CHARLOTTE, NC (NOVEMBER 15, 2018)—NorthState Technology Solutions, a secure cloud, Cybersecurity and IT solutions provider, has named Jim Guido as Chief Operating Officer. Guido formerly served as vice president of business development for NorthState Technology Solutions and will continue to be based out of Charlotte.
“We have an incredible team at NorthState Technology Solutions, and I look forward to working with everyone as we continue to evolve our company onto a national platform,” Guido said. “This company offers an unparalleled combination of IT solutions that businesses need and, at the same time, a high level of customer service that I find particularly refreshing in today’s fast-paced business environment.”
In the newly created position of Chief Operating Officer, Guido will work alongside NorthState Technology Solutions President Joel Lemke and the entire NorthState executive team in Charlotte, the Triad and Triangle to further execute the company’s growth strategy. Guido will report directly to NorthState Technology Solutions President Joel Lemke.

Earlier in his career, Guido was a senior engineer at Cisco and a network and security consultant for Piedmont Technology Group. He received a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Bridgeport in 1988.
