Like all good strategy, the best cloud strategy is one that is regularly re-visited, re-evaluated, and re-calibrated for continuous optimization. That theory was battle-tested in 2020, with the colossal disruption caused by a global pandemic. IT budgets were already shifting to cloud spend with high expectations to drive revenue and push innovation, and they’ll continue to do so.
In response to the increasingly complex changes ahead for IT departments, Expedient is continuing to up the ante. Now more than ever, when 37% of companies cite a lack of “cloud platform expertise” as a barrier to innovation*, Expedient aims to act as a trusted advisor to clients accelerating their digital transformation.
To guide our clients and help them achieve their digital transformation vision, we are pleased to announce the hiring of Michael Fulton, Vice President of Product Strategy & Innovation, and Tim Kounadis, Vice President of Marketing.
Both are industry veterans who bring a vast expanse of knowledge and experience from both sides of the client-provider fence. Fulton will be advancing Expedient’s solution offerings and evaluating cutting edge technologies to provide comprehensive options for our clients, with an initial focus on multi-cloud management. He brings over 25 years of client-side experience, first with Procter & Gamble as their Lead Cloud Architect, among other roles, and most recently as Associate Vice President, Technology Strategy & Innovation at Nationwide, where he advised senior management on innovation, emerging technologies, strategic planning, and activation approaches.
Kounadis, a cloud marketing veteran with recent stints at AWS, IBM Cloud, and other world-class high-tech companies will lead initiatives to extend the Expedient brand and value to enterprises from coast to coast.
The best strategies are ones that are continually evolving. They balance expertise, fresh ideas, and an unrelenting push for improvement. With our new executive hires, we continue to advance the nation’s leading enterprise cloud platform and deliver uncompromising value to the clients who place their trust in us each day.
