“The internet changed everything,” says Tony Reyes, as he describes his career path and the journey that many have taken in the Amazon Web Services cloud services industry. He goes on to describe how things used to be, when you had to move to California or another big city to work in the tech space. “Today, all you need is a wifi signal,” he says.
As the Director of Sales for Trek 10, Tony is able to raise his family in his home state of Indiana and still work for a premier company in the AWS Professional Services and Managed Services Consulting industry.
Growing up in Frankfort, Indiana, Tony laid the groundwork for his success by corn detasseling, as well as working in a factory where he packaged artificial christmas trees. Because of these early jobs, the influence of the hardworking community he grew up in, and the example his parents set for him, Tony developed the work ethic and values that Hoosiers are known for.
After completing his undergraduate degree from Wabash College, Tony moved to Chicago, where he met his wife and started his family. After 14 years, he accepted a position in IT consulting in Indianapolis. From there, Tony learned about Trek 10 and the advancements they were making in AWS infrastructure consulting. He was determined to join this exciting company.
In his current role with Trek 10, Tony is passionate about using his expertise to help the next generation of tech leaders start their careers, right in Indiana. He wants to help young professionals realize that they don’t need to leave Indiana to work for a competitive company in the industry.
Tony also loves having the opportunity to work with a variety of companies through Trek 10, where he helps develop cutting-edge AWS cloud-based solutions for his clients. Trek10 counts well known Fortune 1000 clients as its customers all the way down to exciting startups vying to be the next well known brand. Tony’s primary objective is to take these businesses to the next level, utilizing the services that Trek 10 offers.
Since starting with Trek 10 as the first Indianapolis-based team member, the Indiana team has grown significantly, with 30 team members in South Bend and seven in Indianapolis. Now, Trek 10 is in the top 1% of service providers of AWS, and is continuing to expand its reach. With team members throughout the midwest and east coast, it is an exciting time to be a part of the organization!
Tony works out of zWORKS, along with a few other Indy-based colleagues, and loves coming into the Zionsville Village to spend his days. zWORKS has been a great way for him to create his own workspace outside the house, and has connected him with wonderful people living and working in the community.
