Involta named to Inc.’s inaugural Power Partner Awards

Involta, a hybrid IT, cloud computing and data center services company, was announced to Inc.’s inaugural Power Partner Awards.

The award honors 252 B2B organizations around the world that support startups and entrepreneurs. The list recognizes firms in marketing and advertising, health and human resources, financial planning, engineering, logistics, and security, as well as other areas of business.

They were one of six companies in the cloud computing category and one of two Iowa organizations on the list.  Principal Financial Group was the other firm recognized for its achievements.

“We are honored to be included on this elite list of organizations for our dedication to helping clients grow and win business in today’s digitally-driven landscape,” said Jim Buie, president and CEO of Involta. “This recognition is a true testament to our ongoing mission — rooted deeply in our trusted partnerships with the enterprise community — to accelerate digital journeys for mission-critical applications.”

The complete list can be viewed online on Inc’s website.

In July, Jim Buie was named the Cedar Rapids-based company’s new president and CEO, succeeding current CEO and company founder Bruce Lehrman.

This announcement comes on the heels of Involta’s recent data center expansion in the Cleveland market, where the company now has 10MW of critical power for increasing colocation and cloud demand. In addition, the company has incorporated innovative technology partnerships into its portfolio of next-generation solutions, such as HacWare, an AI-driven awareness and training SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) product.
