Apptix CEO Lands on SmartCEO's Smart100 List
February 25, 2010
Apptix, a provider of hosted Microsoft Exchange e-mail, Microsoft SharePoint and business VoIP services, announced today CEO Dave Ehrhardt has been included in Washington SmartCEO Magazine’s 2010 Smart100 list.
According to Apptix, Smart100 CEOs are recognized for leadership, strategic vision, and character in running a business. An independent committee selects CEOS for inclusion from a variety of industries, including information technology, government contracting, consulting, financial services, and video production.
Specifically, Ehrhardt is being recognized for his strategy and two-year leadership to rebuild every aspect of Apptix. As CEO, he helped lead a series of initiatives – including integrating previously acquired entities, divesting non-strategic and non-performing divisions, standardizing and consolidating the company’s technical infrastructure, and establishing a culture of operational and service excellence to turn the company around. Under his leadership, Apptix has turned into a source for mission-critical, cloud-based communication and collaboration services, the company said.
“I am honored to be recognized along with some of Greater Washington’s brightest CEOs,” Dave Ehrhardt, president and CEO of Apptix, said. “This award was earned by the entire team at Apptix that has worked so diligently to transform the company. We’re now well positioned to evolve into new markets and handle accelerated growth.”
The Smart100 CEOs will be profiled in the 100-page annual supplement this spring. The full list is available on www.smartceo.com.
