Acumen I.T. Enhances Business Applications and Storage Solutions Staff

(Greenville, SC: March 3, 2010) – Acumen I.T., a Greenville-based technology company, has strengthened its technology management with the addition of three new employees. Clifton Dunaway has joined Acumen as Business Applications Manager, and Kelly Laughton and Stacy Anthony have joined the company as Storage Solutions Consultants.

Dunaway is charged with assisting Acumen’s customers in implementing the most efficient business and industrial applications in order to improve their overall productivity. Clifton brings more than 25 years of experience in the manufacturing and IT industries. Previously, he worked with Synesis International as a Senior Systems Consultant, where he served as the Database and SharePoint administrator and also served as the sole Database Administrator (DBA) for Extended Stay Hotels. He is currently being certified in Activplant, which has helped many industrial plants improve their productivity.

Laughton previously served as an IT sales executive and CIO where she helped to transform organizations using technology as a business driver. She worked as Information Technology Director for Henderson County Government for eight years. Prior to that, she consulted on legal and library automation software and served as a representative for Inmagic Inc. and Summation software, providing sales and services to businesses and law firms throughout the greater Los Angeles area.

Anthony began her career more than 13 years ago with UUNET and has since been a successful business developer driving high-profile sales. Most recently, her position with TW Telecom in the Greenville Market allowed her to cultivate a new market and increase the TW Market Share by 500%.

Laughton and Anthony will work closely with Acumen’s customers to assist them in creating a road map for their business by either revamping their current storage architecture or helping them to implement one from the start.

“The experience and wealth of knowledge our new team members bring to Acumen positions us well for the future as we help our customers grow and enhance their business applications and storage solutions,” says David Pence, president of Acumen. “We’re proud to have them join our team.”
