James Belton

Global IT Architect, IBM Cloud Customer Success

Ryan Sumner

Lead Architect, Worldwide Cloud Technical Solutions

Andy Sim

Digital CSM, Enablement Architect

James Belton has been with IBM since 2011 and within IBM Cloud since 2015. His day job is all about working directly with customers and helping them find the best path forward to achieve their goals, though he also gets actively involved in creating educational material around IBM Cloud and running various webinars.

James lives in the UK and when he’s not at the keyboard, likes to be riding his bike but admits that any Grand Tour aspirations are many years behind him. He also recently bought a bass guitar and enjoys making a racket, mostly mangling the songs of The Stranglers.

Ryan Sumner has deep knowledge, skills, and experience in solutioning and deploying real-world customer workloads on IBM Cloud.

Even after 23 years at IBM and a geek at heart, Ryan truly enjoys his day-to-day working with customers and IBM products.  In his personal time, you’ll find Ryan enjoying R&R with his family by the backyard pool or with his hands elbow-deep in his massive saltwater reef aquarium.

Andy joined IBM in 2017, currently working as a Digital CSM. During his time at IBM, his roles have consisted of Account Manager for all IBM Internal Accounts, Cloud Enablement Architect for the Digital CSM organization, and now a Digital CSM for IBM Business Partner accounts.

Outside of work, Andy enjoys working on DIY home projects with his wife, and playing with his dog and cat. He is also volunteering as a youth group leader at his local community church, which is currently operating virtually. He hopes that the day will come when he can play basketball with his friends again.
