Nerdio, a pioneer in Microsoft Azure IT automation and the definitive Azure solution for MSPs, today announced Scott Bechtold, former channel sales manager at CloudJumper and CEO of Agility IT, has been appointed General Manager of Sales.

“Having spent my career as an MSP building my own successful cloud business, as well as helping other MSPs build their own cloud businesses, I have experienced the industry’s unique challenges from multiple perspectives,” said Bechtold. “Whether just starting out in the cloud or looking for a better solution for your business, I came to Nerdio because I believe Nerdio for Azure is the best way for MSPs to build the most successful cloud business in Microsoft Azure. The technology’s reliability and ease of use is refreshing, and I am thrilled to help businesses discover how they can benefit from it.”

During his career at CloudJumper, Bechtold led sales efforts, dramatically expanding its base of IT service-provider partners. He previously served as president of Insource Technologies, Inc. for 11 years and most recently held the position of CEO for Agility IT over the past five years.

“The extensive industry experience and business relationships in the cloud service industry that Scott brings to the table, as well as his profound knowledge and understanding of how to build a successful cloud business, will bring immense value to the Nerdio team,” said Joseph Landes, Chief Revenue Officer at Nerdio. “Scott has seen the superior technology and abilities that Nerdio has to offer Azure customers and MSPs. His experience and expertise will help Nerdio further enable MSPs around the world to build successful and profitable cloud practices in Microsoft Azure.”

Bechtold’s primary focus at Nerdio will be to build upon the hyper-growth Nerdio is experiencing to connect with even more MSPs and accelerate their education and adoption of Nerdio for Azure. The exponential growth includes the recent release of Nerdio for Azure Core, a first-of-its-kind product enabling MSPs to offer Azure solutions while on the path to complete virtual desktop-centric IT environments in the cloud. Bechtold’s addition to the team reinforces Nerdio’s leadership position in the industry as a magnet for strong talent with the definitive Azure solution for MSPs. It also prepares to power the next phase of growth with the full integration of Windows Virtual Desktop into Nerdio for Azure on day one of the product’s general availability from Microsoft.
