Green Cloud Technologies, a startup cloud technology solutions provider based in Greenville, S.C., has hired Dave Hopper as its dealer manager in Charleston.
Hopper will focus on sales of the company's virtual server, disaster recovery, and virtual PBX solutions and will be responsible for identifying, engaging, and supporting sales partners to bring Green Cloud solutions to Lowcountry businesses.
Hopper will be based out of Green Cloud’s Charleston, S.C.-area location which opened in early July. He will join Randy Friedberg, vice president of sales for Green Cloud Technologies, at the office located in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. Frieberg, who had been running the office for Green Cloud, is now leading their southeast region sales.
Prior to joining Green Cloud, Hopper served as a director of account management at Windstream. Prior to that he served as a sales engineer at Windstream.
“Dave’s experience as both a sales engineer and sales manager makes him one of the best all-around dealer managers in the industry," says Friedberg. “Dave can design applications with the most technical IT director, then turn around and sell the solution to the least technical end user. This unique ability allows him to earn the trust of his dealers and their customers. We are extremely excited to add Dave to the Green Cloud team."
Green Cloud, a cloud solutions provider that is relying on such platforms as BroadSoft, Cisco and VMware, launches services this month. Led by a team of industry veterans that founded NuVox Communications, the company offers managed IT and telecom solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, including virtual server, hosted PBX, unified communications and business continuity solutions.
