Blue Chip Grows National Footprint, Appoints Senior Vice President of Emerging Markets
With the acceleration of large enterprises investing in Microsoft technologies, the need for companies to implement and optimize these technologies is on the rise. In response to a demand for experienced IT partners, Blue Chip has appointed Tony Guidi to Senior Vice President of Emerging Markets.
Guidi will lead the strategy and execution of growth opportunities for Blue Chip, helping the company expand into new markets in order to fill gaps in holistic IT consulting.
“Blue Chip is committed to helping Fortune 1000 companies maximize the value of their Microsoft investment and move to the cloud," said Guidi. "In order to better serve clients nationwide, we will expand our reach by developing new global alliances and creating jobs in cities across the United States."
In 2017, Blue Chip invested $1.3 million to expand their headquarters to accommodate growth, client collaboration and training facilities. Blue Chip also expanded into Nashville, TN and Louisville, KY. In 2018, Blue Chip will focus on the development of Central and Southeast United States, with plans to hire at least 40 IT professionals across those regions.
“Tony is uniquely qualified to help Blue Chip expedite growth and fill in well-known gaps in the IT ecosystem,” said Jim Peelman, CEO. “Our goal is to help clients capitalize on advances in cloud computing and Microsoft’s latest innovations. Not to mention, to redefine the standard of service clients can expect from an IT partner.”
Since 2013, Guidi has served as the Senior Vice President of Consulting Services at Blue Chip. Prior to that, Tony held leadership positions at Microsoft, MTM Technologies, Vector, Linc Networks and SARCOM. As a result, Guidi brings extensive IT experience, 25 years of consulting leadership, and a successful track record of growing new markets to his role at Blue Chip.
