CEO and President
Global vision and diversification started at early age for Stanley; living in three major continents before the age of 18 has given him a unique insight into inclusion leadership and global strategy development. He began his career as a humble cable puller and from that perspective, was able to see the entire spectrum of end-to-end business processes in managing information technologies, from the trenches up through broad IT management responsibilities. It has served to inform his view of customer service being the most important attribute of a professional service IT consulting firm.
Progressing through a variety of large companies and a host of technical certifications as an engineer and consultant before founding Netswitch, Stanley never lost sight of the importance of interpersonal relationships and service. Stanley has consistently placed client satisfaction above profitability and the result is an enormously successful IT consulting firm that enjoys long-term relationships with most of its clients, both in the US and abroad. Netswitch as a company reflects Stanley’s personal attributes and client service philosophy. It is the reason why Netswitch consistently ranks among the leaders in global Managed Service and Cloud Service Providers.
Stanley earned his Masters of Science degree in Telecommunications Management from Golden Gate University and his Bachelor’s degree in Finance & Real Estate, from San Francisco State University.
