A seasoned channel professional, Ian joins Park Place with a wealth of experience spanning over 30 years in the partner ecosystem. He has held various channel roles that encompass a portfolio of IT infrastructure lifecycle solutions at HPE, and more recently at Telefónica Tech.
Ian has worked with and led teams in both the direct and channel space, aligning perfectly with Park Place, which has a go-to-market strategy that is driven through a direct and partner sales delivery model.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Park Place Technologies and I’m honoured to be leading their EMEA partner team,” Anderson said. “Park Place continues to deliver innovative services to the IT market, and it is this innovation, coupled with its range of services, that has positioned Park Place as the global leader in data centre and networking optimisation.”
Anderson has distributed and launched new products and services through the channel, and has created strategic partnerships and alliances in the channel, which will bolster Park Place as the company continues to drive further growth with existing and new partners in EMEA.
“Park Place enjoys partnerships and relationships across the breadth and depth of the channel partner ecosystem,” Anderson continued, “and I am looking forward to taking these relationships further to enable partner growth and success, through market leading services and the implementation of service delivery to customers.”
Anderson’s role will focus on leading channel engagement to deliver first-class IT infrastructure lifecycle services, across a full portfolio of IT infrastructure services, which include, professional services, managed services, network performance management and monitoring, as well as a core offering of hardware and OS support for storage, servers and networking hardware.
