Who are your top vendors?
We have developed a portfolio of world-class technology partners. I am very proud to announce that Affinity is now a Citrix Ready Partner. Other partners include, InterWorks, Sepago, Ensim, Aurora Blue Technologies, Nimateks and Waypoint. We also work with Microsoft and Verizon Cloud, as well as other partners who fulfill software apps, such as SAP, Microsoft Dynamics and others.
Are there are a lot of companies like ACC?
The cloud ecosystem is constantly growing, but, to my knowledge, there is nobody like Affinity, because of my history in this business, the fact that my revenue is tied to my clients' revenue and the extensive partner relationships I have.
What drives you personally?
I love making meaningful connections and finding innovative ways to help customers achieve their goals. I’ve built this business, and my entire career, on credibility and integrity. It's about long-term relationships, smart strategy and transparency. I advocate for my customers; my success is their success.
What is your road map for 2014, and what are you hoping to see?
We are a young company for whom the opportunities are developing rapidly and in a way that is difficult to forecast. But I believe it's going to be a great year for us, for our clients and for our partners. I predict that many of the success stories in the cloud space will involve unlikely partnerships across the country, and across oceans too.
