Rene Herteux, co-founder of Gray Space Solutions, began his business career as an accountant after earning a business degree from the University of Minnesota. After discovering his passion for technology, he switched paths and entered the technology sector.
Over the past several decades, Rene has held a variety of hands-on and managerial technical positions and has attained a number of technical certifications. In his most recent technical role, he served as Director of IT and Datacenter Operations where he worked closely with peers across many departments and at all levels of the organization. Rene has a reputation for having a customer-centric focus, valuing customer service above all else.
A consistent frustration Rene faced over the course of his career was the difficulty he encountered in finding qualified talent. The technical recruiting firms he worked with struggled to “get it,” resulting in a barrage of candidates that didn’t meet the important qualifications for the job. Rene’s desire to build a better mousetrap inspired the genesis of Gray Space Solutions.
Rene currently lives in southwest Florida with his wife Stacey and their 3 golden retrievers. He likes to spend as much time as possible in the great outdoors boating, fishing, and photographing landscapes and wildlife. You can see his photography at www.focusingonnature.com
