Partner & Managing Director
About Jim Andronaco
Jim’s experience in technology includes 10 years of leading sales teams at SBC Communications. He then put his consulting expertise to work, founding Sidepath Inc. in 2006. Sidepath Inc. started as a telecom services agency and, on client request, quickly added IT hardware sales and services. After 15 years with both divisions under a single brand, the company spun out the telecom agency as Sidepath Global in 2020. The company earned top-performer awards from its two technology services distributors (TSDs), becoming a Double Platinum Partner with Intelisys and an Elite Partner with Telarus.
Now part of UPSTACK, Sidepath Global supports numerous customers, including data center hosting, unified communications as a service (UCaaS), contact center as a service (CCaaS), connectivity, cloud computing, cloud backup and security.
As Partner and Managing Director at UPSTACK, Jim continues his dedication to helping clients leverage innovative enterprise technologies to better align IT with their business needs. With his expertise, Jim has had success with enabling businesses of all sizes to optimize wide area networks, simplify data management and improve voice and video communications.
One of Jim’s most successful projects was working with a leading global semiconductor company to help orchestrate a comprehensive upgrade of their network from 10 & 100mbps MPLS to 1gbps+ SDWAN. Simultaneously, they strategically relocated to two data centers which significantly enhanced their overall infrastructure. Executed under a $7M contract, this initiative optimized their network speed, flexibility, and control. The impact extended beyond technology advancements to savings of over $1,000,000 in operational expenses.
Jim studied Business Administration at California State University, Fullerton. When away from work, Jim enjoys golf, traveling and making memories with his three grandchildren.
