Hi Jeff! Can you tell us about your background and how you came to Thrive?
I started as a field engineer at Corporate IT Solutions (CITS) and worked my way up through the company over 15 years to become the CTO and Co-owner. I architected the private Cloud infrastructure at CITS, which allowed us to become a regional leader in the space. Thrive merged with CITS in 2016, and we were able to incorporate a lot of what I built into the Thrive product set. Once at Thrive, I managed the Cloud and senior engineering teams and most recently moved onto the Integration Team to help Thrive integrate newly acquired companies onto the Thrive platform.
