(Cincinnati, OH) January 27th, 2016 –RoundTower Technologies, Inc. announced that they are expanding into three new cities: Pittsburgh, PA; Columbus, OH; and Atlanta, GA. These locations were determined based on market demand and availability of qualified resources. “We plan to bring the same customer-first, business oriented approach to these territories that has made us successful in so many others,” says VP of Business Development, Andy Stein. “We are continually hiring industry veterans and subject matter experts in key disciplines like data center infrastructure, converged platforms, cloud automation and orchestration, DevOps and data analytics. Their experience and refined skill sets in these and other transformative IT strategies are what produce optimum business outcomes for our client-partners.”
The nationally recognized systems integrator has had a 170% revenue increase over the last two years, garnering their acclaim as a rising star in the IT industry. Judging from their expansion into these new markets, the company appears to be headed for another record year. Here are details about the individual locations:
Pittsburgh, PA is the second-largest city in Pennsylvania, with a population of over 300,000, and it is the seat of Allegheny County. “The Steel City” contributes to such sectors as shipbuilding, petroleum, transportation, computing, and the automotive industries. Google, Bosch, Disney, Intel, and IBM are among 1,600 technology firms generating $20.7 billion in annual Pittsburgh payrolls. “I am confident that RoundTower’s proven ability to design and deliver technical solutions will enable our success as we go forward in this market,” says Steve Guest, RoundTower lead for the Pittsburgh area. Mr. Guest holds a BA in Management from St. Bonaventure University. He brings 15 years of experience from industry lynchpin EMC, where he served as an Enterprise District Manager and National Account Manager.
Columbus, OH is the capital of Ohio and its largest city, with a population of over 800,000. It has a diverse economy based in part on education, government, insurance, banking and aviation. Fortune 500 companies such as Nationwide Mutual Insurance, American Electric Power, L Brands, and Cardinal Health are prominent in the region. “RoundTower’s capability in cloud transformation, DevOps, and predictive analytics is going to fill a significant gap in the area,” observes Andy Stein, RoundTower lead in Columbus. Mr. Stein brings 30+ years of experience in the industry, with sales leadership roles at EMC, GE Capital, SunGard, and COMDISCO.
Atlanta, GA is the capital and most populous city of Georgia, with an estimated population of 440,000. It is also the seat of Fulton County. Atlanta has the country's third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies (18), and is the global headquarters of corporations such as Coca-Cola, Home Depot, Delta Air Lines, AT&T Mobility, and UPS. “The area expects more than a billion dollars in technology investments over the next three to five years,” says Jacques Davignon, RoundTower’s Atlanta lead. “What better place to increase our positive influence.” Mr. Davignon received an MBA from Emory and has consulted to some of the country’s largest companies, including AT&T, EMC, Cisco, RSA and VMware.
