Opex Technologies is thrilled to congratulate Ben Thornton on his recent promotion from VP of Technology to CTO. Since joining Opex in 2017, Ben has grown his experience in IT and has become an integral member of the Opex team.
“It’s been fantastic to bring my experience as a client and engineer to the Opex team and pair it with the wealth of experience that Opex has from the provider space.”
-Ben Thornton, CTO Opex Technologies
As CTO, Ben will continue to guide Opex in technology direction and strategy, and take the lead in the technology and engineering space.
“With this new role, I’ll be working to bring that same level of excellence to our engineering group,” Thornton said. “We want our clients to know that when they select Opex as their Trusted Advisor, they are getting industry leading advice and council from initial whiteboarding and roadmaps all the way through implementation and beyond.”
Ben has a passion for solving problems for our clients, and he is excited to be able to bring that passion to the table each and every day in the CTO role.
“Two of the things in life that make me feel the most fulfilled are helping people and solving problems,” Thornton said. “I love that I can do both every day in this role.”
Not only is Ben a valuable problem-solver, but while at Opex, he has used his skills to help grow and build the project management and operations team.
“Over the past two years we have invested heavily in building out our project management and operations team, led by Geri Smith, into one that makes a genuine difference for our clients and their implementation and support experience.”
Ben is currently bringing this same enthusiasm in building and strengthening his own team. Both Opex and Ben are excited that his team is expanding most recently with the addition of Jon Sternstein as security advisor. We look forward to growing this awesome team! Stay tuned for more updates.
