New offices, point of presence and the appointment of Darwin Funk as
Regional VP, Sales & Operations will spearhead FlexITy operations to
meet unique needs of Western Canada for a broad range of Unified
Communications, Collaboration, Managed Services and Data Centre
RICHMOND HILL, ON, Dec. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - FlexITy Solutions Inc., an award winning provider of Unified Communications, Data Centre
Technologies, Cloud and Managed Services, today announced their
expansion into Western Canada. To spearhead this effort, they have
appointed industry veteran, Darwin Funk to the newly created role of
Regional Vice President Sales & Operations.
"Recent strategic wins in the west have reinforced our decision to add
more facilities, people and network resources to manage our growth,"
said Peter Stavropoulos, CEO and President, FlexITy. "We are delighted to appoint Darwin to our senior leadership team to
drive these initiatives forward. Darwin brings a high degree of
business acumen and customer focus which will further our efforts as we
build on the momentum we are seeing."
From new offices located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, FlexITy will also be hiring a team of seasoned experts to deliver the
innovation and deep technical skills that has fueled FlexITy's rapid growth and contributed to their awards and recognition for
market leadership and customer satisfaction. The network expansion will
include a new western POP (point of presence) featuring a
state-of-the-art environment using leading solutions from FlexITy technology partners such as Cisco, NetApp, EMC, Hitachi and VMWare
enabling best-of-breed collaboration and cloud solutions for clients.
"Western Canadian organizations are unique in that they need to provide
high quality enterprise applications across urban centers, rugged
geographies and remote offices," added Stavropoulos. "Too often they
face challenges that include affordability, reliability and
availability not experienced by businesses in other parts of the world.
For western-based enterprises relying on the operational efficiencies
promised by global trends such as Unified Communications and
Collaboration, there have been few options. Unless you are architecting
and supporting solutions specifically designed for western Canada you
just don't get how difficult it can be."
The new regional VP's responsibilities at FlexITy will include operations, sales and customer service across the entire
western region delivering industry specific client solutions based on a
broad portfolio of leading technology vendors and FlexITy solution sets.
FlexITy is committed to helping their western Canadian clients reap the
benefits of these solutions by providing affordable, reliable
alternatives and deep understanding of how to connect and integrate
across all platforms to simplify the opportunity to talk, conference,
chat, meet and share information.
