DETROIT, MICHIGAN April 15, 2015 / - FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest growing provider of IT Turnaround and Leadership Services, has announced that recognized cloud pioneer, Bob Breitman, has joined the firm's Detroit office.

A seasoned technology executive, Bob Breitman spent the last 12 years as CEO of a Michigan-based IT managed services/cloud services provider, where he led development of CloudAny, a leading channel-based white-label cloud solution. Previously, Mr. Breitman served as CIO for The Gates Group, a world leader in industrial engineering and manufacturer of power transmission belts and a premier global manufacturer of fluid power products. In this role, he had global responsibility for twelve companies worldwide. Additionally, Bob spent more than 12 years serving clients as a principal with EDS.

Tim McCracken, Chairman and CEO of Fortium Partners states: "Cloud strategy is one of the hottest issues facing technology executives today, yet professionals with subject matter expertise in this area are scarce. We have known for quite some time the market would be seeking direction in their infrastructure life-cycle management and application strategy with strong cloud consideration and were early to act upon it. We are very pleased to have Bob Breitman join our team. He is a recognized pioneer in the most effective uses of the cloud, and his participation will add a tremendous amount of value and context as our clients navigate this important terrain."

Bob Breitman comments: "The Cloud will be the backbone of IT models for years to come. It gives company executives an opportunity to move part or all of IT to a safer, faster, and more efficient environment. But developing the right strategy and making the right decisions isn't automatic. Fortium is committed to provide the expert guidance its clients need over the long haul, and they do it with more passion and commitment than I've seen anywhere in my career. I'm pleased to have the opportunity to focus on this all-important topic while surrounded by many of the world's top technology leaders."
