Samsung has appointed UK enterprise sales director Tim Skinner from Cisco, who will head up its continued push into commercial sectors, according to Channel Register.
Skinner spent 14 years in the sales engine room at Cisco but this week started at Samsung as director of its B2B operation, reporting directly to Graham Long. "The role will be to target verticals that we've identified and go into those accounts to sell the whole portfolio," Long told The Channel. "This is a renewed push around B2B.”
The 20-strong sales team will generate leads to pass to channel partners that include Computacenter, SCC, Softcat, Kelway, Insight, Systemax and a bunch of vertical specialists.
