BOSTON, Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud Technology Partners™, the leader in transforming businesses with cloud solutions, today announced the appointment of Francesco Paola to the newly created position of Vice President, in charge of Service Delivery in the New York Region. A highly respected and trusted industry veteran with deep ties across New York and the tri-state area, Paola will be responsible for overseeing Cloud Technology Partners' delivery of consulting services, with a strategic focus on supporting, developing and extending the company's rapidly growing vertical offerings.
"I had the good fortune of working with Francesco during his tenure at Cambridge Technology Partners (CTP), and then again more recently during his tenure with Cloudscaling – a key strategic partner for Cloud Technology Partners, while our two companies were jointly engaged with Korea Telecom (KT). Consequently, I have been able to witness firsthand the level of professionalism and relentless dedication to client satisfaction he brings to each and every engagement," said Chris Greendale, Founder and CEO of Cloud Technology Partners. "His unique perspective and experience in not only services delivery, but in cloud and the financial services and telecommunications industries specifically, will be critical as we continue to build-out these vertical practices – areas that have already proven to be exponential growth opportunities for our company."
"With a well-established and enviable track record of success over the past two years since its founding, Cloud Technology Partners offers a progressive and entrepreneurial environment built on a foundation of leadership, innovation and strict adherence to identifying and perfecting industry best practices," said Paola. "I am indeed delighted with the opportunity to again work with Chris and the rest of the Cloud Technology Partners' team, as well as to join and contribute to the company at such an important time in its evolution and growth."
Prior to joining Cloud Technology Partners, Paola served as Vice President of Client Services at Cloudscaling, the leading elastic infrastructure cloud software and systems company delivering on-premise, production-grade, OpenStack-powered solutions, where he played a key role in the build-out and consequent leadership of the client services organization, and was responsible for key infrastructure as a service (IaaS) public and private cloud deployments for global service providers.
Before Cloudscaling, Paola provided strategic services to startups in emerging growth industries such as renewable energy and cloud computing. Before that, he held executive management positions with a number of fast growing innovators, including IronRidge, WNS Global Services, Trinity Partners BPO, LabMorgan (JPMorgan Chase), Scient and Cambridge Technology Partners.
