Angela Casperelli has joined Alcatel as UK distribution channel manager, Enterprise Solutions Division (ESD). Casperelli will be responsible for maintaining Alcatel’s existing relationships with business partners and continuing to develop Alcatel’s UK channel, through a new business partner programme to be launched in 2006.
Casperelli joins Alcatel with ten years experience in the telecoms industry. She is well known to the Alcatel partner community, having previously been responsible for Alcatel’s channel business with Rocom, where she spent more than two years building on Alcatel’s existing market share.
“As convergence uptake continues to increase, it is vital that partners receive a high level of support and commitment, giving them the education and training necessary to meet changing customer needs,” said Casperelli. “I look forward to helping our distribution and channel partners meet their business goals and objectives with increased customer satisfaction.”
“Casperelli is a great asset to the Alcatel UK team,” said Keith Rapp, UK channels manager. “Her personal drive and commitment, and level of experience with partners make her ideally placed to continue and build on our successful growth trend – helping Alcatel to support and win new business for current partners.”
