Content services provider Hyland has announced the appointment of Bob Dunn as its new vice president of Global Partner Programs.

The industry veteran steps up to the role having spent the last six years growing Hyland’s international sales and operational practices in multiple regions, including EMEA, APAC, and LATAM.

Dunn’s new role will be dedicated to assessing and growing Hyland’s investment and support of its partner ecosystem, as the company looks to drive global growth.

“Bob has been an incredible asset to Hyland, providing a selfless passion for Hyland’s success,” commented Ed McQuiston, EVP and chief commercial officer at Hyland.

“His global presence, combined with his time working within the Hyland ecosystem, makes him uniquely qualified for the expansion of his remit to include leadership of our US and international Channel and Alliances groups.”

Dunn will work closely with Hyland’s Strategic Alliances and Channel teams, building greater alignment with the firm’s channel strategies to expand and support its partners.

“Bob is charged with improving on and evolving a set of programs that maximises opportunities for Hyland and its partners, to assist our mutual customers in accelerating their digital transformation initiatives,” McQuiston added.

Hyland’s partner ecosystem includes multiple segments that support more than 400 VARs, solution partners, system integrators, and strategic alliance partners across multiple industries.

The firm says joining its partner community helps tech providers deliver more agile processes, empowered employees, and connected customers. Its programmes are designed to support partners building their business practices around Hyland offerings to sell, design, and implement end-to-end digital solutions.

“I’m beyond excited to continue my more than 30-year journey dedicated to the content services industry, helping organisations around the world take better control of their content and evolve business operations to remain competitive and provide the best service to their customers,” said Bob Dunn, Hyland’s new VP of Global Partner Programs.

“I’m looking forward to growing and evolving Hyland’s partner programs with a cloud-first approach, connecting technology providers with the content services, intelligent automation, collaboration, and business process automation tools organisations need to support new and evolving business operations.”
