Surratt’s responsibilities include developing new partnerships and selling RapidScale cloud offerings throughout the Central region. During his eight years at Rackspace as partner account manager, he was responsible for accelerating business opportunities and strategic channel partners.

He was a part of Rackspace’s channel program, and spent his time developing and educating partners on managed cloud strategies.

“I am truly thankful for the opportunity to join the RapidScale team,” Surratt said. “In a time where the cloud market is rapidly evolving, partners and customers need help developing and implementing cloud strategies that drive their companies forward. It’s an exciting time to be a part of this industry and an even more exciting time to be a part of RapidScale.”

Bob Buchanan, RapidScale’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, said his company is “laser-focused on attracting top talent.”

“I could not be more excited to welcome Kyle to the RapidScale team,” he said. “Kyle has set a high bar with his track record of success, supporting partners, and creating value for customers. I’m confident that he is going to make an immediate impact to RapidScale and our sales strategy in the Central region.”
