Exertis’ Sarah Potter promoted to networking general manager

Shaking hands

Exertis has announced the restructuring of its networking team, promoting B2B business development manager (Computing) Sarah Potter to networking general manager.

Potter's role will be to develop an enterprise proposition for 2016, managing commercial relationships with vendors, including helping to build their product ranges and developing communications with B2B and retail customers.

She will work closely with the VAD solutions team, promoting the company's white-label services proposition to resellers and helping Exertis' reseller partners leverage the networking sales opportunities via both vendor-specific and multi-vendor solutions.

Exertis says it chose to promote Potter because her knowledge and experience complements the company's pre-sales assistance and support, vendor training accreditation and enablement, installation support and maintenance, as well as its white-label services.

Potter comments: “I’m really excited about 2016 and our enhanced enterprise networks proposition and not least the opportunity that exists with Dell’s networking solutions. These have really taken off since November, as we’ve been able to offer the end-to-end Dell solution from hardware, software and services.”

As part of the division reshuffle, Exertis has also announced a number of new appointments. Ex-Netgear network business manager Warren Haines will join the department as enterprise networks business manager and will manage relationships with Dell, Huawei, Allied and Avocent, while Amanda Henley has been appointed networks product specialist, supporting networking brands such as Netgear, TP Link and D-Link.

Previous networks business manager Rod Slater will move to Exertis' new Smart Home business, tasked with finding new opportunities for the company within the smart home sector.
