My name is Tony Kaperick and I am a Senior Account Executive at Presidio.

I help my clients accelerate their “time to mission”, how quickly they can deliver on the mission of their organization. Serving students, patients, or constituents -- delivering on the promise and passion that is the lifeblood of that organization.  I leverage process and practical input in a partnership with our clients’ staff, trying to bring a fresh perspective, a new option, a different way of thinking to the challenge at hand.

My name is Jay Gilchrist and I am a Practical Thinker at Presidio.   I am a Sales Manager for the Virtualization Practice in the North Area and am responsible for enabling our teams to be successful implementing virtualization solutions. In my opinion, virtualization is the most exciting field in IT.  These solutions transform the way organizations deliver IT services. The virtualization solutions that Presidio implements transform IT infrastructures that make a big difference to our clients in how they do business. The real secret to successful adoption of virtualization is not necessarily the technology. It is the approach and design that is built around a very specific business function or an opportunity to improve it.
