HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Jan 10, 2017) - Top-ranking national IT services provider Computex Technology Solutions has appointed IT channel leader Frank Vitagliano as the firm's new President and CEO. Vitagliano takes the reins from Computex Co-Founder Jason Haffar, who is retiring as CEO to join the firm's Board of Directors and serve as a strategic advisor to the executive leadership team.
"This is a defining day in Computex's 30-year history, marking a move that will elevate the customer experience Computex delivers, accelerate our growth initiatives and strengthen the business relationships we have today and will pursue in the future," said Co-Founder and Chairman Sam Haffar. "Frank is a stand-out executive whose leadership, experience and expertise are widely recognized, often replicated, but never duplicated. Jason and I are excited and equally honored to have him take Computex to a new level of excellence and inspire our team to achieve even greater success."
Vitagliano's working relationship with Computex began 15 years ago, with IBM, and has followed his well-documented career for nearly three decades. His leadership skills, proven ability to execute and relentless commitment to business excellence have made Vitagliano one of the IT industry's most recognizable and respected channel chiefs and industry visionaries.
"Frank's industry knowledge, working relationships and leadership experience are exactly what we were looking for and more in a president and CEO," said Jason Haffar. "Under Frank's leadership, we will expand Computex's footprint, break into new markets and technologies and continue to invest in our internal operational excellence, customer service experience and IT specializations including cloud, managed services, networking, security and software-defined networking."
As President and CEO of Computex, Vitagliano is responsible for the firm's go-to-market strategy and execution. His charter is to build on Computex's record success and collaborative company culture by keeping the needs of its customers and associates at the forefront of all business decisions.
"The Haffar brothers have done an amazing job positioning Computex to become one of the nation's top-performing and top-regarded MSPs," said Vitagliano. "I am thrilled and humbled that Sam, Jason and the Board of Directors have presented me with this opportunity to lead Computex. I am eager to work with this amazing team of contributors to build upon our strengths and elevate our game locally and nationally. There is a growing green field of opportunity for strategic IT service providers who understand customer service and know how to use IT to build advantage and exceed goals. Computex will lead in every way, every day. That's our goal -- plain and simple."
Vitagliano joins Computex after serving as Dell's Vice President of Global Distribution Sales and Strategy, where he inspired transformative channel sales efforts and grew strategic relationships with top IT service providers including Computex. Prior to working with Dell, Vitagliano led global channel sales for Juniper Networks. Vitagliano began his career at IBM, where he first met the Haffar brothers and earned his longstanding title of channel chief.
