Windward IT Solutions, a niche consultancy focused on empowering our customers to design, deploy, and manage both traditional and next generation global networks and data-centers, announced a reorganization of its corporate structure. Windward will now support three primary vertical business units focused on Financial Service and Insurance, Communication Service Providers, and Government Solutions. This reorganization allows Windward to leverage the technical and vertical domain experience based on over 250 clients and 2000 projects successfully delivered on over the past two decades. As well, this reorganization allows Windward to invest more in vertical market solutions and build deeper, more intimate relationships with clients as a trusted advisor to bring about transformational change.

“Our reorganization comes at a critical junction in the company’s over 17 year history,” said Sean McDermott CEO and Founder of Windward. “The increased traction we have gained over the years in telecommunications, financial, and Government has allowed us to sharpen focus and develop a team of trusted advisors. This new structure brings exciting advantages to better focus all our resources on key markets that we are strong in, increase alignment of our Solutions and services to market-based business needs, streamline our management overhead, and provide more autonomy to both sales and delivery activities based on specific client needs.”

“This new approach to the market is very exciting, as it allows for the sales and delivery lifecycle to be uniquely tied together by a keen team of individuals supporting each Business Unit and will drive collaboration, a key component of Windward’s core values. Through this new model, Windward will advance proficiency, innovation, and the customer experience,” said Mafa Amr, Managing Director for the Communications Service Providers business unit.

In addition to the organization realignment, Windward announced a new logo and launch of the new visual brand identity. The new logo and visual brand represents Windward through simple and clean typography, and exemplifies the tagline of Strategic Thinking, Real-world Results and helping customers move “into a position of vantage.” Windward’s brand builds upon the long tradition of delivering highly specialized solutions meeting key business objectives.
