Welcome back to another installment of our “Thrive Spotlight” blog series.

Our featured employee is David Bloomer, Director, Technical Advisory Service – New York Financial Services.  In his position, he leads a team of Virtual Chief Information Officers who provide services to our clients.  He also works directly with clients to provide strategic advisory guidance, technology business reviews, and technology executive leadership. In addition, David works closely with the Thrive Advisory Services leadership team to shape and improve our Advisory Services practice.

He lives just outside of New York City in Union County, New Jersey and works out of our Mid-Town NYC office.  David has been married to his wife for 17 years and they have three children, ages 7,10, and 12, and one dog named Charlie.  They love sports and all his children are on competitive swim teams, so outside of work he spends a lot of time at swim meets.

Hi David!  Can you tell us about your background and how you came to Thrive? 

I have always been interested in technology and knew from an early age that I wanted to work in that field.  I started working for Precision IT, a small MSP in New York City shortly after graduating from college.  Starting at a smaller company provided me with an opportunity to learn about multiple roles within a company and I was able to develop my technology and business skills quickly.  I also quickly learned the importance of mentorship within my career.  I have been working as a Technology Consultant in New York City for nearly 20 years and have held many roles in engineering, networking, solution design, IT service management, account management, project management, security, and executive functions.  Thrive acquired Precision IT 6 years ago and I have continued with the company since the acquisition.

Where did you go to school or get training? 

I got a Bachelor of Science degree with a focus on Computer Information Systems from Roger Williams University.  After college, I continued technology training, earning multiple certifications. One of the highlights in my college career was having the opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy for a semester. I love history and it was great spending an entire semester learning about the Italian Renaissance.

What do you most enjoy about working for Thrive? 

I enjoy the people I get to work with and the clients I get to help. I have worked with some of my coworkers and clients for nearly 20 years and have built great relationships with them.  It is great getting to meet our clients and learn more about their company. I also enjoy following and learning about the latest technology and technology trends.

Are there any recent exciting projects at Thrive you can tell us about? 

Throughout the last year, I have worked on several challenging and successful projects.  I have helped clients improve their security, upgrading their remote access solution, implementing a new support model, office expansion and relocation projects, and Cloud upgrade and migration projects.
