Node4 makes strategic hire to grow company

Customer relationships

Cloud, datacentre and communications specialist Node4 has appointed John MacMillan to the newly created role of sales director to spearhead a new phase of development as part of the company’s growth strategy for 2016.

MacMillan (pictured) was previously head of health at Daisy Group, running a team within Daisy Managed Services focused on delivering services to the UK healthcare market. Prior to that he was sales director at Annodata, and head of health at Azzurri.

The firm says MacMillan it’s looking to be “a true end-to-end IT partner for both customers and the channel, with a focus on customer retention and expanding into new vertical markets.”

MacMillan will lead a team of 30+ sales, pre-sales and account managers to focus on growing revenues within the enterprise midmarket, as well strategic vertical sectors. This includes the public sector, where MacMillan says he will capitalise on Node4’s recent listing on G-Cloud 7 to meet growing demand for cloud-based services through its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering.

“Node4 has already achieved a phenomenal level of growth by evolving its service offering in response to customer needs, but I could see a clear opportunity to take the business to the next level with its powerful combination of technical expertise and industry-leading solutions,” says MacMillan. “I’m looking forward to building a highly focused, ambitious team that will put Node4 ahead of the curve and deliver the transformational projects that will help deliver our fast growth strategy for 2016.”

Adds Paul Bryce, business development director at Node4: “John brings a wealth of experience to Node4 that will be instrumental in driving our next phase of growth. We have purpose-built our service offering to meet the market need for an agile IT partner with the technology solutions and market expertise and insight to take our customers’ businesses to the next level. John’s appointment will ensure we can deliver on our promise to be a strategic partner of choice in the market.”
