Former SMBiTPro CEO David Vidos Joins Hosted Network as Partner Development Manager
Fri, 1st Sep 2023

Hosted Network, a leading provider of cloud and telco services, recently announced the appointment of David Vidos as their new Partner Development Manager. This marks a significant step for the company as Vidos brings over 25 years of experience in the IT industry to the role.

In his new position, Vidos will focus on nurturing relationships with key partners, contributing to the company's growth, and playing a crucial part in its strategic expansion. Before joining Hosted Network, he served as the General Manager and Chief Product Architect for the Internal Database and Client Portals at Techno Group. Vidos’ career in IT began as a technician and later led him to establish his own IT support business, which he managed for 17 years before selling it strategically three years ago.

"I don't just see this as a vendor-customer relationship. True partnership goes beyond transactions; it's about mutual success and growth," says Vidos, reflecting on his new role. "My MSP background has given me a unique perspective on what partners truly need – someone invested in their success."

David Vidos was the first CEO of SMBiT Professionals and has been deeply involved in the industry, a history that further enhances his fit for the role. During his search for the right vendor to align with, Vidos shared his clear set of criteria: "I wasn’t looking for just any vendor; I aimed to align with a vendor that met the criteria I look for in a partner during my MSP days. This involved identifying vendors that offer innovative products or services to enhance the market's current offerings." He emphasized the importance of a shared commitment to customer experience, stating, "It’s important that service delivery and support teams can stand behind their commitments."

When asked about what he will uniquely bring to Hosted Network, Vidos highlights, "One way I can help is to bring an outside perspective, someone that can challenge the status quo. In many cases it takes someone outside your business to help you see things you have been blinded to.”

Ben Town, CEO of Hosted Network, expressed enthusiasm about the appointment, saying, "We are excited to welcome David Vidos to our team as the Partner Development Manager. His extensive experience as an MSP owner and his dedicated work within the industry make him the perfect fit for this role. We believe his insights and skills will further solidify our commitment in bringing exceptional cloud and telco experience to our MSP partners.”

Vidos’ appointment serves as a strategic move for Hosted Network, aligning with their mission to deliver exceptional service and products. His extensive background and focus on true partnership are expected to contribute significantly to the company’s growth and success.
