Kansas Tech Veteran Mark Galyardt Joins Novacoast
Novacoast, an IT professional services, development, and managed services company, announced today the acquisition of Mark Galyardt, former President of XIOSS, a data solutions firm based in Florida. Novacoast is thrilled to be joining with Mark and begin working to enhance our presence in the southeastern United States.
Novacoast CEO Paul Anderson says this will allow Novacoast to continually grow and develop its offerings in the cybersecurity industry.
"Adding Mark to Novacoast makes this a very special day for us," says Anderson. "Mark's business development experience in the technology sector with Fortune 500 companies will strengthen our selling capabilities."
Mark Galyardt, a founder of XIOSS, is excited to be joining with Novacoast, a company that values customer success as much as he does.
"Novacoast impressed me with their history and vision as shared with me by CEO, Paul Anderson, at a tech conference recently. That perception has only grown as I have had the pleasure in having further discussions with President, Janice Newlon, Chief Revenue Officer, Darin Sanders, and the VP of Sales, Randy Bender."
"My background has been focused on large, complex enterprise accounts so I cannot think of a better place to expand my knowledge to benefit customers, contacts, and many friends I have had the pleasure of serving over the past 30 years in the technology field."
Mark's family has a long history in the state of Kansas where Novacoast is headquartered. Mark currently serves on the Southern Methodist University Alumni Board after 21 years on the SMU Cox School of Business Alumni Board of Directors. Mark served 16 years on the Board of Trustees for the Kansas State University Foundation and serves as a mentor to business major students at Kansas State University.
XIOSS provided cybersecurity solutions with emerging technologies as early as 2008, with Galyardt as president. "I am thrilled to join Novacoast and work with such an accomplished team with fantastic leadership and vision. I have been very impressed with their focus on leveraging technology in ways that best assists their clients in helping achieve outstanding results."
Anderson is looking forward to working with a likeminded leader and collaborate on enhancing the Novacoast team. "I met with Mark Galyardt and was immediately impressed with his skillset. Mark is going to be a tremendous addition to the Novacoast family."
