the summer and Aruba in the winter.

First Concert you went to:

Bon Jovi with Poison as the opening act.

Favorite Movie Quote?

“Put. That coffee. Down. Coffee’s for closers only.” -Glengarry Glen Ross

What does iCertifi mean to you?

The best customer service in the industry. iCertifi is a group of amazing people who come together wanting to shift a paradigm of what to expect in an industry that usually is very impersonal. iCertifi means having the best colleagues and friends sitting next to me everyday!

About Brent Clifford

Brent Clifford, Business Development Specialist extraordinaire, understands that in a rapidly-evolving world, growth is the greatest marker of success. That’s why, in both life and business, he’s here to go big or go home. With a keen eye for opportunity, he joined the team to stay at the forefront of the industry. He thrives in this fast-paced environment where he gets to witness the positive impact of his work not just on individuals’ lives and businesses, but on the global economy.

In an effort to thwart the imminent robot uprising, Brent strives to bring a personal touch to each of his business endeavors. For him, clients aren’t just another sales pitch; they’re part of the family. He’s here to demystify the certifications process however he can. Tenacious, independent, and driven (with a fondness for local beers), Brent lives up to his reputation as the team’s honey badger.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be? Cape or no cape?

It is a toss-up between flying and super healing. I guess I would take the super healing because you could always just jump off of high stuff and survive. I would totally wear the cape and probably a primary color spandex suit. If you’re going there, you might as well go all the way.

If you could live anywhere, where would that be?

Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii. Just google a few pics of the surroundings and the surf. Can’t think of a better place. Paradise on earth.

If you could ask your future self one question, what would it be?

When did the robot overlords take over and how do I get this WiFi router out of my head?

What does iCertifi mean to you?

It means that we have grown into a global force in the homologation industry. We provide the best customer service, pricing, and communication in an industry that is increasingly becoming more impersonal and confusing. It means that we occupy the same space as the bigger agencies and labs, yet provide a better customer experience, which has manufacturers coming back.

About Connie Biggs

As an international Senior Project Manager, Connie Biggs has discovered the perfect balance between personal and professional passion in her work at iCertifi. She enjoys enriching the lives of others through careful attention to detail, and takes great pride in offering a superior customer service experience. The only thing she’s missing is the ability to teleport, so she could help her clients face-to-face… The only thing that matches Connie’s versatility is her passion for her team. With shared values and dedication to excellence, the office feels more like home than work.

Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Connie brings a unique perspective and expertise to the iCertifi family.  She believes all of her previous experiences have led her to this perfect time and place, and has made it her mission to stay on the cutting edge of a rapidly-changing industry. Outside the office, Connie embraces the beauty in the everyday, taking pleasure in the simple things: a walk on the beach, a family meal, a relaxing staycation. She understands that we only have the time we’re given, and is determined to use it well!

Favorite Movie Quote?

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” – Lord of the Rings

What is your proudest achievement?

Leaving everything behind to start over in a new country and adapting and succeeding in just a few years.

Ultimate guilty pleasure?

Fatty foods. Anything fried with melted cheese; and creamy, decadent ice-cream or cake.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be? Cape or no cape?

That’s easy: teleportation and no cape. The world is a wonderful place and being able to go everywhere, whenever I feel like it would be amazing. It probably wouldn’t work very well for superhero purposes, though. But it would certainly be extremely helpful to micromanage all certifications!

If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be? And why?

Nothing. Everything I have lived, said and done made me what I am today and brought me where I am today. And I wouldn’t change my present for anything.

What does iCertifi mean to you?

It means comfort and certainty, like a second home. It is not just a company to work at. It is a place where I can grow and feel I belong to, where we all share the same values and dedication and have a common goal of achieving great things together for our clients.

If you could ask your future self one question, what would it be?

Have I made a positive difference in the world? (Besides advocating for Bacon Bloody Mary’s as being essential for mental health? Well, bacon in general!!)

What does iCertifi mean to you?

iCertifi means that I get to be part of a growing, thriving company that continues to expand its circle of influence; continues to push boundaries; and continues to strive for excellence in the services that it provides to its customers. I get to work with people that are real, and committed to making iCertifi successful. It means that I get to do what I love! (and that includes seeing Paul run when he sees me coming LOL!)

About Jennifer Preston

Jennifer Preston subscribes to one philosophy in both her personal and professional life: it is our duty to help one another. As a labor and delivery nurse for 20 years, she honed her ability to think on her feet and act with compassion. She now brings that same degree of calm, cool, collected caring to the team at iCertifi. Without a competitive bone in her body, Jennifer knows the name of the game is “cooperation.” Driven by a genuine desire to help her team succeed, she puts in the legwork to ensure everybody is operating at his/her full potential.

Outside the office, she’s busy wrangling her and Paul’s six daughters. She finds the best way to keep everybody occupied is to turn them loose; together they enjoy exploring local hiking and biking trails, or spending time on the rivers. She can also be found unwinding in her garden, where her green thumb keeps veggies on the dinner table.

If you could be any animal, what would it be?

If I could be any animal I would be a cat… I could sleep all day.

First concert was Debbie Gibson.

Originally from San Diego, she enjoys every opportunity she gets to travel with her children.

Favorite Movie Quote?

“I’m your huckleberry.” – Tombstone

If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?

A peregrine falcon; I would love to have excellent vision for once in my life, and not just regular flight skills, but super fast flight. Plus, the peregrine falcon can be found almost anywhere on Earth, which makes it highly adaptable to almost any environment.

What are the last three songs you listened to?

Sound of Silence: Disturbed version; Uprising: Muse; The Wall: Pink Floyd

What is the first concert you went to?

Sha-Na-Na and Men at Work at Sea World with my parents when I was probably 8; Violent Femmes when I was 12, with my sister and no parents.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?

Teleportation. That way, I could travel around the world with my children and not have to pay exorbitant air travel costs.

Cape or no cape?

No cape necessary. Just three clicks of my heels.

Favorite movie?

Wizard of Oz

What does iCertifi mean to you?

Working at iCertifi means I am on a team who wants to make the effort to communicate with people instead of making them a number in a list. It means I am valued for what I bring to the organization and we recognize that our different personalities can make our team stronger and more cohesive.
