Whitlock, a video collaboration company, announces the hiring of Bob Zimmermann as its new Director of Managed Services Sales. Bob will provide vision and insight to the fastest growing part of Whitlock’s business in global support services. His previous roles included executive level positions with complementary tech partners, Prysm and Spectralink (which was purchased by Polycom).
“We’re excited about the impact that Bob can bring to our cloud and global support teams as he comes to us with a long history of success and innovation in his previous roles,” states John “Jack” Steinhauer, Whitlock Executive Vice President. “He has worked with Whitlock as a partner in the past, so he is already aware of our culture and familiar with our leaders and many of our team members nationwide.”
“My former roles in global channels for both Prysm and Spectralink have enabled me to understand Whitlock closely, and I’m excited to drive new relationships and revenue streams to an already established team,” says Bob. “And Whitlock’s leadership in the Global Presence Alliance makes a great launching pad for expanding our global story with large enterprises.”
This newly created role includes a close partnership with Whitlock’s service delivery team and VP of IT Chris Jamison, who oversees Managed Services Delivery and Professional Services. “Bob will help us further enable seamless, customer-centric solutions across the sales, implementation, support and services lifecycle. His role will serve as a liaison between leadership, sales and delivery, which will help us drive more profitable growth from our services,” states Chris.
Bob’s previous experience includes sales and service leadership roles with AVI-SPL, Wire One and PictureTel, which rounds out his expertise in every part of the Whitlock portfolio from strategy and design to enterprise management, implementation and global services. He will work out of Whitlock’s Mountain Region, and report as a national resource to Jack Steinhauer, EVP.
