Legare most recently held multiple senior leadership positions with Windstream, including manager of sales engineering and senior network design specialist. Prior to his tenure with Windstream, he served as a sales executive with AT&T for 16 years.
In his new role, he will support sales partners in Intelisys’ central region and will report to Raymond Nelson, director of solutions engineering.
“It’s rare to find two customers with the same solutions needs, even smaller businesses; and I strive to be an extension of my sales partners, working in service of their customers,” Legare said. “I’m committed to customization, follow-through and life-cycle relationship management. The channel is better positioned than any other segment in the industry to capitalize on technology growth. As compute becomes virtualized, customers are looking for a trusted adviser. It’s a privilege to be part of that relationship and part of the Intelisys team.”
Legare is known for bringing a structured approach to the optimization of cloud and networking technologies, producing benefits to clients in terms of cost and increased services to internal customers, and providing increased value to Intelisys sales partners, the company said. He is proficient at creating tailored offerings that address corporate challenges by maximizing new technologies in cloud computing, security, cloud-based networking, and voice-data convergence, while incorporating business continuity and disaster recovery, it said.
“Tom has built a trusted brand reputation in both the direct and indirect channels, and his deep knowledge of cloud technology and expertise with network design makes him the perfect fit for Intelisys,” Nelson said. “We are experiencing remarkable growth in the central region, and our sales partners will benefit from the additional support and dedicated, regional solutions engineering resources.”
In August, Intelisys announced the hiring of its seventh solutions engineer.
