Christine Webering is the newest addition to RapidScale’s management team.

RapidScale's Christine WeberingWebering, the managed cloud provider’s new strategic development manager, is tasked with building and growing relationships within Avant Communications and its partners — specifically, the master agent’s large VARs. Look for her role to expand as other big masters that need additional support are brought on board.

Webering most recently was a senior account manager at IT reseller giant CDW, a business she will continue to work with in her new job. At CDW, she was responsible for IT sales in the Higher Education division in three Midwestern states, growing her portion of the business by triple-digits each of the five years she was there.

“I feel extremely blessed to be in such a position with RapidScale and to still be working with some of my old colleagues,” says Christine. “After selling hardware for the past seven years, I saw the industry begin to move over to the cloud. Instead of running from it, I decided to focus on it and become as knowledgeable as I could. I am very excited about my position and even more excited to get to work with a company with such a sterling reputation. I look forward to growing my knowledge, growing my territory, and growing within RapidScale.”{ad}

“We are very excited to have [Christine] join the RapidScale team. Christine brings a strong industry experience and solid sales background to RapidScale. Her knowledge of the marketplace and close relationships will be a great value to our company. With the hiring of Christine, we are adding yet another layer to our ongoing goal of providing the best possible supplier support to our key sales partners in the channel. Christine will be supporting one of our top-producing master-agent partners, Avant Communications, in Chicago and surrounding markets. We believe that this is the evolution of cloud computing in the channel and a key differentiator that RapidScale provides to key partners.”
