We don’t like to get too into the habit of patting ourselves on the back, so it’s always nice when someone else does it for you.
The Puget Sound Business Journal recently named Skytap CTO and VP of Engineering Brad Schick as the winner of their 2013 Startup Technology Leadership Star award.
PSBJ Managing Editor Becky Monk writes that their annual CIO Awards are presented to “leaders in health care, travel, retail, real estate, architecture, sports and technology who are leveraging the latest technology to innovate and deliver big wins for their companies, their customers and the region.”
After being notified of Brad’s recognition, Skytap CEO Thor Culverhouse had this to say:
It’s obviously very well deserved. For nearly four years at Skytap, Brad continues to demonstrate his passion, dedication, and thought leadership in the area of cloud computing, enabling the company to be in an enviable market position. In addition to that, he is a great people leader and just a great person to work with.
An example of Brad’s thought leadership can be seen in his well-received presentation that he gave at AWS re:Invent 2013, titled, “Application Darwinism: Why Most Enterprise Apps Will Evolve to the Cloud.”
