Cetrom Management Team
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 the success that can be attributed to his personal resolve, ongoing commitment to maintaining excellent customer service, and 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.
Mark Wright is the company’s technology guru. With over 20 years of experience in IT, Wright oversees the technical operations of the company, including leading strategic technical direction, delivering enterprise-class client solutions, and handpicking Cetrom’s knowledgeable engineering staff. Wright is also responsible for ensuring that clients continue to experience our 99.9 percent uptime guarantee.
Wright’s oversight and direction of the Cetrom infrastructure has created a network that is one of the best in existence, which Wright considers one of his greatest personal accomplishments. The quality of the Cetrom network showcases the high level of skill and expertise that Wright has honed over the years by turning a hobby into a successful career. Wright’s previous experience in the security industry provided a foundation that emphasizes the importance of data security, high-availability networks, and immediate access to valuable resources. Wright holds certifications from Microsoft and Citrix, and to this day, retains his initial enthusiasm in IT, bringing not just experience, but a true passion for technology to the future of Cetrom.
