Episode 10: Chris Smith Leads NYC-based Cloud9 Smart from a Safe Distance



In this episode, Residential Tech Today Executive Editor Jeremy Glowacki talks with Chris Smith, the CEO of Cloud9 Smart, a custom integration firm based in New York City. Smith is one of the smartest and most thoughtful integration professionals in the country, so you might not be surprised to learn that as soon as he realized that the health of his employees was at risk from COVID-19, he closed down operations, even for so-called “essential workers” and relocated himself to Colorado, where he and his girlfriend had a place to stay away from one of the worst Coronavirus hotspots in the country. In this conversation, Smith shares how he has already “right-sized” his business for an eventual return to work, what he’s learning from his fellow CEOs during the pandemic, and how a “new normal” will affect his employees when they return to work early this summer.
