In this position, Vince pursues his passion for disruptive technology, partner strategies, and connecting organizations to deliver results during this age of rapid digital transformation.

Prior to founding Cloud Wave Partners, Vince advanced and delivered three successful transformations. As Microsoft’s GM for US Public Sector partner sales, he led a $4.6B channel business during the transition to a cloud services model. As VP of General Dynamix Itronix, he triumphantly launched a new business segment, developed GTM, channel, and sales procurement, and forged a key partnership that resulted in the successful divestiture of the business. At Zebra Technologies he developed the value proposition and exponentially grew a new business.
