Longtime executive with the firm will oversee operations and provide strategic support for all ADNET locations
ADNET Technologies, a managed IT services, cloud, and cybersecurity provider with offices in Rocky Hill, Connecticut and Albany, New York, announced it has appointed Lynette Maffei to become its new President, taking on an expanded role in which she will continue to drive the firm’s work to deliver client success, develop technology talent and maintain operational excellence.
Maffei joined the firm in 2015 as Controller and has served on ADNET’s Executive Leadership Team as Chief Financial Officer and Vice President for the past three years – contributing directly to the firm’s growth and transformation.
In a strategic move, ADNET is separating the roles of Chief Executive Officer and President within the firm. This decision is rooted in the belief that having both positions will allow the organization to scale in unprecedented ways. Christopher J. Luise will continue to serve as Chief Executive Officer for the firm and provide strategic guidance and growth planning, with Maffei becoming President and overseeing operations. This new leadership structure will optimize ADNET’s delivery of client technology solutions and further equip the firm to quickly adapt and capitalize on emerging opportunities, while adhering to its longstanding, people-first approach to business.
“Lynette Maffei’s leadership has been instrumental in helping ADNET become the award-winning organization it is today,” said Christopher J. Luise, CEO of ADNET Technologies. “Her dedication to our culture and growth has truly transformed how we do business. I’m so proud of how she has evolved as a leader and helped us shape the future of the firm. I can’t wait to see what she accomplishes as President.”
“I’m thrilled to be part of ADNET’s journey, and I look forward to continuing working alongside such a great team. We’ve had an unparalleled period of growth and innovation over the last few years – expanding geographically, hiring more talent, reimagining our services, and becoming part of the New Charter Technologies national platform,” Maffei said. “I’m excited for the next chapter and to continue supporting clients and our local business communities in this new role.”
As company President, Maffei will oversee the operations of all ADNET locations and provide strategic support and leadership across the organization. She will partner closely with ADNET’s national platform, New Charter Technologies, to encourage strategic alignment and deep partnerships. Maffei will also work with regional leadership, including ADNET’s General Managers, Erin Peterson of ADNET’s Rocky Hill, Connecticut office and Ronald Gibson and Daniel Bardin of ADNET’s offices in New York’s Capital Region.
“It’s always exciting to see a new leader emerge in one of our operating companies,” said Mitch Morgan, CEO, New Charter Technologies. “New Charter is proud to support Lynette Maffei in her new role, and we’re looking forward to her continued commitment to driving growth and innovation at ADNET Technologies.”
In her tenure at the firm, Maffei has managed the firm’s day-to-day finance, accounting and purchasing functions, while also contributing to organizational growth objectives such as acquisitions and partnerships. Throughout her career, she has focused on operations, administration, finance and human resources.
Formerly the head of finance and operations for the Americas’ region of a global company, she has years of experience with leadership and client service on a global scale. Having worked closely with both small and large organizations, Maffei has a unique perspective on the market. Her focus and experience will benefit ADNET clients, employees, and the local business communities ADNET serves.
