“As organizations continue to move their business to the cloud, they are looking for providers with a wide-breadth of solutions and a superior customer experience,” Nitel CEO Rick Stern said. “With Mark’s proven track record in telecom, cloud and IT, I am confident in his ability to lead organizations through their digital transformation.”
