"We are thrilled to bring such an experienced sales leader in both Microsoft products and the channel to Opsgility," said Michael Washam, CEO of Opsgility. "We partner hand-in-hand with Microsoft to enable some of their largest customers to deploy to the cloud.

"Not only am I impressed about the growth this company has had but excited about the potential it holds and what I can do to help this incredible team. The offerings from Opsgility are perfectly timed for all maturity levels of companies large and small alike. We can assist from evaluating the cloud all the way to getting a customer's team comfortable to run in the modern PaaS and SaaS world. We are already working with some of the largest companies in the world. Not only can we do this for enterprises, but for the system integrators that support them on a similar breadth, from getting them ready for the modern world of work to helping to align their value proposition in their market.

I could not be happier about joining this extremely talented company!"
