Apple Business Unit Director Bob Wambaugh Joins Milestone Technologies, Inc.

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/07/12 -- The anticipated release of the new iPad and growth of Apple in business only confirms that Silicon Valley-based IT solutions provider Milestone Technologies, Inc. (MILESTONE) is positioned to enable clients to succeed. Securely integrating iOS and Mac devices into company IT environments since 2010, MILESTONE's next move was bringing on Apple's Director of Worldwide Enterprise Customer Care, Bob Wambaugh, to run MILESTONE's Apple Business Unit (Apple Practice).

"As MILESTONE's business continues to grow we see tremendous demand for increasing our ability to provide iPads for business and integration of Apple technologies (both iOS and Mac) into companies' production IT environment where it can be managed securely with the right level of ongoing support. Bob's expertise and leadership at Apple with enterprise business customers adds significant experience and industry leadership to our team at MILESTONE," says Jim Glueck, COO MILESTONE.

Wambaugh's initial focus at MILESTONE is account planning and taking part in speaking engagements and demonstrations of Apple technologies for the enterprise Fortune 500 companies, covering MILESTONE's service offerings, which include iOS and Mac integration, deployment, service, support and training. Part of his decision to join the company was that he considers MILESTONE an excellent opportunity to provide business services and support to companies implementing Apple products into their businesses. Dr. Wambaugh will report directly to Jim Glueck, MILESTONE's Chief Operating Officer.

Originally joining Apple in 1990 as a Field Technical Trainer, Wambaugh held various positions from technical sales to technical support.

Dr. Wambaugh brings forward a diverse educational background with a Ph.D. in Instructional Systems, a Masters in Adult and Community Education and an undergraduate degree in Geo Science. He started his career as a middle school science teacher eventually landing at The Pennsylvania State University where he was Director of the Regional Computer Resource Center.
