On The Beat Industry News In Brief

BlueLock, an Indianapolis company that remotely hosts IT infrastructure, has made its first big management change since it was founded in 2006.

John Qualls, BlueLock’s co-founder, is handing the CEO reins to Christopher Clapp, best known as CEO of Angel Learning. The Indianapolis software company was sold last year for $95 million to Washington, D.C.-based Blackboard Inc.

BlueLock’s Qualls will “explore new markets and strategic areas of growth” as senior vice president.

Clapp has served on BlueLock’s board and in March became interim vice president of operations. The so-called cloud computing and managed IT services firm is part of Collina Ventures, a holding company created by local tech entrepreneurs Karen and Mark Hill.

BlueLock has about 35 employees. In March, the company announced plans to expand its 20,000-square-foot data center on the northwest side. The $36 million project could yield an additional 118 jobs by 2014.
