Security and networking VAD Cloud Distribution has hired Andy Fidgeon in the newly-created role of southern sales manager.
Reporting to sales director Greg Harris, Fidgeon will take on responsibility for growing a southern-based sales team, expanding its channel and increasing sales of its next-generation product portfolio, which the firm is actively trying to grow.
He will also be tasked with building on the success of the firm’s virtual market-making service, Altitude, creating a dedicated marketing and lead-generation team to chase down opportunities for reseller partners.
With over a decade’s experience in the industry, Fidgeon arrives at Cloud Distribution following a nine month stint as an account manager at networking reseller LAN2LAN’s security division.
Prior to that he spent four years at VADition, parting ways with the firm a year after its acquisition by Exclusive Networks.
Cloud Distribution’s Greg Harris commented: “Our relationships with disruptive technology vendors demonstrate our commitment to delivering on our mission. Andy brings first-hand experience of partnering with innovative, fast-growing technology vendors, delivering value-add and creating a solid sales pipeline for them.”
