DALLAS, Texas, June 9, 2020 – AVIO Consulting, a software consulting firm that specializes in accelerating digital evolution in large enterprises, recently received an investment from Salesforce Ventures and their Consultant Trailblazer Fund. The fund provides the next generation of cloud consulting companies and digital agencies with the capital required to build and scale their Salesforce services capabilities for the future.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as a valued partner by Salesforce Ventures in such a tangible way," says Brandon Dean, president of AVIO Consulting. "With the investment, we plan to accelerate growth in our delivery capabilities while also expanding our geographic focus outside of the southern region."
AVIO’s rapid growth has seen them open two new remote offices, in Denver and Oklahoma City in the past six months. This expansion will accommodate this growth of their overall business and their MuleSoft practice in particular.
In addition, AVIO has created a MuleSoft bootcamp that utilizes existing training courses and augments those with exercises and content created by AVIO. The bootcamp, designed by Director of Talent and Development, Greg Hughlett, reskills, and upskills developers so that they are project-ready with MuleSoft skills and consulting skills upon completion. Hughlett was promoted to this position to address the dearth of qualified developers, and 21 developers have graduated from the program over nine months.
“Greg has spent more than three decades in technical leadership at large enterprises and as a consultant,” says Adam DesJardin, AVIO’s Chief Technology Officer. “His breadth of experience and domain expertise make him uniquely qualified to mentor and enable new members of the AVIO team." Adam DesJardin, CTO.
