"We were looking for a strong, experienced IT sales and operational leader that could move us to the next level, in what we perceive is a good potential growth market," shares Wade Dewald, Sogeti's Regional Vice President of the West, on hiring Yost. "As we see the market consolidating, demanding more value and vertical-oriented solutions, we felt Scott was the person that can deliver on these given both his previous large company System Integrator experience and his entrepreneurial success."
Yost was added to the Sogeti Phoenix team to better position the office for growth. The team has ambitions to double the unit in the next 2 years.
"The quality of people at Sogeti, on all levels, and the focus on leveraging technology to maximize profit and results was a driving factor in my decision to join Sogeti," shares Yost.
