Today, T2’s Chairman and CEO Mike Simmons appointed Adam Blake as the organization’s President. Blake, who currently serves as Chief Operating Officer, will begin this new leadership role immediately with his title shifting to President and COO. Simmons will stay on as Chairman and CEO.
This move comes as T2 has continued to grow, named to both the Indianapolis Business Journal’s Fastest-Growing Companies and the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 lists in 2015. T2 has over 260 employees, offices in Indianapolis and Vancouver and more than 1,100 clients across North America. Blake’s experience in scaling business as well as developing and adopting processes is an asset to the company.
“Adam will have primary responsibility for all customer-related activities,” Simmons said. “He will ensure effective collaboration in the work delivered by our engineering, product management, sales, professional services and support teams.”
A Midwest native and Purdue University graduate, Blake came back to Indy and started at T2 in early 2015. He has worked more than 20 years in the technology industry, most recently at NCR Corporation, a global leader in consumer transaction technologies, where he served as Vice President and General Manager for the Department and Specialty Retail Industry. In one short year at T2, he has been instrumental in improving enterprise processes and customer support.
“I am honored and grateful to be asked to serve in this exciting role because of the team I get to work with—incredibly smart people with unmatched technical and industry knowledge,” Blake said. “We have great opportunities ahead of us.”
As President, Blake will focus on the day-to-day operation of the company, continuing his work to improve the customer experience and product quality. As CEO, Simmons will center his attention on T2’s strategic vision and the company’s further growth.
