As has become the tradition for Thursdays, it is time to select our ‘Geek of the Week.’ Developments within the cloud industry are snowballing to such a point that this job is becoming increasingly difficult as time goes on.
The recipient of the award this week was selected for two reasons. One, because they are the CEO of a company that has seen extremely impressive growth recently within the cloud industry. Secondly, because we are impressed with their companies excellent cloud offering. We are happy to announce this week’s Geek of the Week is Seth Bostock, Chief Executive Officer at IndependenceIT. As the CEO at IndependenceIT, Seth is largely responsible for shaping IndependenceIT’s overall direction and strategy.
We mentioned IndependenceIT earlier this week in reference to their whopping 330% growth rate for the 2014 fiscal year. IndependenceIT is a desktop-as-as service software platform provider that enables service providers to deploy comprehensive workspaces in the cloud.
For anyone who is not yet familiar with this series. A while ago, the CloudWedge team launched a feature called Geek of the Week. In this feature we award the prestigious honor of ‘Geek of the Week’ to someone from our news posts of that week we feel have done something that deserves special mention or praise. This is either directly through their actions or those of their companies. This award is a certification of honor as the receiver is considered to be a ‘cloud leader.’
Seth’s work experience prior to IndependenceIT is quite diverse. Having previously worked as an attorney and business consultant. He also worked as a sales representative for Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical.
Seth has a JD in Law from Western New England College School of Law, and a BA in Communication from University of Massachusetts.
