avsnet today celebrated its financial end of year with substantial growth figures and the appointment of Cisco and unified communications specialist, Billy Haining, as the company’s new Head of Sales: Network & UC
Following the company’s acquisition of Besttel earlier this year and its continued expansion, Haining has been brought on-board to head up the company’s network, UC and data offering. With a strong background in managing network infrastructure sales teams, Haining’s appointment bolsters avsnet’s internal Network and UC division while building upon avsnet’s strong heritage in delivering market-leading business communication technology.
Billy Haining said, “This is an exciting step for both myself and avsnet. With its focus on customer service and equally impressive understanding of UC technology and how it transforms businesses, avsnet is the perfect company for me to join. I’m looking forward to helping the company achieve even more success moving forward.”
With over 15 years telecommunications experience earned at companies Total Network Solutions and Intrinsic Technology, as well as working at Cisco where he headed up leading strategic accounts including some of the largest government divisions, Haining’s specialism is further proven by the wide range of successful projects he has won and delivered into multiple sectors, including Government, Health, Commercial, Financial, Pharmaceutical, Manufacturing, Legal and Retail.
Haining’s Cisco expertise, combined with a solid understanding of converged network technology, UC solutions and proven sales strategies, will help avsnet capitalise on the large scale growth it has experienced in its last financial year.
Graham Fry, Managing Director at avsnet, concluded, “Billy is a model professional with an acute understanding of the culture of unified communications. He has an exceptional technological understanding, but what is even more impressive is the ways he gets to the heart of businesses to provide the exact solutions they need to transform themselves. I welcome him to avsnet and look forward to the success he will surely bring.”
