Zumasys Hires Kevin Fitzpatrick as Director of Technical Support
Zumasys announced that Kevin Fitzpatrick has joined the company as Director of Technical Support. Prior to joining Zumasys, Fitzpatrick enjoyed an 19-year career at San Diego based Roel Construction, most recently as the Director of Information Technology. Roel Construction was an early adopter of VMware and cloud computing and a long-term Zumasys customer before being acquired by Suffolk Construction Company in 2011.
"Kevin has a unique perspective as both an IT Manager and a business leader which we believe will benefit our customers," said Paul Giobbi, President of Zumasys. "He personifies high-integrity and service and has already made a positive impact on the Zumasys customer experience."
Giobbi added, "I am pleased that Kevin has taken over this important role at Zumasys. As our customer base continues to grow, we need a leader with the vision and values that can assist both our on-premise and Cloud customers, taking our support organization to the next level."
Fitzpatrick joined Roel Construction in 1992 as a Project Engineer and was subsequently promoted to Project Manager and eventually to Director of Information Technology. He led all of the company's technology initiatives; optimized and streamlined support processes; managed outside software development; and forecasted all necessary IT budgets and expenditures. Fitzpatrick consistently kept Roel on top of the technology curve by architecting and deploying the latest infrastructure technologies from Citrix, VMware, Packeteer, Salesforce CRM and ShoreTel. He won the Award of Excellence in Technology for use of Cloud Computing by Associated General Contractors of San Diego (AGCSD) in 2010. Fitzpatrick graduated Magna Cum Laude from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California.
