Grimes is succeeding Denis Martin, who stepped down from the role on June 1. In this capacity, Grimes will assume responsibility for the overall technology vision and direction for the company as well as continuing to lead research and development.

“Dave and I have worked side-by-side for more than 17 years,” Martin said. “I am honored to hand over the reins to someone I not only respect as an industry leader but also consider a close friend. NaviSite is in great hands.”
