How does this work?

I believe in the power of people and technology. I've spent 15+ years providing IT solutions to businesses to be more operational efficient and accelerate their business. Technology should not be a burden or cost center to a business but a highly contributing business unit to products and services. Focus Areas for IT Services and Solutions: - Traditional compute, networking, and storage - High Performance Compute (HPC) and AI/ML workflows - Data Protection and IT Resilience: Backup, Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity - Cybersecurity: Firewall, Ransomware protection, IAM, Encryption, etc. - Cloud Solutions for AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud - Fractional CIO and IT Leadership - IT Administration Services - Data Center hosting services Client Accomplishment Highlights: - Fortune 250 Pharma: Backup modernization saving 35% in 3 years, improved service levels, and targeting AWS cloud - Boston Pharma: Centralized and automated instrumentation data workflow including primary storage, HPC, and backup - VC Backed Pharma: Automated and improved data protection of computational Chemistry and computational Biology workflows - Private Biotech Firm: Data protection modernization improving SLAs of data storage and backup from on-premise to Microsoft Azure - Academic Research University: Data protection modernization to handle PBs of research data from on-premise to Microsoft Azure - MA Based Pharma: Increased IT Resilience, protection from ransomware, and application uptime - Chicago Hedge Fund: Meeting data protection compliance requirements leveraging AWS - Chicago Investment Management Co: Increase IT Resilience for improved application uptime, availability and security - Kentucky Healthcare Organization: Modernize both data protection and data recovery services enterprise wide In this experience in selling B2B, leading sales teams, and being a part of high growth companies, I uncovered a passion for strong leadership, teamwork, collaboration, and corporate culture which lead me to cofound a company to help people work better together.
