A big thank you to all our sponsors, exhibitors and attendees. Cantech 2019 was a great success!
Since graduating from the University of Maryland with a degree in business, Steve has acquired more than 25 years of experience in the IT industry. After a successful tenure as a sales
representative for Harris Corporation, Steve became the Senior Vice President of Sales for Universal Data Consultants and later accepted the position as Senior Vice President when the company was acquired by GE Capital Network Services in 1996. After GE Capital Network Services was merged with GE IT Solutions, he left GE to form his own company, Bay Data Consultants. Bay Data Consultants was an e-business innovator which leveraged its core competencies and extensive partnerships to deliver complete solutions to its clients, whether traditional or .com organizations. In May of 2000, Bay Data Corporation was acquired by ITC DeltaCom. As a result of the merger Steve became Senior Vice President of eDeltaCom a 350,000 square foot Data Center and ebusiness service provider. With the telecommunications downturn during 2001 ITC DeltaCom opted out of the Data Center business. This allowed Steve to reacquire his integration partnerships, contracts and people and in October 2003, Steve merged his business with Optimus Solutions.
In 2007 Optimus Solutions created a new business unit, Optimus Consulting which is now
Corus360. In 2008, Softchoice Corporation acquired Optimus Solutions. Steve was
offered the position of Sr. Vice President of Business Solutions, Architecture and Delivery.
The acquisition significantly enhanced Softchoice's ability to provide advanced hardware
technology solutions and services, including internetworking, server consolidation, and
storage solutions to U.S. mid-market, enterprise and public-sector organizations.
As CEO of Corus360, Steve’s intense focus is to bring the company’s divisions under one
message and vision to help clients solve business problems, mitigate risk and reduce
capital expense with the expansion of recovery, cloud, advanced technology and staffing
