Renaissance announces Direct Sales team

02 Sep 10

The focus of the long-running Direct Sales team is to sell the whole Renaissance portfolio of products - Apple products, networking and security solutions, peripherals, appliances, application development, training and technology services - directly to education and enterprise customers.

The new Direct Sales management team will report to Lynne Stephens, Director, Direct Sales.

Stephens joined Renaissance in April 2010 and has spent the past few months evaluating the structure and focus of the direct sales team, says Renaissance.

The four GMs are:

  • David Olliver - General Manager, Government Sales

  • Ross Fodie - General Manager, Education Sales

  • Victoria Cotton - General Manager, Enterprise Sales

  • Adam Taylor - General Manager, Sales Support

Olliver is a long time Renaissance employee, Fodie joined in July 2010 from Equico Finance, Cotton joins on September 15th from HP and Taylor moves over from Integral Axon later this month.

“Direct sales to New Zealand education institutions and enterprises is a growth area for Renaissance and I am delighted to have Ross Fodie, Victoria Cotton and Adam Taylor join the Renaissance team”, said Stephens. “The entire management team is passionate about customers and have vast experience in selling hardware, services and training solutions.”

This answers the question of who would replace Chris Parnell and Chris Allsop, after their recent departure. Cotton replaces Parnell and Taylor replaces Allsop.
