At insideHPC, we’ve experienced a lot of growth in the past year,” said company President Rich Brueckner. “We launched our sister publication, inside-Startups, just two months ago and It quickly became clear to me that we needed to expand our staff to better serve our readers. Together, Amie, Ralph, and William bring a tremendous amount of talent and enthusiasm to the insideHPC team. Our readers and advertisers can look forward to some really amazing innovation coming from our publications in the coming year.”
