Yorktel Acquires Microsoft Solutions Practice, Enhancing Existing Practice Capabilities
Yorktel, CI’s 2015 Integrator of the Year, today announced it has acquired a Microsoft Solutions practice and the appointment of Jeremy Short as senior VP to lead the new division.
The practice’s continued focus will be “delivering the Microsoft Modern Workplace to clients as a One Commercial Partner, along with innovative solutions development and managed services,” according to the press release.
“The acquisition is another key milestone in Yorktel’s ongoing expansion and growth, further solidifying the company’s position as a valued, sole-source multi-vendor strategic technology partner that delivers the latest in collaboration solutions and managed services to enterprise, government and healthcare organizations,” according to the announcement.
“The rising need for organizations to invest in digital transformation in order to stay competitive, create operational efficiencies and optimize the workforce has created the demand for fewer, but more capable, technology partners,” according to the Yorktel press release.
“This demand is the catalyst for the expansion of the Yorktel Microsoft Solutions practice.”
Their team “has a deep knowledge base of Microsoft’s enterprise ecosystem,” according to the announcement. The company now has seven Gold Competencies, three Silver Competencies, is a tier-1 direct Cloud Service Provider (CSP) and a Managed Surface Devices reseller.
Yorktel Relationship with Microsoft
Yorktel’s expertise encompasses all forms of Microsoft cloud and on-premise communication, collaboration and productivity tools such as Teams, Skype, Office365, Windows AutoPilot, Enterprise Mobility + Security, the full Surface device family and complete managed services across the ecosystem.
A future company roadmap includes developing cloud software products and applications with technologies related to Azure Cognitive Services, AI, AR, big data and IoT. This builds on the launch of purpose-built TeleHealth product, Univago HE.
“We are very excited to expand our Microsoft practice, and very fortunate to do so with such a highly capable and experienced leadership team at the helm,” said CEO Ron Gaboury in the announcement.
Short will be “working closely” with Yorktel’s recently appointed CRO, Ken Scaturro, and COO Mike Brandofino “to globally execute our Microsoft Solutions business plan,” said Gaboury.
“Jeremy and his team are well-respected in the industry bringing digital transformation talent across multiple disciplines within the technology sector,” said Gaboury.
“His deep and diverse technical background and experience as a technology visionary make him a huge asset to the Yorktel team as we continue to grow our service offering.”
As part of this expansion, Yorktel has tapped Shaun Olsen to join the Microsoft Solutions practice as VP. Prior to joining Yorktel, Olsen was an executive at Arrow Electronics, where he led the Microsoft Solutions practice and was responsible for the cloud, data center and platforms strategy in the systems integration division.
“We are thrilled to have Jeremy and Shaun join the team to help expand the Microsoft Solutions practice,” said Scaturro in the announcement. “They are both highly respected IT executives and strategists with a proven track record of starting, scaling, and managing IT software development, infrastructure, professional and managed services organizations.
“Jeremy and Shaun bring the right combination of deep knowledge, diversity of experience and strategic thinking that will help enable Yorktel to achieve our growth objectives, with a focus on building on our success as an innovative service provider to our clients,” he said.
