IT solution provider Trace3 has appointed Tyler Beecher as its latest chief executive officer, succeeding company founder Hayes Drumwright, who will take on a new leadership position as executive chairman of Trace3.
In his new role as CEO, Beecher will be tasked with helping Trace3 to reach its eventual $1 billion annual revenue goal. He previously served as executive vice president of Sales for Trace3, where he was responsible for leading the global sales team and developing management-training programs to accelerate sales and improve customer service. During his tenure as Sales VP, Cisco Systems (CSCO) in 2013 named Trace3 its Innovation Partner of the Year.
“In the short term, we plan to reinforce Trace3’s identity for having the industry’s most elite engineers in Big Data and cloud computing, and broaden our expertise in adjacent sectors that support our transformed data center message,” said Beecher in an email message. “Longer term, we expect to continue our ongoing transformation of Trace3 as a full-services IT solutions provider, including unique new consulting strategies to promote organizational health and management leadership training, which none of our competitors have focused on yet.”
“Tyler is a world-class technology executive who brings extensive experience in the IT trenches to our leadership team,” said Drumwright. “His deep background and broad knowledge prepare him to take Trace3 to the next level of operational excellence as a high-growth company and industry disruptor.”
Drumwright launched Trace3 in 2002 as an IT systems VAR, from which the company has evolved into a full-service partner for IT services such as Big Data consulting forms, cloud computing companies and datacenter infrastructure implementers, according to the press release. Under his leadership, Trace3 reached $420 million in revenue in 2013.
In February, Trace3 kicked off a new, triangulated program to link CIOs with technology suppliers and venture capital firms in the hopes of establishing itself as a technology facilitator to its customers.
