Cloud managed service automation vendor BitTitan has named James Clifford as its new EMEA sales director. The newly added role will help support BitTitan’s continued expansion throughout EMEA, a key region in the cloud adoption market.
Clifford will support BitTitan’s expanding business footprint and presence within the region as demand for cloud computing technology continues to rise. Global analyst firm Gartner has predicted that EMEA IT spending will increase to $798bn in 2020, with cloud spending and more specifically growth in software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions acting as key drivers to rising expansion.
“As demand escalates for cloud technologies in the EMEA market, the need for reliable and scalable solutions only continues to increase,” said Tony Rummans, vice president of global sales at BitTitan. “The appointment of James Clifford to the EMEA sales director role will help BitTitan enable its partners to meet the growing needs of customers while building new relationships with key partners in the region.”
He said Clifford will oversee the development and growth of the company’s EMEA business and “cultivate lasting relationships with key channel partners and distributors in the region”. His job will include expanding relationships with partners looking to deliver digital transformation across an array of platforms, including the Microsoft, Amazon and Google clouds.
Clifford has more than 20 years of industry experience in driving sales strategies for numerous tech brands including Microsoft, Salesforce and Ingram Micro.
“It is a great time to work in the growing cloud market and play a role in helping BitTitan build its presence to meet the rising demand for cloud adoption,” said Clifford. “I am proud to be a part of a dynamic company that is deeply committed to its partners and ensuring they are equipped with the right tools to adapt and scale to evolving cloud demands.”
