TAMPA BAY, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Concertium, a leading managed cybersecurity and IT services provider, announces the appointment of IT industry veteran Robert Atherton as Chief Executive Officer. The appointment comes at a time of strong company growth and record industry demand, as the need for corporate IT management, security and compliance services has never been greater.
In his new role as CEO, Atherton will lead the company’s growth and expansion efforts to meet this increasing market demand. Concertium has also recently expanded its portfolio of security and compliance services, created a new dedicated Security Operations Team, and is also expanding its customer success, sales and marketing teams to provide additional support.
Concertium holds a unique position as one of the region’s largest and most advanced consolidated solutions, providing mid and larger sized businesses with a “Complete Cybersecurity & IT Partner” to achieve a compliant, secure business environment as they continue upon their IT and digital transformation journey. Furthermore, amid a record number of corporate data breaches, disruptive ransomware attacks and increasing (and often duplicative) federal and state regulations, Concertium plays a critical role in helping companies to manage their increasingly complex attack surfaces and to remediate sophisticated cyber attacks quickly and effectively if and when they occur. The company’s compliance and consulting services also play an invaluable role in ensuring customers meet their increasingly complex reporting requirements.
“Robert is a talented and experienced executive, and we’re excited to have him lead the company through the next phase of growth,” said Chris Rivera, Executive Chairman of Concertium and President of SCP&CO. “Robert’s leadership, experience, and skillsets are well-timed and uniquely suited for Concertium, as the company broadens its services portfolio to address these expanding growth opportunities and cements its position as an industry leader.”
“I’m honored to join this incredible team,” Atherton said. “Concertium is an amazing company with a strong position in the market and enormous long-term potential. Digital transformation is driving the market demand for managed IT, security, and compliance services and I look forward to scaling up our services and sales channels as we continue to grow and expand.”
Atherton is a seasoned Managed Technology Services executive, with over 25 years of industry experience spanning IT Operations, Development, Services and Sales leadership roles. Known for his focus on customer success and go-to-market strategy, Atherton will play a critical role as the company gears up for more growth and expansion in the coming year.
Prior to joining Concertium, Atherton served as the National Vice President for Sales and Revenue Generation at Visual Edge IT, a national powerhouse in Office Equipment, Managed IT Services, and Managed Security Services. He also served as President and Managing Partner of Zymphony Technology Solutions, a leading provider of managed IT solutions, cloud technologies, cybersecurity, and hosted IT solutions.
