**Editor’s Note: Click here to see which channel people were on the move in December and January.**
Todd Scarborough is X4 Solutions’ new vice president of cloud solutions.
The channel veteran comes to the Chicago-based master agency from Cbeyond – now part of Birch Communications – where he was a cloud channel manager. Stationed in the western U.S., he worked with enterprise VARs. At X4, he is tasked with helping partners build and strengthen their cloud computing and managed-services practices.
A Marine, Scarborough enlisted after 9/11 and served in Iraq.
Elsewhere, cloud ERP vendor FinancialForce.com hired Johnny Ola to lead its channel.
Ola is the company’s new vice president of global alliances and business development. His job is to expand FinancialForce’s partnerships with systems integrators and to work closely with ISVs to sell integrated solutions.
“FinancialForce.com has experienced explosive growth over the last year and as we build on this momentum, we are committed to making significant investments that will deliver considerably more value to our customers,” said Adrian Ivanov, vice president of worldwide sales at FinancialForce.com. “Partnerships will play an integral role in helping us build and deliver the best portfolio of solutions in the industry, implemented at greater speed and with higher customer satisfaction. Johnny has a proven track record in this arena and will be a key driver in further expanding the FinancialForce.com ecosystem.”
Ola’s last job was general manager at RemedyForce, a division of BMC Software that sells software service-management solutions built on the Salesforce1 Platform – the platform FinancialForce.com also uses.
