Three New Directors Join Our Technology Team

I'm excited to welcome three new directors to our technology team!
 
Starting from right to left, we have Bruce Cowart, our Director of PMO, who is responsible for project management across all of our development efforts. Bruce is a PMP with vast experience at DHL Latin America and Verizon. After only a couple of months on the job, he's already got all the entire management team sleeping better at night knowing that he's on top of our IT  deliverables.  
Next to him is Patricio Rocca, who is joining us as our Director of Development after several senior IT leadership positions with Travelocity. Patricio is now responsibility for our newly minted technology team based out of Buenos Aires and that already has over 35 programmers reporting to him. 
Last but certainly not least,is Marcelo Coelho, who comes to us from FoxSports where he was their Information Technology Lead. Marcelo is taking on the role of Director of Systems and is responsible for our infrastructure and internal helpdesk. If the site is down, now you know who to call ;)
Welcome to the team guys!!

    That would a great inclusion in the recruitement and it would be always nice to have some fresh blood in the staff. Thanks for the share.

    The human species' use of technology began with the conversion of natural resources into simple tools. The prehistoric discovery of how to control fire increased the available sources of food.

    Of course you people were already the best ever, and joining the three more good directors will add much more strength to your technology team. I had a friend of mine working along with you in your team so, I knew much about you guys. Anyway thanks for the share.
