GERMANTOWN, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Recovery Point Systems, an Abry Partners company and a leader in cloud-based business resilience services based in Germantown, Md., is pleased to announce that Jack Dziak, Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors, has been named Chief Executive Officer effective immediately. Dziak is a long-time senior technology executive with over 35 years of experience in the enterprise IT, infrastructure, and communications services industries. He brings extensive global experience in managing complex technology businesses from hyper-scaled IT infrastructure and communications services to systems integration and strategic consulting. Dziak will lead all facets of Recovery Point’s business.
Dziak has served on Recovery Point’s Board of Directors since May and as Executive Chairman since August 2022. Prior to his appointment as CEO, he was the Founder of Dziak Advisory Services LLC, an advisory firm that provides strategic, financial, and technology consulting to the digital infrastructure, cyber security, and managed services industries and their private equity and venture investors. His previous C-suite experience includes Executive Vice President Global Products and Chief Strategy Officer at Sungard Availability Services (2011-2017), with P&L responsibility for the $1.2B global recovery and managed services business, and Chief Operating Officer of Apcela, a provider of managed network and SD-WAN services. Dziak has also held multiple executive-level leadership positions with Accenture, Neustar, Inc., Sprint Nextel, and MCI Communications. His early career was spent as the lead financial economist for the privatization of national telecommunications concerns in over 20 countries. He holds an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and a B.S. in Economics from Virginia Tech. He is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
“We’re pleased to have Jack leading Recovery Point Systems,” said Brian St. Jean, Partner at Abry Partners and member of the RPS Board of Directors. “Jack has unparalleled experience in the global recovery and cyber resilience industry and brings a fresh perspective to RPS’ strategy. During his time as Chairman, Jack provided strong strategic and tactical leadership for the team and helped shape Recovery Point’s product strategy around its vision of being a leader in business resilience services. We are excited for the Company’s future under Jack’s leadership.”
“I am honored to take on this new chapter in my role as Executive Chairman,” said Dziak. “Recovery Point Systems leads the market in business resiliency services and is a strategic enabler for the protection and disaster preparedness of complex, distributed, and vulnerable IT environments. The dramatically expanded – and fluid – risk landscapes faced by C-suites, CISOs, CIOs, and Boards represent a significant business challenge, one which RPS is uniquely suited to address. Cyber threats, the hybrid nature of IT, and the proliferation of unstructured data drive business continuity requirements well beyond traditional ‘DRaaS’ services. ‘Recovery’ is really about resiliency and has become a critical component of business operations. That’s a tremendous opportunity for us.”
