The biggest challenge we faced was finding the right clientele. We noticed that it was difficult to build a client base while offering the cloud, when many people didn’t even know what the cloud was yet. With trial and error, proper education of our staff and prospective clients, and improvements of our services, we were eventually able to help many companies in their journey to the cloud. It really is all about understanding your customer. You’re not just selling a product, you’re fixing a problem for your client. Approyo is a global cloud-centric solutions provider, specializing in SAP solutions and services. As a managed service provider, Approyo provides its clients with deployments,migrations, and upgrades of SAP HANA, SAP S/4HANA, or any SAP core instance.

We also placed no. 231 in IT Management, no. 9 in Milwaukee, and no. 40 in Wisconsin. As the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Approyo, it is my responsibility to lead my team in the right direction. I may have built this business, but my staff is what keeps it going. Being a guide for my staff is extremely important to me, which is why I offer any learning opportunities for them so they can not only progress their own professional careers, but add even more value to Approyo. It is extremely important to me that our customers are taken care of and understand the process from beginning to end. Even though I am at the head of the company, I stay heavily involved in the day-to-day operations, communicating with all staff, clients, and partners, discussing plans, and closing sales. The technology landscape is always evolving. With new discoveries and innovation in AI, blockchain, cloud, etc. we have more technology than ever before. The cloud computing market is growing like no other, projected to grow from $371.4 billion to reach $832.1 billion in 2025, according to global newswire. Approyo is just one of the companies that makes up this market. We contribute to the growth of the technology industry by providing services that use all of these technologies and more.
My vision for Approyo is to become a leading large enterprise trusted MSP company. I see us taking on more and more clients, thus adding more staff and just growing in every way possible. At the end of the day, my vision is to help those wanting to digitally transform their business, and as long as we are able to do that for our customers, I am happy. We stay ahead of our competitors by simply providing great service. Hiring the right staff with experience and every more potential for growth are what allow us to provide extraordinary service. We make sure that we stay up to date with any updates SAP releases and are constantly working to learn and grow in new ways. When we provide quick implementations, ease of communication, and simple roadmaps for our clients, they are more likely to recommend us to their own partner networks. Having great word of mouth is important in this day and age. We also are always on the lookout to expand our partner network. Partnering with other Solution providers allows us to give unique service offerings to clients.
As CEO and Chairman of Approyo, I oversee the day-to-day operations. It is my job to make sure that our clients are happy at all times. I communicate with all of my teams throughout all of our projects, ensuring that we are providing efficient service. As the CEO, it is an honor to be given any award, and Approyo has won many throughout the years. We have been named to the Inc 5000 list four times, the ACQ5 global awards three times, and have won multiple awards listing us as a top SAP solutions provider. I personally have won the Bravo! Entrepreneur & I.Q. Award from Milwaukee’s BizTimes and have been recognized as an innovative CEO multiple times, which is a great achievement. But the biggest achievement of my career is building this company from the ground up and watching the growth we have experienced. I am excited for the future and what it will hold. Work tends to be on my mind even when I go home at the end of every day, but I make sure to make time for my family. Traveling together as a family, whether it’s to our lake house, to Florida, or somewhere else in the world, we are able to make those memories that stick. I could describe myself in one word it would be “guide”. I try my best to guide my staff to be the best they can be, as well as guiding our clients to making better business decisions. Technology inspires me because the innovation is endless, and there are so many possibilities we have yet to even discover. I am always willing to help anyone with any questions or concerns they have when it comes to technology.
I can confidently say that my team is made up of motivated individuals who genuinely care about their jobs. All of those who have been hired on have proven that they are driven to provide amazing service and take responsibility for the success of our customers. I am blessed to have an amazing staff that care about the trajectory of this company as much as I do. We are already a global company, having staff throughout the U.S., Brazil, India, and the UK. We are also global in terms of our partner network and customers. In the future, I see us adding even more remote staff, adding more global partners and clients through countries we have never served before.
