London – 20 April 2017OCSL announced today that it has appointed HPE’s former National Business Partner Manager, Cathy Hoffman, as their new International Partner Manager.  Since 2012, OCSL has seen massive growth in the demand for International Partner Services, with further revenue growth forecast.

With this appointment, OCSL adds deep industry expertise and specialist knowledge of the US IT market. This complements its strong network and ability to deploy in Europe, Middle East, Africa, South America and Asia Pacific.

“OCSL has built an incredibly strong global projects capability in a short amount of time, and that speaks volumes about their international expertise and their agility.” commented Cathy Hoffman.  She added, “I was impressed with OCSL during my time at HPE, so I’m really looking forward to becoming a key part of their team.”

Cathy will be using her 20+ years Channel and Account Management experience to help US IT partners and end user clients manage international deployments more effectively.  With established networks in 5 different continents, OCSL has the ability to handle global projects including professional services such as infrastructure application & project management, managed services and infrastructure/software supply.

Martin Hess, OCSL’s Chairman reflected, “There’s a real need to scale IT deployments internationally. But for many US IT partners and US-based clients, this is often prohibitively complicated, expensive and risky.”  He continued, “With our International Partner Services, deployment can literally be turned on overnight, but without absorbing any of the direct risks.”

Iain Maclean, Director OCSL International, added, “If you’re not thinking about international deployment, your competitors will be.  As business becomes ever-more global, it’s critical to stay competitive with the ability to quickly scale up internationally. It’s key to look at projects as Global rather than Local.  Working alongside OCSL as a virtual team, gives resellers the ability to extend reach and take on wider and deeper projects

OCSL will be attending HPE’s Global Partner Summit from the 5-7 June 2017 in Las Vegas.
