Dave Taddei, a 20+ year entrepreneur, Founder and CEO of Integress, a technology services company had a long history of running a successful business. The business had moved through several focus areas throughout the years, including custom software development, software products, and large-scale project work in financial services and other industries.
In 2016, Dave set out on a mission to strategically focus the organization on a technology growth path with longer-term objectives of a merger or sale of the business for continued growth. This required different leadership skills and strategic planning compared to the prior years of Integress success.
- Defining the 3-5 year strategic plan
- Aligning all customers and business focus with the strategic plan
- Build a new sales & marketing capability for the business
- Create technology differentiators in a crowded tech services market
- Identify potential technology acquirers
After several months of researching options, Dave established an Advisory Board consisting of three ELAB Advisors that had built and sold businesses in technology services. Dave and the Advisory Board set out to define the strategic plan and identify opportunities for growth and value creation. This led to an approach of focusing on cloud-based-analytics, a rapidly growing area of the technology market as well as the build-out of technology accelerators and market specific quick-start business solutions.
In 2021, after several years of successfully transforming and growing the Integress business, an ELAB Advisor introduced Dave to AllCloud, a cloud services firm looking to extend their data analytics practice in the United States. This introduction led to a strategic acquisition and established AllCloud’s significant cloud data analytics presence in the United States. In 2022, AllCloud continues its success on a global scale, and Dave continues to lead the high growth AllCloud data analytics practice in North America!
