NEW YORK, November 8, 2022 – Award-winning IT systems integrator, CDI (Computer Design & Integration), has today announced immediate repositioning within their sales department by elevating Anthony Chianese, EVP, Sales, to lead all CDI Core sellers for the organization.
Over the past three years, CDI has experienced explosive growth. The firm has been named a top partner with leading technology providers across the secure, automated, software-defined hybrid cloud stack, won countless awards, successfully acquired and integrated six different companies into the organization while expanding their international presence, achieved ServiceNow Elite partner status and Salesforce Premier Partner, and continuously innovated their service catalog with more Anything-as-a-Service (XaaS) offerings. The sales team at CDI has, likewise, grown exponentially both organically and inorganically, and will now be led by Mr. Chianese.
“CDI is in hyper-growth mode, increasing our solutions capabilities and our team size. Strong leadership, culture, and a client-first mindset are keys to the realm,” said Jason Kalvesmaki, Chief Revenue Officer, CDI. “Anthony Chianese represents these attributes to the highest levels and is grounded with strong character. Consolidating all Core sellers under Anthony is a critical step in building a multi-billion-dollar company.”
Mr. Chianese will focus on scaling CDI’s award-winning Go-to-Market across all verticals and all geographies. With an increase in capabilities now available to CDI, Mr. Chianese will also look to build specialized teams best suited to develop and manage needs for specific business areas, such as IT solutions for Healthcare, Public Sector, Education, Financial Services, Media and more.
“I am incredibly excited to lead this talented team,” said Mr. Chianese. “CDI has seen tremendous success in recent years, and it is thanks to the best team in the industry – ranging all areas of the company. I am humbled by this opportunity to lead the Sales team and help drive increased value for our clients and partners.”
Mr. Chianese joined CDI in 2020 as Vice President of Sales & Strategic Alliances before becoming EVP of Sales in early 2022.
