GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. and MINNEAPOLIS – May. 19, 2020 – OST, a business and IT consulting firm, today announced that Erik Toth joins the company as the vice president of professional services. In his new role, Toth will leverage his expertise to unite OST’s internal teams and assist in accelerating OST into its next phase of growth by promoting internal collaboration and helping employees excel throughout all areas of the business.

As the vice president of professional services, Toth will work directly with the OST leadership team to accelerate growth without losing value, agility or company culture. Toth will leverage his more than 12 years of experience working at Silicon Valley companies in building out the services model at OST to scale the business while still ensuring sustainability and prioritizing client and employee needs.

“Erik’s background and his excitement to accelerate OST to the next level, make him a great addition to our leadership team,” said Meredith Bronk, president of OST. “His unique set of experience, having worked for large companies such as PayPal and Netflix, gives OST the chance to foster insight on internal restructuring that has proven successful for larger organizations. OST looks forward to continuing our growth strategy with Erik now on board.”

Prior to joining OST, Toth held engineering positions at several large technology companies including PayPal, Venmo and Netflix. Most recently, he served as a director of engineering for PayPal, where he oversaw strategic partnerships, marketplaces and commerce platforms, such as Facebook. His main responsibility was to ensure his team delivered the best possible experience for partners via the PayPal Commerce Platform and other PayPal capabilities.

“My decision to join OST was largely led by culture. Coming from Silicon Valley, work can often feel very transactional. At OST, it is apparent that work is more than that,” said Erik Toth, vice president of professional services at OST. “Additionally, I attended college just one hour away from Grand Rapids at Michigan State University, so I am looking forward to my family getting to know and love West Michigan as much as I do.”
