Vienna, Va. – Feb. 21, 2014 – Cetrom Information Technology, Inc. (Cetrom), an industry-leading provider of custom cloud solutions that transform the way SMBs succeed, announces that Jerry Shipley, its Director of Business Development, has been named a recipient of the 2014 Washington SmartCEO Executive Management Award. Only 40 top executives in the Washington region will be recognized for their leadership and accomplishments in the March/April issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony on March 13, 2014 at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner.
“All too often, senior leaders in an organization become unsung heroes. This is why SmartCEO designed the Executive Management Awards. The 2014 Executive Management Award winners are not only leading their companies and co-workers to achieve great things but they are also making huge contributions to their communities,” said Jaime Nespor, regional president of SmartCEO media. “We are honored to recognize each of these individuals and celebrate their accomplishments.” Shipley joined Cetrom in 2012, bringing with him a track record of producing positive, bottom line results for companies ranging from Fortune 500 to startup companies at local, national and international levels. He has applied his experience in multiple vertical markets, including telecom, SaaS, healthcare, utilities and maritime, to not only build a successful sales force at Cetrom, but also deliver value to his customers by producing meaningful results. With a focus on achieving success both inside and outside of the business, Shipley believes in nurturing each individual on his team, while attaining and sharing the insight and resources necessary to maintain a high level of expertise in the industry.
Christopher Stark, president and CEO, Cetrom, says, “In working with Jerry, I’ve really gotten to know him, his mind and his impeccable work ethic. These attributes, as well as his leadership and initiative at the helm of Cetrom’s business development, have been instrumental in the company’s success, especially as we recently entered into a period of enormous external growth. Not only does Jerry bring in new clientele, but he also builds and maintains long-term relationships with our existing clients. Furthermore, he has single handedly developed Cetrom’s sales force by training our consultants and leading by example. Working with Jerry has been a truly unique and outstanding experience.” The Executive Management Awards program recognizes the leadership and accomplishments of Washington’s management all-stars — the CFOs, CIOs/CTOs, COOs and other C-suite executives leading the region’s business community. Winners are recognized for their creative management vision, leadership philosophy, innovative strategy and undeniable work ethic.
