IT Infrastructure and Operations Firm Looks to the Future with Veteran at Helm
TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2017 /CNW/ - Coreio Inc. is pleased to announce that IT Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) expert, Chris Vasquez, has been appointed Vice President of Advisory Services. In this capacity, he succeeds the retiring Wayne Balardo. Moving into this role from his prior one as Hosting and Cloud Practice Executive, Chris will continue driving business development and evaluating all potential engagements. Additionally, he will be responsible for managing the day to day activities of the Advisory Services practice, including support of ongoing client activities.
Chris brings more than 30 years of experience in the management of Enterprise IT Operations, including delivery of large scale data centre and Cloud initiatives. His most recent role prior to joining Coreio last year was Vice President of Operations at TD Bank Group (TD), leading a large team tasked with upgrading and streamlining TD's 24/7 IT enterprise systems across a number of business units and geographies. As part of that role, Chris was accountable for consistent operational discipline across the global technology organization, as well as simplification, automation, modernization and risk reduction in an inherently complex environment. Prior to TD, Chris built a long career at Fidelity Information Systems in the United States, eventually rising to the position of Senior Vice President. In that role, he oversaw all strategic technology centres and related command centre functions and was responsible for critical facilities infrastructure, systems administration and data centre power and floor space engineering.
"Under Wayne Balardo's leadership and guidance, the Coreio Advisory Services practice has earned a stellar reputation for expertise in the development and implementation of I&O strategies with concrete outputs, and for deep experience in complex technology projects and data centre migrations," said David Naiman, President and CEO of Coreio, "As long time collaborators, we know that Chris and Wayne share the values and priorities that ground our practice in the development of actionable insights, real world solutions and successful service delivery. Our clients can look forward to Coreio continuing and growing on that foundation under Chris' leadership. The future of the practice is an exciting one."
Chris' vision for Coreio's Advisory Services business continues the mission he brought to his prior Practice Executive mandate: to build a flexible, scalable and reliable service for our clients that can meet ever-changing business and technology needs. "I'm excited to lead Coreio's Advisory Services practice, which our clients rely on to go beyond traditional advisory functions, and instead truly partner with them to build innovative technology solutions," said Chris. "Our clients continue to engage and recommend us to achieve their business, technology and innovation objectives based on our proven track record of successful delivery."
