Taos today announced that it has named Hamilton Yu Chief Operating Officer. Yu, an industry veteran and cloud technology pioneer, has spent the last 20 years helping the world’s top companies solve complicated business challenges by integrating the latest technologies into best of breed solutions.
Prior to Taos, Yu was VP of Cloud Operations and Professional Services where he built, scaled and optimized cloud solutions for more than 100 Fortune 500 customers. He previously led key teams within Microsoft after the iconic company bought Tellme Networks for $800 million in 2007. Yu’s teams at Tellme leveraged cloud technology to create the first automated cloud voice solutions in retail and telecom verticals.
“We’re getting a battle-tested leader who has a history of taking successful companies to the next level,” said Taos Founder and CEO Ric Urrutia. “We’re extremely interested and invested in helping our clients transition to the cloud. This move signals to the industry that we are poised to build on our strong foundation and become the leader in this space.”
Yu assumes full COO duties immediately and will work to advance Taos’ cloud presence. “My goal is to bring the latest innovations and technologies to what Taos is already doing in infrastructure consulting and managed services so we can demonstrate that we are the best company to help clients migrate to the cloud or manage their infrastructure post-migration,” Yu said. He will purse aggressive growth and scale Taos’ businesses in an “efficient and seamless way.”
Yu will fill the role previously held by Jeff Lucchesi, who has announced his retirement after 38 years in IT leadership positions with Syva, Syntex, DHL, Corio, BMHC, and Taos.
