PHOENIX, Ariz. (Apr. 6, 2021) -- Adopt Technologies (, a Phoenix Ariz.-based leader in cloud computing services for small to medium-sized businesses, today announced its CEO Brett Helgeson has been named one of the Top 25 Managed Services CEOs of 2021. Helgeson joins 24 other CEOs recognized for their leadership accomplishments.

These CEOs and the firms they lead provide businesses across industries with the most advanced and reliable technology solutions on an on-going basis. They come from varied backgrounds; some have a long-standing experience in IT managed services that began early in their career, others found their way to their current position through a less traditional path. According to The IT Services Report, “One thing unifies these executives, and that’s their commitment to their customers.” Offering services spanning overall IT management, workflow improvement, remote monitoring, cloud migration, help desk support, and more, “these leaders have maintained a dedication to innovation, pioneering processes so they can continually bring value to their clients.”

Helgeson, has demonstrated a unique ability to lead an organization through constant change in the ever-evolving technology and business environments. In his words: “None of this is possible without the incredible team at Adopt. Like pretty much every business in every industry, we had to quickly adapt to the pandemic to protect and support our team and clients. I always knew our client partnerships were strong; however, I didn’t know how incredible the Adopt Technologies business ecosystem was. We had multiple clients volunteer to pay multiple months in advance Adopt Technologies so that we could help our struggling clients who were heavily impacted by the pandemic and business restrictions implemented as a result of it. We were truly able to demonstrate how a partnership with us goes beyond IT services and consultation. We want to see our clients succeed and we want to be their IT partner forever. The actions we take to partner with our clients during difficult times are demonstrative of that focus.”

Helgeson, along with the other honorees have leveraged their years of experience to forge a more promising path to the future.

Notably, many of this year’s awardees have also spearheaded charitable initiatives within and outside their companies, further demonstrating the strong drive within the IT services industry to support the communities they operate in.

As more companies outsource IT operations, there is an increasing need for trust and transparency among cloud platform providers. Knowing that a talented CEO is at the helm of any IT partner is important. In particular, any business with sensitive data or personally identifiable information in general, should consider Adopt as a safe and secure option for their own practices.

In January Adopt announced that it received SOC 2 Type II compliance attestation for its cloud platform. Conducted by The Lazarus Alliance, a leading Phoenix-based Cyber Security firm, the audit affirms Adopt’s strict internal security and organizational controls meet the rigorous SOC 2 standards. . This independent validation of Adopt’s security controls is critical, especially for clients in highly regulated industries.
