Director of Operations/
Cindy Brio joined Surface 9 in the Fall of 2018 as our new Director of Operations. Some say, she has special skills as a ringmaster, and we agree.
While overseeing day-to-day operations, Cindy develops and initiates new policies and procedures to keep us in step with industry changes. She is as creative as she is detail oriented, and as such, she manages a multitude of client projects with that special “grace under fire, throw me whatcha got” kind of attitude. Though her desk is piled high with virtual stacks of files and requests, her robust laughter reminds us that work can be fun.
Generally regarded as a rock star in the area of building strong client relationships, super friendly Cindy is equally comfortable hiding in the back office, crunching through plans and throwing out proposals. When not slinging numbers, wrangling projects, and generally holding down the fort, Cindy enjoys facing her fears of the stage as an actress and improviser in Austin’s local theatre scene. Her love of coffee is shadowed only by her love of family and other human beings. Call sometime- she’ll meet you for coffee and she takes it black!
