iIT-logo-medindependenceIT has made some changes to its leadership team with MSP cloud services pioneer Jim Lippie promoted to CEO and corporate development veteran

Seth Bostock as president and COO.

iIT’s flagship offering, the Cloud Workspace Suite, is widely recognized as the industry’s most comprehensive channel-only Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution, delivering recurring revenue for VARs, ISPs and MSPs.

Lippie previously served as iIT’s executive vice president of business development; Bostock recently served as iIT’s executive vice president of corporate development. Together they have led an integrated channel-only sales model that has shown a year over year partner growth of more than 200 percent for iIT.

Lippie joined iIT in 2013 from Thrive Networks, where he served as CEO and president. He successfully built Thrive to a top 30 MSP company and later brokered its sale to Staples. Bostock joined iIT in 2011 following a successful consulting career in designing and implementing business improvement strategies and positioning. Shortly after arriving at iIT, Bostock led the product development of the Cloud Workspace Suite, the acquisition of Veddio and forged significant partner agreements with EarthLink and TeamLogic IT.
