South Wales data centre operator, Next Generation Data (NGD), has appointed Lee Cauchie as Head of Channel. He is to ramp up NGD’s UK and international channel sales through partnerships with service providers requiring highly secure and resilient colocation facilities for hosting web, cloud, infrastructure- and software-as-a-service (Iaas/Saas) solutions.
With his extensive hardware, software, networks and security sales background, Lee Cauchie is ideally equipped to drive NGD’s channel business forward. He joins from LenovoEMC (formerly Iomega Corporation) where he was Business Development Manager and prior to this Sales Manager for IT distributor, ASBIS Group.
Since NGD launched its Channel Partner programme last year a growing number of UK and international service provider and reseller organisations have installed racks at its NGD Europe mega data centre conveniently located from the M4 motorway near Newport, South Wales. These include such companies as UNIT4, Certus IT, Commercial IT, CAE, Surf Telecom, Netplan and TechQuarter.
“NGD Europe is proving to be a popular and profitable haven for channel customers of all sizes and I am very excited about the opportunity of recruiting many more in the months to come,” commented Lee Cauchie, Head of Channel, Next Generation Data.
“We offer our Channel Partners a highly compelling proposition including well above industry-norm margin opportunities, comprehensive sales, engineering and technical support, modern meeting and conference facilities,” added Lee Cauchie, “not to mention the credibility of providing a truly world-class, secure tier 3 data centre environment which is relied upon by such large blue chip companies as IBM, Wipro Technologies, BT and Logica.”
