Anexinet Names Brian Glahn New CEO

‘The appointment of Brian is not a change in direction, rather a continuation of our momentum,’ Anexinet Chief Marketing Officer Suzanne Lentz says in an email to CRN.

Anexinet, a Blue Bell, Pa.-based channel partner of HPE, AWS, Microsoft and Dell, among other vendors, has reorganized its leadership.

Brian Glahn (pictured above) became CEO of Anexinet, a member of CRN’s 2021 Tech Elite 250, starting this month after serving as president of infrastructure and cloud since November.

Todd Pittman, Glahn’s predecessor, is now chief operating officer, the company told CRN.

“The appointment of Brian is not a change in direction, rather a continuation of our momentum,” Anexinet Chief Marketing Officer Suzanne Lentz said in an email to CRN. “We have exciting M&A and growth initiatives this year. In order to successfully achieve them, it was decided that we need both a CEO and a COO to achieve our goals. The best alignment of skills for each position found Brian ideally suited for CEO and Todd Pittman’s skills more in tune with COO responsibilities.”

In October, Anexinet reached an agreement to acquire SereneIT, a solution provider specializing in data center automation and AI, to bolster its engineering capabilities and geographic reach.

Before Anexinet, Glahn was CEO at IT firm CXtec and previously at Atlantix Global Systems, acquired by CXtec in 2017. Mill Point Capital, a private equity firm that owns Anexinet, sold Atlantix to CXtec.

Pittman joined Anexinet in 2015 as chief financial officer and became CEO in January 2019, according to his LinkedIn account.

Last October, Anexinet acquired SereneIT, a three-year-old company based in the Atlanta area in Milton, Ga. in a move aimed at bolstering its engineering capabilities and geographic reach. The acquisition brought the number of employees at the company to 300.

Pittman at the time said that the acquisition would help to expand the company beyond its Philadelphia-centric footprint and into the southeastern U.S.--while also serving as “an incredible opportunity for us to bring even greater engineering talent and capability, as well as expanding it in areas like containerization, AI, machine learning.”
