Congratulations, Rick! Toys for Kids Founder and dear friend of RedCloud, Rick Rizzs was recently named the 425 Citizen of the Year, a well deserved honor! All of us at RedCloud send a HUGE round of applause for all he’s done to support children in our community and specifically the partnership and opportunity he’s afforded to us to make an impact by his side.
Joining our team back in January of 2020, Andrew Buswell, joined RedCloud as Senior Consultant, jumping right into his role as the lead Project Manager for his client’s large migration project. A United States Marine Corps Veteran, Andrew joins our team with not only a strong dedication to teamwork and leadership, but also with years of experience in project management, event management and business strategy. We were lucky to find a moment to chat with Andrew about his experience on our team so far.
You may have read or heard about our special community project this year, a full year of support to Solid Ground’s Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing as part of our ongoing dedication to non-profit partners focused on education and empowering the success of local youth. While the program kicked off with our donation of new technology to support remote learning during Covid (tablets, Microsoft Office software and mic headsets), we’re also challenging our team to get creative and continue sharing the love by showing support all throughout 2021. And, we’re thrilled to say that the support continues!
We’re excited to kick off Q2 with news of RedCloud’s acquisition of BuzzBee, a strategic technology marketing and communications firm based in Seattle. BuzzBee has more than two decades of experience developing strategy and implementing communications and marketing plans for some of the industry's best brands such as Amazon, EMC, Microsoft, Intel, HP, AMD, Concur, adding a strong set of skills and capabilities to RedCloud’s existing offerings.
