I have been in the IT & Telecoms industry for over 25 years, working with TDM & IPT telephony, unified communications, video conferencing/telepresence as well as the whole Microsoft suite of servers and applications. From engineering to technical support to IT management to pre-sales and then onto sales, I have vast experience of working with all types of customers, including SMB, multinational enterprises, and public sector.
I worked at Telinet (sold to niu solutions, who was then sold to Daisy Communications) in an engineering capacity then tech support and finally onto pre-sales in Avaya and Mitel technologies for over seven years, along with managing the IT infrastructure. I then joined Polycom focusing on visual collaborations and integration with Microsoft OCS R2 and then Lync 2010. I was in pre-sales and then made the jump into the dark side of sales in terms of managing Polycom partners. I spent a total of seven years at Polycom. I then had a brief stint at OpenText working with On-Demand Secure messaging. However, I missed unified communications and collaboration too much, so I joined Dimension Data in September 2014.
However, I wanted to get back to the vendor world of collaboration so I joined Pexip. I was the Director for Solutions Architecture in the UK covering the UKI and MEA, where Pexip integrates so well into other UC environments, bringing everything together on a scalable and distributed architecture. http://www.pexip.com. After nearly four years of great success with a Microsoft and Google Certified solution, I was asked to join the team at Crestron and do the same in building the Microsoft and Zoom go to market with the Crestron products. I worked at Crestron Electronics as the Enterprise UC Technical Director covering EMEA working with the Crestron Flex range of products for Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business and Zoom. Making meetings simple.
I then joined Neat in December 2021 as a Product Specialist in the UK focusing on the Microsoft Teams devices that were about to be launched. From September 2023, I am now the DIrector, Global Technical Sales, Alliances, working with global enterprises to adopt Microsoft Teams devices, along with working with the development team advising on Microsoft Teams platform.
