Arbor Networks, which provides network security and management solutions, has promoted Jeremy Nicholls to global vice president of channel sales and alliances.
Nicholls most recently was director of channel sales and business development in the EMEA region. Prior to joining Arbor, he worked as VP of sales, EMEA, for Niksun, and has run many sales teams selling via the channel and direct sales into both the enterprise and service provider markets.
“I am thrilled to step into this leadership role with responsibility for the health and maturity of our global channel sales and alliances program," said Jeremy Nicholls. “My two immediate charters are to bolster revenue driven through our channel and alliances partnerships and to make it easier for our partners to work with us. Arbor puts such important technology into the hands of partners all over the world, and I look forward to working closely with them to evolve existing partner relationships and to create new ones, going forward."
The Arbor Advantage partner program has four levels – Authorized, Advantage, Premier and Elite. The company says it accommodates for varying partners' business models while better differentiating them in the market based on their capabilities and the investments that they make in marketing and training to help them sell and support Arbor solutions.
