We’re excited to announce Mark Nelson as our VP of Managed Services at 3Cloud! In this role, Mark will lead our Managed Services practice and drive the growth of this key division of 3Cloud’s business.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Mark as VP of Managed Services. He has stepped into a pivotal role and we’re excited to see him bring his knowledge and experience to deliver excellent experiences for our clients, and to drive the growth of our Managed Services business,” said Matt Morse, COO of 3Cloud.

Mark comes to us with a deep background in consulting and managed services. He led the creation and growth of West Monroe Partners’ award-winning Managed Services practice—which ultimately grew to more than 125 people—and shepherded that team’s spinoff into Ascend Technologies. Prior to West Monroe Partners, Mark held technology leadership roles at Arthur Andersen and BearingPoint. He spent nine months serving as interim CIO for a client in the futures trading industry, and that experience was an eye-opener to the opportunity to deliver managed IT services that mid-market firms really need. He is a lifelong resident of Illinois and attended Indiana University.

“I was impressed with the culture and strategy of 3Cloud’s leadership and the capabilities of the 3Cloud team,” Mark states. “3Cloud has a strong Managed Services foundation to support our clients as they evolve on their journey with Azure.  I look forward to building on our current Managed Services offering and continuing to expand our capabilities to meet the changing needs of our clients and to be the premier Managed Services Provider for Microsoft Azure customers.”

As the cloud is forever changing, with new updates emerging daily, companies can quickly fall behind. 3Cloud’s Managed Services practice has the tools, processes, and IP to optimize our clients’ spend and performance and ensure they stay on the leading edge. Our Managed Services team monitors and manages client’s environment to proactively mitigate problems, contain costs and get the maximum performance and availability of their systems. 3Cloud is one of only 55 Azure Expert MSPs in the world.
