The Cloud-Man in the flesh on the “Runway”- All At Rackpace’s 2009 Kick off event!
Rackspace kicked off 2009 with a skit performed by its senior leadership team. The skit was a takeoff on the TV Reality show “Project Runway”.
So Lew Moorman, SVP of Strategy, showed up all dressed up as – the Cloud!
The Cloud was built using multiple smaller clouds to symbolize the redundancy of the cloud. As explained by the “designer”, Emil Sayegh, GM of the Cloud Division, while actually popping one of those balloons on Lew’s back: “If one pops, there are a multitude of others that can keep our customer afloat, and unaffected”.
The “designer” Emil, is shown here:
Emil explained that Cloud design was composed of a revolutionary elastic material (Latex), “that stretches to accommodate the size of the customer, ‘petite’ to ‘plus’ sized customers”. The Cloud is elastic, dynamic and flexible!
The event ended with good camaraderie, good food, and…a few kegs of beer.
No wonder we are one of the best 100 US companies to work for (again!).
