Philadelphia Business Journal Names Xtium CTO ‘Top IT Innovator’

Xtium, Inc., a leading enterprise software and solutions company providing managed cloud hosting, online backup and virtual disaster recovery services, today announced that its Chief Technology Officer, Tim Vogel, was named a “Top IT Innovator” by the Philadelphia Business Journal, as part of the journal’s “2013 Top IT Pros Awards.” He will be honored at a celebratory awards luncheon on Thursday, May 9, 11:00am – 2:00pm at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia.

As one of Xtium’s co-founders, Vogel grew the company from a small technology consulting firm in 2004 into a fully managed services provider focused on virtual hosting and disaster recovery in 2007. Under his leadership, Xtium became one of the first companies to offer virtual cloud hosting services, before the term “cloud” was widely used.

Vogel also helped Xtium win its first multi-year, multi-million dollar deal in 2007, in which the technology he built helped support the customer’s IT operations, growth and acquisitions. Since then, he has led the Xtium team to drive business efficiencies and competitive advantages for a number of small- to mid-sized companies. His innovative approach to cloud computing allows companies to transfer the complexity and responsibility of infrastructure management to partners like Xtium, which enables the organizations to focus on their core competencies instead of managing their IT infrastructure.

In regards to the Top IT Pros Awards selection process, the Philadelphia Business Journal states, “We’re recognizing those leaders whose roles have evolved from miners of communication systems and computers to indispensable strategic advisors and operations experts. These leaders have their head in the cloud, are social, and constantly innovate to capture competitive advantage. They also defend against cyber security issues to protect both the company and its customers.”

Vogel said, “I’m honored to achieve this prestigious award from the Philadelphia Business Journal. I look forward to continuing to help organizations benefit from virtualization, cloud and new technologies in the future.”
