National non-profit NPower was among attendees, presented WWT with Technology Veteran Advocate of the Year award
ST. LOUIS, MO – March 29, 2019 – World Wide Technology (WWT) on March 29 hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the opening of its newest office location in the Legacy West area of Dallas, Texas. The grand opening event was attended by more than 100 people, including representatives from Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM), NASCAR driver Darrell “Bubba” Wallace and Russ Medina, Executive Director at NPower Texas.
In honor of their partnership with WWT, RPM and Bubba Wallace helped kick off the office’s grand opening. RPM, Wallace and the iconic No. 43 car, wrapped with WWT branding, were at the event to help celebrate the occasion ahead of Wallace’s upcoming race in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on March 31.
WWT is the official Technology and Analytics Partner of RPM and the primary sponsor of the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team. As part of the partnership, WWT provides data analytics consulting and technology solutions to help improve team performance for Wallace and the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team.
“Our team’s partnership with WWT goes much further than featuring the name and logo on the car. All of their support with our technology behind the scenes has been a huge help to the program,” said Wallace.
NPower, a national nonprofit dedicated to helping veterans find jobs in their community, also attended the event and presented WWT with an award for Technology Veteran Advocate of the Year.
“In Texas, we talk about ‘hat, no cattle,’ but WWT is all substance — all cattle. It really shows in how we manage our relationships with funders and investors,” said Medina. “Over the last year, WWT has helped us place veterans in jobs in cybersecurity, IT and coding at major financial institutions.”
WWT’s new Plano office features a virtual Advanced Technology Center (ATC), executive board room and two video-enabled conference room. The ATC, WWT’s state-of-the-art lab, provides a unique testing and validation environment – a collaborative ecosystem – to design, build, educate, demonstrate and deploy innovative technology products and integrated architectural solutions for WWT customers, partners and employees. About 70 WWT employees will utilize the new workspace, specializing in fields ranging from engineering to business development and professional services.
“We are thrilled to continue expanding WWT and providing top-tier technology solutions to customers right here in the Dallas area,” said Matt Horner, Senior Vice President of Global Enterprise Sales at WWT. “It’s an honor to be joined for this occasion by some of WWT’s ardent customers and partners, including RPM and NPower.”
