Lee Technologies Expands Public Sector Division
Leading Provider of Complete Data Center Solutions Grows to Support Increasing Government Demand
FAIRFAX, Va. February 23 --(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lee Technologies, the leading provider of complete data center solutions and resources to some of the most data-reliant corporations and government organizations in the world, announced today it is expanding its public sector division to support the growing government demand for its services, especially within the areas of cyber security and national defense.
“Government agencies are under a lot of pressure to transform their legacy critical facilities to keep pace with current commercial trends in virtualization, consolidation, security and cloud computing,” said George Newstrom, Lee Technologies president and COO. “We look forward to working with top government solutions partners to meet the growing demand for our services at both the federal and state level.”
In 2009, Lee Technologies increased its government business by 300 percent. This significant growth was a major force in creating new jobs and resulted in a 30 percent increase in headcount throughout the company. One of the key contracts that played a role in this growth was a multimillion-dollar award from the U.S. Department of Defense.
“We are rapidly driving our commercial industry success into the public sector market, delivering benefit to government agencies throughout the United States,” said Anthony Rizzo, Lee Technologies Public Sector vice president. “Our total solutions approach to meeting data center infrastructure needs, combined with our technical expertise and security clearances, allows us to deliver great value to all federal, state and local government agencies.”
To drive further public sector growth, Carl Cecil and Kenneth Sadowski have been hired as senior directors of business development focused on the intelligence and defense communities. Cecil is based in Fairfax, Va., and Sadowski is based in Denver, Colo. Both executives have more than 25 years of experience in systems management within the public sector.
