Vermont Business Magazine A Vermont IT provider is expanding into new territories across New England, led by an experienced problem solver at the helm.
Thomas Dukeshire, a Green Mountain State native and longstanding Solutions Manager at Vermont Connections, has been named Senior Technical Solutions Architect for the company. In addition to delivering expert troubleshooting, network maintenance, and cloud migration expertise, Dukeshire will now be responsible for providing strategic leadership to the company’s growing team.
“Thomas has been a key player in our growth over the last five years,” said President and Founder David Mahoney. “This change comes at a perfect time as our company transitions into a new scope of services offered to Vermont businesses and those in greater New England.”
Vermont Connections, specializing in Managed IT services for small-to-medium sized businesses in the local area, is transitioning into a technology solutions provider for Vermont, New Hampshire, and western Massachusetts. The focus is on helping businesses understand and leverage technology for growth rather than just using it to maintain their infrastructure.
“The traditional role of IT is to keep the systems everyone relies on running smoothly and minimizing downtime,” Mahoney said. “That’s not enough to meet the needs of a modern business today. Our company is poised to help organizations across the region reach new levels of productivity using team-based CIO leadership and cloud-enabled platforms like Office 365.”
As a multi-certified technical resource and educator, Dukeshire will be instrumental in driving the company’s expansion. “It might sound strange to hear an engineer say this, but I don’t think technology is very useful in business,” he says, “unless it brings people together, and helps them collaborate to serve others. If you aren’t using tech to strengthen personal connections within your brand – in addition to securing and protecting your data – you are at risk of getting left behind.”
Vermont Connections Computer Services is a division of Mayskye Incorporated, founded in 1999 in St. Albans, Vermont.
