Techstra Solutions Celebrates Its 10 Year Anniversary

Techstra Solutions (, a technology consulting and solutions firm based in Pittsburgh, is celebrating its ten (10) year anniversary. In addition, it is expanding its Pittsburgh footprint by adding new members to its leadership team, Michael Gerhardt as VP of Cloud Operations and Engineering and Tom Mole as VP of Sales, Healthcare and Insurance.

Techstra Solutions, a women-owned business, helps large enterprises realize the business value of digital transformation. Techstra serves large organizations nationally in the areas of cloud, data, application development, and automation.

“It is an honor to turn 10 during Women’s History Month. It is a celebration of those who have paved the way for me, and the path that I hope to blaze for others.

Achieving success with digital transformation is not easy. The proliferation of new innovations in cloud, data, and automation makes it incredibly difficult for large organizations to keep pace. This challenge is compounded with the tight labor market in these high demand areas and unfortunately companies are really struggling to meet their goals. McKinsey & Co. says that 70% fail or do not achieve their expected value. Our goal is to significantly change those odds by helping our clients better leverage modern technologies and build capabilities that achieve the desired business impact.

Techstra leaders have deep technical and domain knowledge and love to roll up their sleeves and work side-by-side with our clients. This ensures that we are immediately adding value, producing results, and delivering sustainable change. Seeding client teams with these specialized skill sets also helps to expedite the journey,” stated Jennifer Honig, Techstra Solutions, CEO.

Techstra added Pittsburgh natives, Michael Gerhardt as VP of Cloud Engineering and Operations, and Tom Mole as VP of Sales, Healthcare and Insurance.

Michael Gerhardt is a highly accomplished IT and operations executive with a decade of experience in leading healthcare and pharmaceutical companies through digital transformation by bringing innovation and modern technologies in and integrating them to drive business impact. Prior to his work in health sciences, Michael spent nearly 20 years driving technology advancement for the online division of a higher education company which enabled the company to scale significantly (1,000x) in five (5) years and helped to revolutionize the industry.

Gerhardt shares, “I consider myself to be very fortunate to join the Techstra team. I am surrounded by caring and brilliant people. There is an intense and sincere focus on client success through enabling sustainable impact by leveraging leading-edge technology and by working hands-on with their teams to co-create the solution. As an IT professional, you are required to be a lifelong learner and I find great personal and professional satisfaction when I can share my insights and experiences with others in support of their journeys as part of this team!”

Tom Mole has over 30 years of Sales and Executive leadership in the insurance, employee benefits, and healthcare industries.

“I joined Techstra because they have a proven track record of helping large businesses achieve digital transformation. During my time here I have found that our ability to enable very large enterprises stems from our agility and nimbleness to quickly mobilize the right technologies, know-how, and talent to help them accelerate the time to value of these investments,” Tom Mole said.

Gerhardt and Mole bring a breadth of knowledge and industry expertise in their respective fields. “Although we serve clients and have employees all over the country, I’m a Pittsburgh native and I’m committed to hiring exceptional leaders in the Pittsburgh area. We’re excited to welcome Tom and Michael to the team. Both are talented leaders with a passion for helping companies successfully transform,” stated Jennifer Honig, CEO Techstra Solutions.
