Pantek Invited to Downtown Tech 25

The Downtown Tech 25, a specialized affiliation of technology companies whose main offices or headquarters are located in Downtown Cleveland, have invited Pantek to join their exclusive group. DT25’s Mission is to support the economic development initiatives of the City of Cleveland. DT25 is a strong group of ambassadors that will talk through the positive aspects of relocating a technology company to Downtown Cleveland.

“This has been a great honor”, stated Richard Zack, CEO of Pantek, “the potential for Pantek to help create a technology culture in Cleveland has now significantly increased, due to the time, thought, and efforts of the Downtown Tech 25”. Pantek, a NE Ohio company that specializes in Linux based software development, technical support and technical security services, recently moved from Solon, Ohio to The Sterling Building at 1255 Euclid Avenue in Downtown Cleveland.

The event was held at the BlueBridge Internet Data Center also located at 1255 Euclid Ave. Keynote speakers for the event included Mayor Jane Campbell, Michael DeAloia, CFO of BlueBridge Networks, and Michael Settonni, President & CEO of Broadcast Media Ideas, just to name a few.

“Cleveland is a great city” said Zack, “it has always been our dream to have our company located downtown.” Cleveland has “stepped up” in recent years to help small, medium and large companies to continue to flourish in the Cleveland Metropolitan area. “For years, Pantek has been uniquely positioned to grow as an innovative American technology company”, stated Zack, “and now being a part of The Downtown Tech 25, I believe Pantek is now positioned as an innovative Cleveland technology company.”

Move to Cleveland Excels Linux Software Company

Pantek expands, promotes, and brings new jobs to Cleveland!

The recent move by Pantek, a NE Ohio company that specializes in Linux based software development, technical support and technical security services, has generated an immediate response from new clients nationally and has expanded their winning team. Formerly based in Solon, Ohio, Pantek’s expansion was a necessary endeavor based on the growth of the company. “We’re all working hard in short-term, to make a huge long-term impact on the industry and for our clients,” said Richard Zack, CEO of Pantek.

Recently, Pantek promoted four longtime employees and added two more positions to the team. Justin Spies was promoted from Project Manager to Technology Manager. Sarah Miazga was promoted From Jr. Project Engineer to Account Executive. Ryan Yagatich was promoted from Software Developer to Sr. Software Developer. Ken Tyler was promoted from Project Engineer to Sr. Project Engineer. Since Pantek’s move downtown, they have added an Accounting Assistant and a Jr. Project Engineer. Pantek plans on adding two more full-time positions this year.

The client list at Pantek has grown continually because of the innovative thinking of the dedicated professionals that Zack has surrounded himself with. Pantek’s staff creatively balances realization with actualization: Innovative thinking that is realized, applied and customized for individual customers needs.

The move to The Sterling Building at 1255 Euclid Avenue has been quick to ensure non-stop service to their clients. Historically, there have been several large internet companies in the Sterling Building so it was an excellent choice as a technological center.

“Cleveland is a great city” said Zack, “When the brightest minds in the country graduate from their academic endeavors, we want them to consider Cleveland first. The growth potential for Pantek is amazing because of the qualified .creative. thinkers that are on staff, and because of the largely untapped local talent pool”. Pantek plans on bringing many more jobs to the Cleveland area in the future to help the community as well as the growing cultural and artistic revolution that has risen to new levels in recent years.
