Thomas Duryea boosts Cloud leadership

Adam Beavis appointed to position of Cloud services general manager

IT infrastructure solutions provider, Thomas Duryea (TD), has bolstered its Cloud leadership by appointing Adam Beavis to the newly-created role of Cloud services general manager.

The move is part of the company’s push into the Cloud and managed services market, and follows the recent launch of its expanded Cloud services portfolio.

TD chief executive officer (CEO), Andrew Thomas, said the appointment of a senior executive will drive growth in 2013 on the back of success in the markets last year.

“In the last three months there wouldn’t be one customer not interested in the Cloud, especially a hybrid Cloud model, and as a result we have seen strong growth in revenues from our Cloud practice in 2012,” Thomas said.

“With Beavis at the helm, we look forward to supporting client demand with a portfolio of best in breed Cloud and managed services solutions to accelerate our growth in this market.”

Since joining TD, Beavis has lead the launch of the company’s infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), DR-as-a-service (DRaaS), and backup-as-a-service (BaaS) solutions.

Looking forward, he believes developing applications with the Cloud in mind, specifically around platform-as-a-service (PaaS), will be a significant theme in 2013.

“Ensuring TD’s Cloud and managed services portfolio is aligned with the needs of the market will be a priority and expanding our solutions suite while ensuring innovation in not only design but delivery of our solutions will be a key goal of mine in the year ahead.”

Beavis joins TD from Red Hat where he worked as channel sales director. Prior to that, he was Commvault business development director. He has also spent time at VMware and Express Data in a career that spans over 15 years.
