Wick Hill appoints new business development manager

Siobhan Gibbs has been appointed business development manager at Wick Hill, heading up the VoIP team and spearheading the growth of converged voice and data solutions through the channel.

Gibbs’ responsibilities include growing the channel for new Wick Hill vendor Samsung, getting the voice part of the business running, and workinon building up Wick Hill’s converged voice and data portfolio.

Gibbs commented: “At the moment, there isn’t a successful converged
Voice and data value added distributor out there. This is a great opportunity for me to help Wick Hill become the first one.”

She added: “We are planning for significant growth with voice and data resellers looking for marketing, sales and technical support as customers increasingly require broader knowledge in a converged environment.”

Ian Kilpatrick, chairman at Wick Hill Group, commented: “This is a key appointment for us. Siobhan has the experience, skills and ability to both drive forward our convergence message in the voice world and to work with data resellers to deliver voice applications across the network.”

MTV (now ScanSource) as sales director.
