Chris Konow named CleanSlate COO

Chris Konow joined the CleanSlate team about six years ago, and formerly served as the VP of Consulting Services. Konow came to CleanSlate to start the consulting practice in hopes of driving new business for the company. Since his start, CleanSlate has more than doubled their headcount and revenues continue to grow by 50% year over year.

Chris Konow was unanimously voted on Tuesday, February 18th to become CleanSlate’s Chief Operating Officer, or COO, effective immediately.

“Starting a new initiative and seeing it come to fruition and grow has been the most rewarding part of working at CleanSlate. Seeing new faces in the office embodying the company’s lively culture is something to look forward to each day.” Konow says that his focus on strengthening CleanSlate’s operations, sales, and marketing has attributed to the rapid growth; all indications lead to continued steady growth for the foreseeable future.

“The leadership Chris has shown over the past few years has enabled us to scale our consulting practice to where it is today. We expect to continue to see his team expand and grow in 2020 and beyond.” – John Loveys, CleanSlate President and CEO

More executive leadership was needed to continue to foster the growth of the company, and a unanimous vote agreed that Chris Konow would be the right fit to be CleanSlate’s Chief Operating Officer. His partnership with CEO, John Loveys, continues to accelerate the leadership and direction of CleanSlate, as the company prepares to move into a new office in June 2020.

CleanSlate has built a strong brand and reputation in the Indianapolis area, and intends to continue to grow its clientele in this market, as well as penetrate other marketplaces outside of the Indianapolis area. The company’s expansion has been fostered by its growing consulting and software partnerships with AWS, Salesforce, Mulesoft, and many others.

The future for CleanSlate is endless with new opportunities knocking on every door and CleanSlate is very lucky to have the leadership and guidance from its new COO, Chris Konow.

At CleanSlate, we pride ourselves in being a leader in digital transformation. We work with cloud platforms such as AWS to modernize our customers’ applications and deliver ROI.

The lightweight containers run simultaneously through on-premise, public cloud or private cloud at lightning speed.

We are excited to have a CleanSlate as a Docker partner. Their deep knowledge and skills in the areas of digital transformation, cloud and application migration make them a strong partner.
