Bel Air, MD, October 18, 2018 — Go2Group, a global provider of IT delivery solutions that helps enterprises achieve business agility through products and services around DevOps, cloud hosting, and agile practices, today announced that Tom Stiling, currently Chairman of the Board, has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer of the firm with immediate effect. The appointment comes on the back of another strong year of the company’s financial growth and a recent accomplishment of spinning off its ConnectALL software product division in a joint venture with Orasi Software.
Stiling, who joined Go2Group as its initial Board of Director member and CEO Advisor in 2016, is a seasoned leader with a proven record of taking technology companies to the next level by accelerating their innovation and revenue growth. With 30 years of software operational experience, most recently as CEO of Tidal Wave Partners LLC and Angel Investments, Tom has assisted many early-stage software start-up launch operations (domestic and international), secure funding, and successful exit via an M&A or IPO.
Stiling has held additional high profile positions throughout his career. Prior to Go2Group, he has held multiple CEO, COO, CRO, Sales Ops, and HR roles with such diverse companies as Bluestone Software, Curl Corporation, Hewlett Packard, SalesMethods (a London-based startup), EnterpriseDB, and others. Most recently, Tom launched Gartner’s initial “CEO SMB Advisory” program for hi-tech start-ups generally under $20million in revenue.
“I am honoured and grateful to lead this extraordinary team of global IT professionals to the next level of achievement within the exploding DevOps marketplace. Building on our platinum-level partnerships with companies such as CloudBees and Atlassian, we expect to be the “vendor of choice” for our marquis customers’ and prospects’ DevOps projects, products, and implementation services,” said Tom Stiling.
Brett Taylor, former CEO and President of Go2Group, will serve as a special advisor to the management team and will focus his effort as the CEO of ConnectALL LLC. “Starting Go2Group and having the chance to build and work with such a great team has been one of the most incredible and rewarding experiences of my career,” said Taylor. “Together, as Go2Group marks its 16th year in this business with growth and tremendous achievements, we are well on our way. I’m delighted to hand over the reins to an executive of Tom’s experience to help us achieve the next stage of exponential growth,” said Taylor.
