In December, i4 Business Magazine
recognized Harry Ellis CEO of the Year in the category of Information Technology (IT). Under Harry’s leadership, Next Horizon has seen record revenue growth and a 95% customer retention rate. By diversifying service offerings and investing in quality professionals, Next Horizon has been able to secure enterprise clients while providing vital services for Central Florida’s small business community.
Harry received his Undergraduate and Master’s Degree in Computer Forensics from the University of Central Florida. After taking over operations of Next Horizon from his father five years ago, he quickly fell in love with the business and took to a leadership role. Since taking over as President and CIO, Harry and Next Horizon have earned continued recognition – 2018 GrowFL Company to Watch, Orlando Business Journal’s CIO and CEO of the Year, OBJ’s Fast 50 Companies, and more. Too keep up with the continued growth, Next Horizon will be breaking ground soon on a brand new 8,500 square foot new headquarters building in Sanford.
“It’s very humbling to receive this award,” said Ellis, “but without highly capable followers, there is no one to lead. Culture changes when you have such rapid growth. Having a team at my side that can roll with the punches and adapt quickly is really why I am successful. Without followers, there is no leadership.”
With a commitment to its people, leading-edge, diversified services and innovative marketing efforts, Next Horizon is positioned to grow even more in 2019. Next Horizon has a foundation of success and prestige. Harry looks to build on that foundation for the future and will continue to grow Next Horizon as a company that cares about its clients, its employees and its community.
