We sat down with Chris Colapietro, Executive Vice President Technology & Marketing, to learn more about HighPoint Solutions.
Tell us a little about yourself.
As Executive Vice President of Technology & Marketing, I’m responsible for day-to-day operations of the Technology Business Unit (~$75M & 350 resources), which includes solution development, delivery, recruiting & sales. I’m also responsible for sales, marketing, and partner operations for all of HighPoint.
