There’s a new leader in charge of driving customer growth and increasing revenue through Verizon’s direct and indirect enterprise distribution channels.
George Fischer has been named senior vice president of global sales at Verizon Enterprise Solutions. He leads a team of 2,100 sales professionals in 82 countries, driving sales of the company’s strategic solutions.
Fischer has more than 20 years of senior leadership experience in global sales, service, client operations and general management. Most recently, he was CA Technologies’ executive VP of worldwide sales and service, heading a $4.4 billion business where he led the transformation of CA’s sales organization through various product and service business models, delivery platforms and the integration of several acquisitions. During his career at CA, Fischer also played a key role in re-engineering CA’s go-to-market and customer engagement strategies and driving new product growth, renewing existing customer contracts and expanding overseas markets, Verizon said.
“Nobody else has Verizon’s combination of integrated solutions and technology assets, including enterprise cloud, world-class security, the nation’s largest, most reliable 4G LTE network and secure global IP networks,” Fischer said. “We can help clients change their market trajectory by offering them ways to improve their customer service and operational efficiency, and expand into new markets. It is an exciting time to join Verizon.”
Fischer’s other experience includes stints at Memorex Telex, NCR and Reltech.
