Question: When did you decide you wanted to be an entrepreneur?

Vosk: Starting my own business was something that was burning inside me for a long time while I was working in a variety of IT jobs on the corporate side for Pepsi, Mutual of New York and others. But the tipping point came in early 2003 when I was laid off for the second time, as companies began to outsource IT services and drastically cut their IT staff in an effort to reduce employee overhead. I knew that was the moment for me to give it a shot, ride the outsourcing wave and start my own firm. It was the best professional decision I ever made and I have never looked back.

Q: Why did you start this business?

Vosk: Helping organizations develop innovative solutions to their business problems is what I love to do. I have over 35 years of technology experience, predominantly in the supply chain industry. The foundation of my career was at PepsiCo, where I developed software in the early ’80s to track the sale and promotion of all beverage products sold through Pepsi-managed franchises. While at TNT Express in the early ’90s — the global business delivery service similar to FedEx and UPS — I was responsible for all of IT in the Americas and implemented the very first barcode scanning in their airport hubs. As director of IT at Mutual of New York (MONY), I was responsible for their operations, and learned a very valuable lesson that was applicable to the supply chain industry — you’re only as strong as your weakest link.
