Mitchell, a provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the property and casualty claims and collision repair industries, has announced that its chief technology officer, Erez Nir, has been nominated as a finalist for San Diego Magazine‘s Top Tech Exec Awards, which recognize the most outstanding information technology executives in San Diego.
Nir’s nomination emerges from his role in driving Mitchell’s advanced IT strategy and infrastructure, helping the company be one of the fastest growing software and information service providers in San Diego for the auto physical damage, auto casualty and workers compensation claims markets.
"Mitchell congratulates Erez, whose technology vision and innovations ensure our software solutions are infused with the latest technology to support our commitment to empowering better outcomes for our clients and business partners," said Alex Sun, Mitchell president and chief executive officer. "Leadership such as Erez’s helps us deliver on our mission to help our clients restore their customers’ lives after a challenging event."
Under Nir’s technology leadership, Mitchell deploys Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), offering private cloud software solutions which leverage the company’s lean/agile strategic initiative. Lean/agile principles enable Mitchell to continuously accelerate time to market for large-scale software solutions development and release. With Nir’s guidance, Mitchell recently completed a significant data center infrastructure initiative which provides enhanced hosting and recovery capabilities for the company and its clients. In 2011, Nir led the virtualization of more than 90 percent of Mitchell’s servers into a private cloud computing architecture, provided snapshot and fast site-to-site replication capabilities in the company’s upgraded storage infrastructure, and implemented a failover design using Site Recovery Manager (SRM) with floating virtual environments.
"It’s an honor to be nominated for the prestigious San Diego Magazine Top Tech Exec Awards, and an honor to work with a company that is so dedicated to IT innovation while employing hundreds of local talent in the field," said Nir. "As an IT innovator for Mitchell, it’s inspiring to connect individuals and organizations through integration, collaboration and teamwork. Mitchell’s commitment to IT excellence ensures our efforts will continue to positively impact the local economy, in addition to client business performance."
Winners of the 2012 San Diego Magazine Top Tech Exec Awards will be announced on May 17, 2012 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds event.
