As part of our continued commitment to work side by side with growing companies to help accelerate their technology evolution from the ground to the cloud, we are happy to announce that we have hired Sam Fields as our VP of Operations.
Fields officially joined the Netrepid team on January 6 after spending over a decade providing quality application services to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He brings an extensive background in technology service implementation and operations to Netrepid, and we are excited to have him on board as we continue to enhance and evolve our customer service focus.
Sam Fields has spent his information technology career consulting with local businesses and state government entities to provide quality application services. Sam brings his extensive background in technology service implementation and operation to Netrepid as Vice President of Operations to continue to enhance and evolve Netrepid’s already-exemplary customer service focus.
Sam Fields And His Professional Background Before Coming To Netrepid
Prior to joining Netrepid, Sam provided valuable application services leadership to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the Office of Administration, Office for Information technology. His most recent accomplishment streamlined the architecture of the Commonwealth’s electronic payment processing service at a significant taxpayer cost savings. For those efforts, he received an Outstanding Leadership and Innovation Award (Ollie) at the Pennsylvania Executive Leadership Forum in Harrisburg, PA on Dec 3, 2013.
Sam’s leadership and guidance are directly responsible for the implementation and success of the Commonwealth’s Enterprise SharePoint and Dynamics CRM services, among many others. His ability to architect and deliver standardized as well as customized technology services has proven to be valuable across all aspects of state government in Pennsylvania.
In 2009 when the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was passed by President Obama, Sam’s experienced view of application architecture enabled Pennsylvania to fulfill its federal transparency reporting requirements using existing technology with low-cost solutions. He lead the development of the systems that automated that reporting as well as the implementation of the state’s own GIS-enabled Recovery website that allowed PA citizens to see where the money was being spent in their own neighborhoods. He received a Governor’s Award for Excellence for his critical role in those efforts.
Over the years, Sam has been instrumental in designing and implementing secure, reliable, and affordable application services for most of the PA state government agencies. Sam is well known for providing expert information technology leadership and guidance and is looking forward to using his experience to help Netrepid to continue to be a premier technology service provider.
