Michelle Hyde
Michelle Hyde, principal consultant and founder of the Hyde Group, has more than 20 years’ experience working with clients to overcome network infrastructure and data center challenges. While on the brokering side of the business, Michelle quickly realized that many sales reps and independent brokers forgo the most important step in generating lasting, scalable solutions: The needs assessment and consulting legwork that is so paramount to delivering meaningful ROI. This void in the marketplace—the absence of true client advocacy—is what propelled Michelle to start and grow the Hyde Group into what it is today.

Michelle works with Fortune 1000 companies in the following verticals:
  • Software development
  • Banking
  • Real estate
  • Fast-moving consumer goods
  • Technology
  • Healthcare
  • And many others

Michelle is a certified Washington State Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises (OMWBE) member, and is a member of the following associations: Women in Technology (WIT), National Association of Professional Women (NAPW), and the Washington Technology Industry Association (WTIA). Michelle has been a featured presenter at industry events held by AFCOM, Datacenter Dynamics, Datacenter Marketplace, and others. She also actively serves on the Board of Directors for the Cloud Girls association as the Director of Operations.
