Services solutions firm Continuum, has appointed a European sales director, as it announced expansion into Europe with a new headquarters in the Thames Valley.
“We are excited about our expansion into Europe and even more excited about Paul Balkwell leading this important initiative for Continuum,” said Mark Connolly, vice president of sales at Continuum.
Balkwell will be responsible for driving revenue growth through its current MSPs, as well as through the recruitment of new partners in the region.
“Paul was the sales leader for an extremely successful MSP in the UK for several years, so he is well equipped to support the growing demand of Continuum managed IT services in the region,” continued Connolly. “The rapid growth of our large MSP partner base as well as signing on so many new partners over the last year has led to our expansion into Europe.”
With over 22 years of experience in IT, Balkwell has built successful growth strategies for managed IT services, systems integration and software solutions.
Balkwell was previously director and UK general manager of Micropoint Managed Services, a firm recently acquired by IP Integration. He also racked up sales experience at Business Relations International.
“Continuum has experienced significant growth in Europe, and we continue to focus on our channel partners as they support the growing demand for managed IT services throughout the region,” said Paul Balkwell. “Building this commercial and technical resource in Europe allows us to provide better services and support to local partners.”
Paul is presenting at the Computer Troubleshooters UK National Annual Conference this year discussing Continuum’s plans for Europe,
