Dataprise Announces Steve Lewis as CEO
ROCKVILLE, MD (July 28, 2020) -
Dataprise, a nationally recognized IT managed services provider and portfolio company of Trinity Hunt Partners, has named industry veteran Steve Lewis as Chief Executive Officer. The announcement comes following the long-planned retirement of founder and former CEO David Eisner, who will remain a strategic advisor on the company’s Board.
Lewis has over 30 years of experience building leading technology businesses, including leadership positions at All Covered, Teneros, and Booz Allen & Hamilton, and Board roles at Axcient and PC Helps. Notably, Lewis was the former CEO of All Covered, the largest IT managed services provider nationally, leading that company through over 20 add-on acquisitions. Lewis was also affiliated with Service Leadership where he consulted for leading MSPs on strategy and M&A. He was previously on the Board of Dataprise before receiving the CEO role.
“Steve’s experience leading and consulting for the top companies in the managed services industry make him the perfect fit to lead Dataprise going forward,” said Blake Apel, Partner at Trinity Hunt Partners. “We would also like to thank founder David Eisner as he transitions to the Board, after spending 25 years successfully building Dataprise from an idea into one of the largest and most successful companies in the industry.”
“I could not be more excited to join Dataprise because it is a terrific foundation and platform to build the industry leading partner of choice for strategic buyers of IT in the mid-market, who are seeking an unfair competitive advantage through IT,” said Lewis. “We will continue to scale the business through organic initiatives and add-on acquisitions while providing the same best-in-class service to which Dataprise clients are accustomed.”
“Steve is an industry luminary and we are excited to bring him into this role,” said David Eisner, founder and former CEO of Dataprise. “I can’t think of a better leader to help us scale for the future.”
