Campbell comes to Blue Chip Tek from StackGeek, an OpenStack management consulting firm, where Campbell was Founder and CEO. In his 15-plus years in the IT industry, Campbell has founded four companies – including Zoto, Loggly and The Internet Shop – while serving in senior management at three others.
