East China, Michigan (PRWEB) December 22, 2014
iPexpert, a leading training provider for Cisco’s prestigious CCIE certification, is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Mr. Jarrod Mills to the position CTO and Sr. Routing and Switching (R&S) Portfolio Director.
New to iPexpert, Mills is not new to the CCIE industry. His experience encompasses an extensive 20-year background in the enterprise IT industry, with concentrations on world-wide enterprise design, business development (formerly a CEO), high-end instruction, and a wealth of hands-on experience with a focus on R&S, Data Center, Service Provider and Heavily Secured infrastructures. In his new role, Mills will identify iPexpert’s needs in the R&S space, and will be intimately involved in the creation and delivery of all R&S content. In addition, he will be the acting CTO, using his impeccable experience to bring new ideas to the company to drastically accelerate growth within those new sectors. Mr. Mills is also going to be involved in building out iPexpert’s new CCIE Service Provider portfolio as well as a Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE) self-study and course portfolio. These offerings are slated to go to market in Q3 and Q4 of 2015 respectively.
Mr. Mills joins iPexpert’s “rock star” team of high-end instructors at an exciting time. iPexpert’s CCIE verticals (R&S, Data Center, Collaboration, Wireless, and Security) are the clear industry choice of the niche CCIE training community, however their CCIE R&S portfolio has languished. Wayne Alan Lawson II, iPexpert’s Founder and CEO says, “I search across the globe for the industry’s best instructors. They go through an extensive personality profile test, an IQ test and the industry’s most rigorous technical interview. Jarrod’s abilities have blown me away, as have my current instructors, so we’re very fortunate to have found Jarrod at this crucial time, and we’re beyond thrilled to be adding him to the team, rounding out the technical team I’ve assembled over the past several years.”
In speaking of this new role, Mills said, “With nearly 20 years in the IT industry, where I’ve designed, installed, and supported some of the nation’s and world’s largest network infrastructures for Fortune 50 clients, I’ve finally found a position that I could have only dreamt about. Wayne has given me an opportunity which will utilize all of my strengths and the technical, management, and sales abilities that I’m most passionate about. When the opportunity presented itself, and speaking with Wayne and iPexpert, there was no hesitation.“
