Today we are talking to Joe the CTO at Liquid Web. And we discuss the advantages of bringing in a subject matter experts, when it makes sense to build vs buy, and we dive deep into the financials that all CTOs should know.

All of this, right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!

Joe has spent decades creating mission critical platforms that not only scale to high numbers of users, but are also fast, secure, and resilient. His experience with Clearleap, Cbeyond, and the big technology titans (IBM, Sony, Booz-Allen, and Capital One) taught him that focus is a key element for achieving results with any business. Motivated by the success Liquid Web has experienced in its first two decades, Joe is applying everything he’s learned about technology, business, and leadership to make Liquid Web the preeminent brand for web hosting and customer support.

A crucial aspect of achieving his goal is to constantly look for ways to improve our products and services, but in his mind the most important thing is results. At the end of the day, success means supporting and growing our customers’ business with the best support experience they’ve ever had.

Joe currently lives in Atlanta, GA with his wife, Lee and three kids, Grant, Carter and Kendall. He can often be found cheering on his two teams: the Indianapolis Colts and the Purdue Boilermakers.
