Griffin Internet have recruited a further four senior sales staff saying the additions demonstrate the increasing success of Griffin’s range of recently launched products, which have caused high channel reseller demand. The appointments include a Hosting Consultant and three Partner Managers. Last Year Griffin Internet doubled its number of staff and is on target to do the same in 2006.
The first of the four positions is the appointment of John Hipkiss as a Hosting Consultant. John arrives at Griffin with a wealth of industry experience having worked for Pipex and Project Telecom. John will be responsible for helping to drive hosting solutions, with particular focus on Griffin’s newly launched Storage Area Network, SANServe.
Trevor Dennehy, Mark Frost and Kevin Grainger join the Griffin Partner Management team, which has already doubled in size over the last year. Trevor has over seven years of experience in the Telecoms industry and joined Griffin from Telefonica UK. Mark Frost and Kevin Grainger have ten years experience in the industry and joined Griffin from Pipex. The role of the Partner Manager is to establish new Partners and then to work with their sales teams to help win major bids.
Andrew Dickinson, Sales & Marketing Director, Griffin internet, said: “Our ‘Top 5% only’ is not just a mantra, our Partners and their sales people must trust us to perform at the highest level with their major accounts or they won’t involve us in major bids. John, Mark, Kevin and Trevor have been selected following a meticulous and lengthy recruitment process.”
