Dover's deep technical background, strong leadership abilities, and proven ability to produce and navigate growth make him ideal for position, Valintry Services reports
Franklin, TN -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/27/2015 -- Valintry Services, one of the nation's leading IT Consulting and recruiting firms, announced that Tony Dover has joined the company as Vice President of Consulting Business Development. Dover's background includes more than 22 years of technical and cross-functional experience, along with 14 years in strategic leadership roles at Nashville-area companies and 12 years of local public leadership. In his new position, Dover will help build Valintry's consulting business in Nashville and beyond.
"I am thrilled with the opportunity to work with Tony for a second time," reported Steve Wise, CIO and President of Valintry's Consulting Division, "We have worked together for more than seven years, and Tony is an expert at producing extraordinary results. I'm ecstatic about the value he will deliver to Valintry's customers."
A natural leader with deep, thriving roots in Tennessee, Dover graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Middle Tennessee State University, thereafter working as a software developer, business analyst, and technical specialist for a number of companies in the Nashville area. Less than a decade out of college, Dover added a new dimension to his resume with a stint as a councilman in his hometown of Smyrna, later going on to lead the town in the part-time positions of Vice Mayor and Mayor.
That string of ambitious public leadership positions endowed Dover with a uniquely valuable roster of experiences. Located in one of the fastest-growing counties in the country, Smyrna gave Dover a special vantage point that bolstered his ability to drive growth and competitive advantage even further. As he worked to entice global enterprises to the area and grow their presences in Smyrna and Greater Rutherford County, Dover built up skills that will contribute greatly to his effectiveness at Valintry.
Dover has been just as accomplished in the private sector, having served as Director and CIO for a number of top companies in the Nashville area. In the role of Director of Network Operations and Security at MedSolutions, he guided the company's IT activities through a period of rapid expansion while consistently maintaining strong security standards. As the Director of Network and Computing Services at Medical Reimbursements of America in Brentwood, he refined and reorganized the company's IT operations, establishing new procedures that left it primed for future growth.
Most recently, as the Chief Information Officer of PatientFocus, he developed and executed on a technology road map that put the company's IT assets in precise alignment with its business goals. Dover's work at PatientFocus earned him a 2014 award from the Nashville Business Journal for being one of the most effective CIOs at a company of that size.
Dover is the second executive with background as a Chief Information Officer to join Valintry, a sign of the deep technical expertise that pervades the company. With proven experience at leading other companies through times of rapid growth, Dover will be a perfect fit for fast-growing Valintry as he develops new opportunities for its industry-leading IT Consulting in Nashville and beyond.
"As I look forward to the next stage of what has been an incredibly rewarding career, I could not be happier about where I am landing," Dover stated, "With such an amazing array of talent already in place, Valintry is an impressive organization that is on course for even greater things. I know that my work with the company will be highly productive, and I look forward to being part of what is sure to be a bright future."
