WinMagic is a global organization that’s seeing a lot of success in market today. With success comes growth and we continue to see strong market demand in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and India. We’ve had solid presence in these markets but have upped the ante this fiscal year.
Our continued expansion follows a successful 2013 that saw our presence grow significantly year over year with increased personnel investments in Germany, the U.K. and United Arab Emirates. Most recently we’ve significantly beefed up our EMEA presence with the introduction of a new VP and GM of EMEA and India – Darin Welfare.
Darin brings more than 14 years of experience to WinMagic. In his career, he’s provided sales leadership across EMEA and Asia Pacific, including a successful tenure at Parametric Technology, where most recently he led a successful strategy to offer enterprise customers solutions based on products from three different parts of the company’s portfolio.
Darin is already making an impact, setting up our new office in the U.K. and building out our teams in that region with the recent addition of a new country manager, Nishant Verma, leading WinMagic in India. Nishant has a long track record building sales programs for IT infrastructure and security firms, especially those that appeal to public facing entities in India. He comes to WinMagic from Tata Consultancy Services.
To say things are heating up at WinMagic would be an understatement. We’re investing heavily in our products and our people, with this continued growth, we expect to see continued success through 2014.
