House of Brick is pleased to announce the hiring of Bob Lindquist, industry veteran and leader in the virtualization of business critical applications (VBCA), as the business development director for the west region.
“Bob was one of the early visionaries in the industry to grasp the importance of virtualizing business critical applications such as Oracle and SQL Server-based systems,” said Jim Ogborn, VP of Client Services at House of Brick. “I am excited that he will bring his vision of virtualization and cloud computing coupled with House of Brick’s industry-leading VBCA services to our customers and partners in the west region.”
House of Brick is leading the industry in virtualizing business critical systems, having provided services to dozens of the Fortune 500 companies, as well as hundreds of other enterprises of all sizes. Service bundles such as the Oracle or SQL Server on VMware Enablement, and the Oracle License Review and Architecture Optimization have helped House of Brick customers save countless millions of dollars while improving high availability, disaster recoverability, and new feature time to market.
“Virtualizing business critical systems, such as those built on top of Oracle DB or MS SQL Server is sometimes an intimidating thing for our customers,” says Nathan Biggs, House of Brick CEO. “This fear can come from not having done this type of virtualization successfully before, and can also come from misunderstandings about performance, licensing, and support from their software vendors. House of Brick knocks down the technical and emotional barriers that our customers face in taking on projects like this, and provides key services for successful implementations.”
In commenting on the hiring of Bob Lindquist, Biggs said “Bob will bring tremendous energy to the growth we are experiencing at House of Brick. With the increased VBCA activity we are seeing in the west, Bob is a welcome and critical addition to our team.”
"In my 25 years as a customer, solution provider, and consultant, I have seen the transformation of IT in all organizations due to enabling technologies like virtualization,” said Bob Lindquist. “VBCA is the next enabler for providing IT-as-a-Service to lines of business. House of Brick is the industry specialist in this space, and I feel privileged to join such a strong team of IT visionaries."
Bob Lindquist immediately assumes business development responsibility for House of Brick’s customers and partners in the western states region, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah. Come meet Bob at House of Brick’s Suite at Mandalay Bay during VMware’s Partner Exchange, February 23rd through the 28th in Las Vegas.
