Electric, the world’s first all-in-one IT support solution for small and mid-size offices, today announced the appointment of Vince Tse to Chief Technology Officer. In this role he will lead and accelerate Electric’s evolution as a world-class, fully integrated technology organization.Vince is a proven leader with over a decade of success energizing growth and profitability for Engineering teams in New York at MediaMath, Yahoo and DoubleClick. He started as a Lead Developer at MediaMath 9 years ago and moved up the ladder into a Director and later VP role.
“I’m thrilled to round out our executive team with the addition of a technical expert, and strong leader like Vince,” said Ryan Denehy, Electric’s CEO and Founder. He is a proven innovator and leader with extensive experience building world-class technology teams and developing highly-successful products and platforms. His expertise is essential to keeping Electric at the forefront of delivering innovative products, cutting-edge tools and unparalleled services that ensure our customers’ success.”
Vince, a Michigan alumni, is also extremely passionate about the opportunity to build a true training and development organization. “We will prioritize hiring 5 more Sr. Software Engineers this quarter outside of our team of 10, but in 2019 we will be rolling out a partnership with a few select organizations and universities to hire and train developing engineers,” Tse explained. “I love to mentor and see people who are excited about development get the opportunity to work with a very talented team.”
“We’re solving a massive problem for SMBs and Mid-Market businesses. Nearly 50% of small businesses do not have dedicated IT teams and another 17% only have in-house IT people. We’ve seen that even when an organization has a team in-house, it’s insufficient for most. Companies are outsourcing the majority of their needs and, unfortunately, as software and tools have exploded over the past 10 years for businesses, IT has not changed much to support these more complex systems. Not to mention, every company needs advanced security as they grow,” Tse explains.
“Companies with less than 500 people are spending $129.8B on IT services annually. That number is $420B globally,” Denehy comments. “Vince is the type of hire for our team that is going to strategically lead our engineering and product teams to develop solutions that will alleviate this spend for companies and automate routine tasks—like onboarding and offboarding, that companies really struggle to figure out. Success-wise, we can’t wait to see what 2019 holds with a leader like Vince on board.”
