Christopher Messer

Chief Technology Officer

As Chief Technology Officer, Chris is a transformational and strategic IT leader who establishes company's technical vision and leads all aspects of the company's ongoing technological development.  In this role, he is responsible for overseeing all technical aspects of the company, while partnering with the Executive Management team to grow the company through the use of technological resources.

Chris advises organizations of all sizes on their technology strategies and helps develop custom IT roadmaps for private, public, and hybrid cloud deployments.  In addition, Chris oversees the technical teams responsible for key platforms at Coretelligent, including infrastructure (CoreCloud / CoreBDR), security (CoreArmor), project engineering, and the Principal Solutions Architecture team, who liaises with some of Coretelligent's top clientele.

With more than 15 years of experience encompassing network, server, storage and infrastructure design and implementation, Chris' passion for problem-solving led him to join Coretelligent in 2007 as a field engineer. He advanced to his current role in parallel with the company's accelerated growth, testimony to his significant technical contribution and leadership.

Chris' love for technology naturally comes into play outside of the office. He continues to design and build custom servers, PC's, and other tech devices in his home lab for fun.  Recently married, Chris enjoys traveling with his wife and two step-daughters to explore the New England seacoast in search of the perfect bowl of clam chowder.  Chris also enjoys camping, kayaking, hiking and mountain biking in his home state of New Hampshire, and when time permits, dusting off his golf clubs for a few rounds with friends.
