In 1998, Chris started Simple Network Solutions (SNS), a Microsoft partner focused on enabling small businesses via Microsoft Small Business Server and related Microsoft solutions. As Microsoft public cloud solutions emerged and Office 365 matured, Chris decided early to shift his business and guide his customers to the cloud. Recognizing the importance of application development and SharePoint expertise in Office 365, Chris forged a partnership with Eastridge Technology and the two companies merged in late 2011. Eastridge Technology is a Cloud Champions Club member with one Gold Competency, six Silver Competencies, and over 100 active customers leveraging Microsoft public cloud solutions.
