GN Netcom, provider of headsets, has appointed two national sales managers within its UK national sales division. Alan Quinlan and Robert Stockford will focus on driving sales for the company’s Jabra-branded headset solutions and developing Jabra’s existing and new customer and partner base.
Quinlan joins the corporate channel team and will draw on over 20 years experience in sales gained at IT and telecoms giants including BT, Applegarth and Opal Solutions. He is tasked with identifying and implementing a series of new initiatives to grow and provide continued support to Jabra’s corporate channel partners.
Stockford will work with the reseller channel, ensuring the right partner mix to drive market share. Previously Stockford worked at Xerox for five years as a UK sales manager and led his reseller team to unprecedented success including a 29% revenue increase in just two years. Prior to this, he spent over 10 years working at companies including Fujitsu-Siemens, Trend Micro and ComputaCenter.
Both Stockford and Quinlan will report into Andrew Doyle, Jabra sales director at GN Netcom, and lead their own teams of field agents, desk side support staff and sales account managers.
Doyle said: “The appointment of two highly experienced sales managers significantly strengthens our team, providing us with the ideal platform to continue to build lasting relationships with customers and our reseller partners.
“The quality of GN Netcom’s Jabra headsets, coupled with Rob’s channel experience and Alan’s extensive knowledge of the VoIP and unified communications markets, will ensure our partner resellers gain maximum advantage and our customers benefit from the very best experience and service.”
