This month, we’re excited to announce our co-founder, Trent Peters, is returning to Umbrella Managed Systems full time!
For the past three and a half years, Trent has juggled roles at both Umbrella and DataFile Technologies, where he served as Chief Information Officer. He was leading their IT, Compliance, and Research & Development teams. With Umbrella stepping into some big growth in 2018, Trent is returning to his roots and leading up some of our newest and most innovative efforts to provide the best IT services for our clients.
“I’m thrilled to be back at Umbrella full time,” Trent said. “It’s hard to believe that Heath and I started this company in my basement over 11 years ago, and it’s been incredible to be a part of it’s success. I look forward to focusing on continued growth and providing the best possible services to our clients.”
Trent’s roles will include leading up Umbrella’s Sales and Marketing, Proactive Operations, and General Operations teams, as well as serving as Virtual Chief Technology Officer (vCIO). As vCIO, Trent will not only be a technical resource for our clients, but a strategic business partner, building relationships and providing strategic direction. He will provide a strong understanding of our clients’ business, allowing our team to find IT solutions that support their success and goals.
A bit of history
Trent and business partner Heath Stover started Umbrella in 2007, and he has been an integral part of the Umbrella family. With his engineering expertise and wealth of IT and HIPAA knowledge, Trent has led the charge on many of Umbrella’s service initiatives. He served as the original architect for Umbrella’s Healthcare IT (HIT) program that made Umbrella a leading expert in this territory.
Trent loves all things Kansas City, including the Royals, the Chiefs and, of course, Kansas City BBQ! Trent enjoys spending his free time with his wife and family, and weekends are usually full attending soccer games and ice skating recitals for his two kids.
We are very happy to welcome Trent back home to Umbrella, and we look forward to a fantastic 2018 with him back at the helm!
