RapidScale has hired Louis Valentino, previously with TierPoint, as director of service delivery, charged with managing and leading the cloud engineers responsible for client implementations, procurement and escalated technical support for customers.
Prior to joining RapidScale, Valentino was vice president and general manager for TierPoint in North Carolina. He was responsible for customer experience and all aspects of the relationship for in-market clients, achieving revenue objectives, minimizing all aspects of risk and ensuring continuity of operations. He has nearly 30 years of experience in various IT management and leadership roles.
“I have spent many years supporting, engaging and being the advocate for customers in all industries with various IT complexities,” he said. “I look forward to working for a company with such an engaging customer, partner and colleague culture. I have had the privilege to have previously worked with RapidScale’s notable executives and engineers, and I’m eager to work alongside them once again.”
Duane Barnes, RapidScale’s senior vice president of technology, said his company is “aggressively adding talented people who align with RapidScale’s core values and company culture.”
“Having been personally associated with Louis for the past eight years, I’m confident he will be a valuable addition to the team,” he said.
Last month, RapidScale released Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN as part of its cloud portfolio.
