Chris Garvey

Executive Vice President, Cloud Services

I am passionate about helping clients innovate faster and realize maximum value from the cloud.

I have spent the last 20+ years driving transformation on behalf of clients and companies internally by embracing change and applying new technology to accelerate business growth.

As the EVP of Cloud Services, my role is to ensure our industry leading delivery quality and continually expand our portfolio of cloud modernization solutions that help our clients innovate faster and realize maximum value from the cloud.

Prior to joining 2nd Watch, I was Managing Director for Digital Transformation at Luxoft, a global provider of consulting services. While there, I built our practice focused on Big Data, AI, Cloud and DevOps, which is a great fit for where we are going at 2nd Watch. Before Luxoft, I was at Expedia where we significantly scaled the analytics platform and instituted a product-driven mindset with our data engineering teams. Our infrastructure was largely on-premise at the time and just starting the journey toward the cloud, so I have lived through the challenges that many organizations are facing first-hand. Before Expedia, I spent time at eBay and ran the platform-as-a-service analytical offering, customer care application team, and outbound marketing and application suite that supported the 150 top US retail businesses from end-to-end in the Enterprise unit.

Before launching into professional life, I grew up on the East Coast and studied Computer Science at James Madison University – Go Dukes! When I am not working I can be found outside hiking, backpacking, skiing, and sailing with my family in the Pacific Northwest.
