The Stratosphere team is prepared to seize new opportunities and offer expert guidance to business leaders in the Tampa Bay area looking to make sense of complex IT solution landscapes.

Stratosphere Networks has added a sales team member in Florida and is growing the company’s presence in the Tampa Bay area.

Erika Maita, senior vice president of advisory services at Stratosphere Networks, joins the team with a decade of technology experience and extensive B2B sales and data center infrastructure expertise. With channel and direct sales strategies, she has successfully closed over $60 million in sales.

She’s also highly involved in the Tampa Bay business community: Maita is a member of the Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce and earned recognition in 2016 from the Tampa Bay Business Journal as an Up & Comer in the under 30 category.    

“As a Tampa Native, I’ve watched the growth of our business community over the past 10 years,” Maita said. “Not only are businesses moving here every day, but Tampa Bay has been a hub for innovation and technology. Synapse FL. and Brian Kornfeld are great examples of that. Florida itself is ranked highly amongst several publications nationwide as the best place to start a business, to live, and to maintain an active lifestyle. Our VC community is the most active; look at what Marc Blumenthal and Tom Wallace have done with Florida Funders. Their portfolio is extensive!”

As a member of the Stratosphere team, she will utilize her sales experience and tech knowledge to expand the company’s presence in southeast Florida and establish new partnerships in the Tampa Bay area.

Stratosphere’s advisory services streamline the process of shopping for new IT solutions. With an extensive partner network, in-depth tech experience and access to advanced tools, the company’s advisors efficiently identify best-in-class products and services that align with each client’s unique pain points, needs and goals.    

"We’re very pleased to welcome Erika aboard and excited to expand our presence in Florida," said Steve Melchiorre, CEO of Stratosphere Networks. “The Stratosphere team is prepared to seize new opportunities and offer expert guidance to business leaders in the Tampa Bay area looking to make sense of complex IT solution landscapes."

The company’s Florida-based staff members can serve businesses in Jacksonville, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Hialeah, Port St. Lucie, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Orlando, Sarasota, Tallahassee, and Cape Coral, among other cities.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have joined Stratosphere; their brand, service, and solutions are something I can stand behind,” Maita said. “We are going to do big things in the Southeast and help a lot of companies.”
