Former VMware Executive Jonathan Butz Joins VertitechIT


HOLYOKE, MA March 6, 2017 — Having helped to shape the national healthcare platform strategy for one of the largest cloud and virtualization software companies on the planet, Jonathan Butz has joined Holyoke, Massachusetts-based healthcare consultancy VertitechIT as an Executive Project Officer (EPO).  Butz will lead engagements with large healthcare systems as the company continues to expand operations throughout the east coast and across the country.

As Healthcare Business Strategist for VMware, Inc., Butz was responsible for vision, messaging, and financial analysis for the company’s growth in the $40B vertical. “With the continued emphasis on optimization in all aspects of Healthcare, there is great opportunity to adopt new architectures that deliver greater capabilities at lower cost,” says Butz. “There’s also a continued need for new clinical applications that drive requirements for new platforms beneath them, many of which fall outside of traditional IT architectures.” Butz will report directly to VertitechIT CEO Michael Feld.

“Jonathan is recognized as a rising star in healthcare IT,” says Feld.  “Our job is to work side by side with CEOs and CIOs at these institutions at both the strategic and tactical level.  As an Executive Project Officer, Jonathan will help drive our approach to providing more technical services with less resources.”

Working at the executive level within a healthcare organization, EPOs oversee a collaborative Office of the CTO (oCTO), implementing VertitechIT’s proprietary Leverage IT© process. Working side by side with senior internal managers, the oCTO refines strategic directives and implements tactical solutions that make organizations more profitable and efficient.

Residing in the Philadelphia area, Butz will manage major healthcare engagements throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
