Cetrom Management Team
Christopher Stark, Founder, President, and CEO
Christopher Stark founded Cetrom in 2001. The true visionary behind the company, Stark built the company and its solutions with customers’ business needs and goals in mind. Stark developed Cetrom’s cloud model during a time when it was a very different way to manage technology.
One of Stark’s passions is to continuously find more ways to build upon the company’s strong customer service foundation, which is why providing the best and most secure service to customers will always be Cetrom’s number one goal. Over the last 20 years, Stark has cemented Cetrom’s status as a leading provider of secure and custom cloud solutions with success that can be attributed to his personal resolve, ongoing commitment to maintaining excellent customer service, and a best-in-class technology infrastructure. With a 99.9 percent up-time guarantee, the company’s history, and around-the-clock, senior-level IT support, Stark ensures that companies—whether staffed by two or two thousand—have access to enterprise-class technology at a price they can afford.
Backed by nearly 30 years of experience in all facets of the IT industry and holding some of the industry’s most prestigious technical certifications, Stark keeps his finger on the pulse of the IT industry and eyes toward the future.
Stark is a father and self-proclaimed computer geek who enjoys flying planes, playing golf and racing cars in his spare time. A Washington, D.C., native, Stark still resides in the metropolitan area today.
