VP of Technical Support

As VP of Technical Support, I help shape and drive the partner support experience. I have carved out goals and KPIs that will directly contribute to both the Wingman Experience and Pax8 key business objectives. Striving to deliver a next-level support experience is my goal on a daily basis.

With over 15 years of experience in the MSP industry, I understand how partners operate and the level of support they deliver and expect in return. It is my mission to deliver a level of engagement that will allow our partners to focus on their business and clients.

I have always pushed myself to the extremes. One of my greatest achievements was thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail with my brother. We spent 5 months covering 2,000+ miles. Not all days were easy walking, but I am proud of the accomplishment.

At a previous MSP, I used my industry experience and knowledge to help a company reshape their procurement and selling practice. I was able to build in margins and a refined quoting process. They were previously selling everything at cost. I sold so much hardware and associated services that we were able to go from renting a 400-square-foot office to the owner buying his own office space.

My former hobby was skydiving. I have accomplished more than 600 jumps, but have slowed down since the birth of my son and pending arrival of my second child. Currently, my hobby is rock climbing.

Talk to a Cloud Wingman

Simplified billing, instant provisioning, and 24/7 support is just a fraction of what a Cloud Wingman can do for you.
