A New-Look Senior Leadership Team
Following the untimely death of founder Michael Locher last year, EI restructured its leadership team with Michael’s son, Matt Bach, taking on the role of President alongside former CIO/CTO Tracey Brown, who was promoted to Chief Executive Officer, having spent 17 years with the company in a variety of roles.
The duo will be responsible for leading the business into its new era, where they will be supported by the rest of the senior leadership team, Devin Phillips, as Chief Information Officer and Chris James as Director of Sales and Partnerships.
Devin and Chris are new additions to the EI family, bringing with them a host of experience in IT service provision, having joined from Marketing agency Sgsco and Roundtower Technologies respectively.
Service Expansion Through Exciting New Partnerships
Central to EI’s continued evolution has been the development and implementation of strategic technology partnerships with some of the most respected companies in the world. These partnerships have enabled it to respond to new trends and emerging technologies to stay at the forefront of the technology industry, while providing industry-leading solutions to a selection of complex IT issues.
Due to the nature of the IT industry, there is always potential for growth in different markets as new services and innovative technologies become available in those business arenas.
One such growth area is endpoint security services, where EI has announced a new partnership with experts, SentinelOne, Tanium, and Crowdstrike, who will enable EI to expand its offering to support companies that are conducting more business digitally, or are at greater risk of cyber attack.
A new partnership with cloud storage and processing experts, Nutanix, meanwhile, will further enable EI to help businesses dramatically simplify and unify their IT operations while allowing them to focus more on business-critical initiatives.
Teaming with cloud data management and enterprise backup specialists, Rubrik, helps EI provide advanced solutions for today’s data control challenges through ransomware recovery, database protection, cloud protection, and more.
With the added importance of using your own data to effectively drive modern business, EI’s partnership with Pure Storage gives its customers valuable expertise and powerful insight into their own data that can be used to quicken innovation and boost business performance.
Additionally, partnering with Dell and Cisco gives EI the ability to offer its customers a vast array of technological solutions through an unmatched selection of hardware.
Along with EI’s own Digital Robotics Engine, a partnership with automation gurus, RedHat, gives EI the ability to help organizations optimize the performance of their networks and applications, and enable them to reach the full potential of their IT investments.
Finally, through a partnership with Cohesity, EI can help its customers enhance their data intelligence by simplifying the way they protect, control, and extract value from their data.
A time to reflect, re-align and refocus
As the world comes out of the COVID-19 pandemic over the coming months, the way in which businesses operate is likely to change forever.
The last year has been a turbulent time for everyone, not least for business, but as we begin to see signs of recovery, EI is ready to face these challenges head on and is now better placed than ever to walk confidently into an exciting new future.
