Woodbridge, ON – July 4th, 2019 Third Octet shareholders unanimously selected Matthew Metelsky, CTO, for the CEO role effective July 2nd, 2019. The transition from previous incumbent Norrie Davidson, who passed away June 13th, to Matthew, is considered logical by the shareholder team. Matthew worked closely with Norrie over the past 3 years where, under her leadership, Third Octet experienced significant year over year growth. Matthew’s unrelenting drive for excellence in solution and service delivery for clients will be integrated across all Third Octet business units with the expectation that Third Octet’s record of high performance in service and revenue growth will continue.
“We are excited to formally have Matthew as our CEO” state founding partners Joe Peckford and Marc Toste.
Many of Matthew’s team leadership duties will be transitioned to Edward Mathewson, newly appointed as Director of Professional Services. Ed has been in the Citrix consulting space for over 20 years and in Information Technology for 30. Previously a Citrix Certified Instructor, Ed not only has extensive experience in training and leading, but also assessing, designing and implementing solutions for clients ranging in size from small office to enterprise.
“Ed has been successfully leading our team in architecting collaborative and innovative technology solutions that fit each individual customer’s needs over the past 14 months. The service framework won’t change so, for clients, the transition will be seamless. With Ed leading Professional Services, I am quite excited to now be in a role where I can focus on continuous improvement for client solutions, delivery and team performance” says Matthew Metelsky, CEO, Third Octet.
