Thanksgiving weekend!

What a wonderful time of the year. I enjoyed a blessed weekend of family, friends, football and food. It’s hard to believe, but we even had a 60+ degree day in Wisconsin on Friday, providing the perfect opportunity to get the outdoor living spaces winterized. We’re ready – bring on the snow. Well, maybe I’m not quite ready for that!

I hope you had an equally enjoyable holiday weekend with family and friends.

Speaking of family, we have an addition to our Focus Solutions family. I’m thrilled to share that we have expanded our team to complement our recent move into cloud services.

After being a close friend and resource to our organization for a number of years, Jason Lamine has formally come aboard to lead our cloud services operation.

Jason provides Focus Solutions with 17 years of managed system infrastructure experience. He previously directed the data center operations of a national logistics firm and has consulted on several large scale cloud computing implementations. Coupled with his previous experience and systems engineering knowledge, Jason directs the operations of Focus’ cloud services offering and provides the technical expertise our clients require as they take advantage of the efficiencies and advancements cloud computing has to offer.

Most recently, Jason has been instrumental in the delivery of an entirely new cloud-based datacenter for a large healthcare group in the Chicagoland area. This was not a typical Focus service offering, but through Jason’s particularly broad skill-set, Focus exceeded customer expectations and delivered a complete end-to-end cloud data center environment encompassing all the organizations’ computing systems.

At the completion of the data center build, the client requested a more dynamic network architecture for its clinical locations.  The Focus team was able to reengineer their current network from WAN, LAN and WLAN to provide a highly reliable, scalable and advanced cutting edge solution.

Jason lives in Wisconsin with his wife Amanda, and his two sons Alex (6) and Cameron (4). The family enjoys spending time on the water, vacations in Door County and exploring new culinary venues.

Please join me in welcoming Jason as the newest member of our Focus Solutions family.

Though I’m not quite confident that I’m personally ready for another Wisconsin winter, I’m very confident that our Focus team is better positioned than ever to help your organization prepare for 2018 and beyond.

Let me close by expressing my most sincere THANK YOU to all the clients and prospective clients we’ve been fortunate to work alongside in the past year. Just like Jason, we view you too, as our family. My team and I are humbled by the trust and confidence you place in us. We appreciate you!

Always here to help,
