FORT MYERS — Buddy Martin has been promoted from COO to president of Entech, a Fort Myers-based IT managed services and support firm.
A 20-year veteran of the company, Martin began his career at Entech right out of college as the firm's office administrator — with no IT experience, according to a statement. Rising through the ranks, he became Entech’s COO in 2011. In that position he worked closely with CEO Jake Spanberger and now-retired founder Martin Haas to expand the company’s geographic footprint and client roster while “achieving industry best-in-class service metrics,” the release states. As president, Martin will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of Entech and will the company’s leadership team.
“Buddy has been key to our organization over the past two decades, and our success today is due in great part to his leadership, work ethic, and industry acumen,” Spanberger says in the statement. “Plus, he is just a genuinely great guy to work with. I look forward to our continued collaboration in advancing our growth strategy and cultivating our industry-leading workplace culture.”
Martin, a graduate of the University of Florida, is well known throughout the national IT managed services industry as a thought leader and frequent guest speaker at industry events and webinars.
In addition to its Fort Myers headquarters, Entech has offices in Bradenton and Naples. It provides best-in-class enterprise-level support, project solutions and strategic technology consulting to small and medium-sized businesses.
