Lanspeed: Nick Gianis to Head Sales and Marketing at I.T.-Managed Services Provider

Santa Barbara-based firm plans for aggressive growth in information technology services

Lanspeed, the Santa Barbara based I.T. managed services provider, has hired Nick Gianis to head sales and marketing for the company.

Gianis joined Lanspeed in October as vice president of sales and marketing, bringing with him more than 16 years of sales and management experience. During his tenure at ivpcare, a specialty pharmacy services company, the company became the largest privately held specialty pharmacy in the United States. He then went on to become a partner and chief sales officer at Life’s Building Blocks, a character education company.

With Lanspeed, Gianis will work with CEO Chris Chirgwin to create the sales and marketing infrastructure. Chirgwin has aggressive growth plans for the company in the next three to five years and said, “Nick has tremendous experience with building and growing companies and his hiring is a critical next step toward achieving our short- and long-term growth plans.”

Privately held Lanspeed has been providing information technology services for more than 25 years and has clients from Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
