Meet A Minnesota Tech CTO: Max Belov, Coherent Solutions
9 May 2019
How long have you been working in tech and what is your technical background?
I started working as a software developer when I was studying towards my math major in college in the early 1990s. My technical background includes software development in a variety of different technology stacks, enterprise architecture, and distributed systems design and implementation. I’ve had the pleasure of working for Coherent Solutions since 1997 and became the CTO in 2001.
What are you focused on right now?
I’m responsible for guiding the strategic direction of the company’s technology services, including application development, mobile solutions, data services, cloud computing and DevOps. One of my favorite parts of the job is heading up various R&D activities to develop competencies in emerging technologies. These initiatives provide our customers with top-notch technology capabilities in many areas including IoT, blockchain and AI, among others. We were also recently named an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner so that initiative took up a lot of the team’s time – but it is so rewarding when we think about what it means for our customers and an expanding portfolio of services.
