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."
