VLCM celebrates 30th Anniversary

Press Release

March 5, 2013

“We’re thrilled to be celebrating our 30-year anniversary and appreciative of our employees that strive to deliver a superior customer experience and to our customers for their continued trust and loyalty,” said VLCM founder Richard Linton. “I truly believe that we succeed by bringing technology into the business planning process and aligning our customer’s vision with the right technologies and professional on-site service.”

In 1982, Linton and a business partner applied to be an authorized IBM dealer.  Their targets were farmers that they believed would need computers to run their center pivots used for watering crops.  Shortly after being named an IBM dealer, Linton bought the computer and technology side of the business and started VLCM. Since then, the company has grown from three employees to more than100, with Utah headquarters and offices in Idaho, Colorado, and Arizona.

To meet the growing demand of its services, VLCM has hired two key personnel, Gavin Fenton as director of business development and Fred Steinhorst as solutions architect.

Fenton has more than nine years of sales, management and business experience. Steinhorst has more than 12 years experience with all aspects of storage management and sales, including implementation, forecasting and day-to-day administration. In his role with VLCM, he will focus on pre-sales solution consulting and the entire datacenter from storage and networking to servers and virtualization.
