“Over the past decade in previous roles, I have been responsible for strengthening partner relationships in the West and building out a successful cloud practice,” Himmler said. “I’m excited to bring my cloud expertise and strong partner relationships to RapidScale and be a part of this awesome team at an exciting time.”

Himmler spent five years as a regional channel manager at Navisite, managing partners and assisting in the design and delivery of cloud solutions for their clients. He also had sales and channel roles with Snappt, Unitas Global and Joyent.

“Christian brings extensive knowledge in the cloud-computing space, and we’re thrilled to have another industry veteran join the RapidScale sales team,” said Bob Buchanan, RapidScale’s executive vice president of sales. “We are committed to attracting top talent. I’m positive that Christian will quickly make an impact in the southern California region and provide a second-to-none partner experience in the cloud services industry.”

Last summer, Cox Business acquired RapidScale. Cox expanded its managed services and cloud portfolio with the acquisition.
