Former Microsoft and HPE Sales Director Set to Accelerate Sales for CANCOM in the UK
[LONDON, UK, 1 February 2019] Mark Gorton has been appointed as the new CANCOM UK Sales Director. Gorton (pictured) has held previous Sales Director roles at Microsoft and HPE. Both are long-standing partners of OCSL, acquired by CANCOM last year to increase its UK market presence.
“As part of CANCOM, we have an incredible breadth and depth of IT services we can offer clients in the UK” commented Martin Hess, CEO. “To capitalise on this terrific portfolio, we needed someone with an equally broad set of skills - someone with hardware, professional services and managed services experience.”
Hess concluded: “Mark has previously led teams through stages of impressive double-digit growth at two of our biggest partners. With these solid credentials Mark is the perfect choice to spearhead CANCOM’s evolution in the UK market. We are extremely pleased to welcome Mark to the CANCOM family.”
Mark Gorton added: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining a company at such an exciting stage of expansion. CANCOM, unlike, most other service providers, can manage the complete Hybrid IT infrastructure end-to-end. With our extensive portfolio of products and services, aligned with our strong network of strategic partners, we are ideally placed to help our customers get the most out of their existing technology stack and accelerate their digital transformation. It’s set to be a very exciting year ahead.”
