Clifton Park, NY (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
The start of 2013 marks a major strategic shift in Annese & Associates, Inc.’s corporate business strategy as the company evolves its product-led sales approach into a services-led structure. Annese has concentrated its core competencies into two defined technology practices; Collaboration and Data Center Virtualization.
With the steady growth in Annese’s managed services development and demand since 2009, implementing this new business model will strategically position the organization for the future, improve its bottom line profitability, and further distinguish Annese from its competitors. To date, Annese’s Data Center Virtualization Practice is its fastest growing area of business.
“This is a living and breathing reorganization that is happening in real-time. It’s a transition that’s not going to happen all at once. But at the end of the day, this is going to serve the company well; it’s going to take us into the future,” affirms Ray Apy, President & CEO.
“I look very much forward to our employees’ involvement, their contributions, their input, and to our shared success as we change, adapt, and grow. We have a great team—the best in New York State—and we’re going to continue to drive employee satisfaction, we’re going to continue to drive customer satisfaction, and we’re going to be here for a long, long time.”
Annese has identified two practice managers to provide focus and clarity around each sales/service competency and promote internal subject matter experts within each concentration.
Executive leadership has streamlined to include the CFO, Joe LoRe; Director of Marketing, Kara Rudy; VP of Services, Jamie Aiello; Chief of Staff, Maura Peddle; and newly hired VP of Sales, Steve Heath; each reporting to the President.
