BROOMFIELD, COLORADO – Datavail’s Board of Directors announces its new leadership in the company community. Mike Jones, original founder, is transitioning from his role as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to a newly appointed role as Chairman of the Board. Jones’ expertise and tenured IT experience will continue to benefit Datavail’s future developments by driving its innovative style of delivering database management services and sustaining key client relationships. The addition of Perlstein to the management team adds to Datavail’s existing deep bench of talent.
“Mark Perlstein brings experience, an unmatched passion for excellence, and a demonstrated track record of success to this position,” said Jones. “The last year marked Datavail’s strongest growth history and the company recently found itself at a unique time to find the innovative vision to manage its impending continued growth. His leadership style combined with his knowledge and acumen of our industry will ensure both his success and that of our company.
”Perlstein most recently served as President of the IT Outsourcing division of CIBER, Inc. and was responsible for leading CIBER’s IT Outsourcing, Infrastructure, and Operations services group. Over his 18 years of experience, Perlstein’s expertise and success lies in helping clients achieve efficiencies, cost savings, and service level improvements in all areas of infrastructure including help desk, maintenance, data center hosting, and general systems support.
Prior to joining CIBER, Perlstein managed a services group in Boston, and has a strong background in general operations and go-to-market strategies for technology services organizations. Earlier in his career, Mr. Perlstein was a founder and principal of his own accounting and financial systems consulting firm and is adept at providing revenue-generation and turnaround consulting services in the technology and services markets.
“My decision to move to Datavail was based on several factors; the most prevailing being the company’s impressive ability to grow in both 2009 and 2010 despite the economy and shrinking IT budgets. The level of technology expertise and tailored service solutions within the company was a big draw. Datavail has been the best kept secret in the database management services industry and I look forward to enabling our team to ensuring double digit growth rates in the future as well,” said Perlstein.
