Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 22, 2015
Hilltop Consultants, a Washington, DC-based managed IT and professional services firm, today announced a key addition to its executive leadership team with the hiring of Douglas Furst as Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Furst brings deep IT services and software knowledge. He will complement Hilltop’s executive leadership team as the company continues to build its brand while focusing on delivering premium technology services to businesses worldwide.
“Doug brings an exceptional track record of accomplishments over the past several years while serving the IT services industry,” said Jim Turner, Hilltop’s CEO. “Most importantly, he has proven he has the skill set to successfully scale a technology business within our space. We are very confident that, with his leadership, we will significantly grow our business without sacrificing the entrepreneurial spirit and exceptional quality of service that has gotten us to where we are today.”
Mr. Furst has more than 20 years of management experience in the IT services industry. Over the past 10 years, he has served as Director of Business Applications and other key stakeholder positions with All Covered, a national Managed Services Provider (MSP). Joining All Covered when it had fewer than 350 employees, Mr. Furst was instrumental in helping successfully grow the privately-held company to more than 900 employees by developing systems and processes to maximize employee productivity. Prior to All Covered, he held various management roles at several MSPs in Washington, DC and Boston.
“Jim has built a fantastic team of experts who take their client relationships very personally,” said Mr. Furst. “They have a saying at Hilltop, ‘We don’t just take I.T. seriously, we take I.T. personally.’ This is not just a mantra on a sales brochure; they actually live it and everyone cares about their clients. This is a refreshing approach, and I am excited to join such a great team.”
