York, according to a press release, had been serving as a board member at Clearwater-based Vology, while Torres was the firm’s COO and CFO from 2007 to 2016, during which time he helped grow revenues from $17 million to more than $175 million. Torres returned to Vology in October 2019. 

York, the release states, is a veteran IT services and support executive who enjoyed a decades-long career at IBM before leading a series of private equity-owned firms through turnarounds, transformations and reinventions. He takes over the CEO role from Barry Shevlin, a co-founder of Vology.  

"We are committed to becoming an employee-led company,” York states in the release. “While this is an exciting day for me and Steve, we have an impressive team supporting us, with a commitment to the employee experience. Vology has a strong technology services history, so we believe by focusing on the employee experience we will be able to better serve our clients.”
