Earlier this month, I joined Liquid Web as their Chief Revenue Officer to oversee revenue operations for the Liquid Web and Nexcess brands. I would like you to know why.
Taking this new role, just as the world has turned upside down, is exactly the right step for me. Now more than ever, there is great value in connecting the right solutions with the people who will reap their benefits. Now more than ever, business is moving online and our wide product portfolio can meet their needs, whether they are just getting started, or looking for higher performance solutions to handle new traffic surges. These SMBs are changing our world and a big part of that success depends on their web presence and cloud technologies. I am grateful to have an opportunity to lead an amazing and diverse sales organization that is focused on helping customers not only survive during these times but thrive.
Why The Liquid Web Family of Brands, why now?
I’ve been in the technology space for years now, and I’ve known about Liquid Web’s high-performance hosting, exceptional support, and innovative products. And I’ve competed and lost against Nexcess as they became the industry leader in Magento with their high-performance Cloud and eCommerce expertise. So when Nexcess joined the Liquid Web family last year, I took notice. These two companies are developing the product and open-source platform capabilities that SMB customers and their developers have been asking for. And, I am excited to apply my 20 years of experience to see how we can continue to wow and serve those customers.
You will find me creating a world-class direct sales and partner channel that uses their expertise to understand the needs of our SMB customers and the designers, developers, and agencies who create for them. With high-performance traditional, cloud, and hybrid hosting environments and a truly managed, Cloud solution built to optimize Magento, WooCommerce and WordPress sites, stores and applications, our teams have the ability to help our customers choose the best product for their project. And I will be a champion for the products, programs, and processes that help our customers grow their businesses. A wide product portfolio, a reputation for high performance and exceptional support, and a culture focused on the customer … it’s a dream job.
About me. Born and raised in Virginia, but career choices allowed me to call London, Washington, D.C., and Vail, Colorado home. While I started my career as a high school teacher and wrestling coach, I’ve also had the gift of working with Technology winners Microsoft and Rackspace. I was raised in a Fanatical customer culture at both Webmail.us and then Rackspace. Along the way, I’ve been surrounded by exceptional leaders who have helped me develop my own style and method. Core for me is building teams, growing leaders, and serving customers. Being accessible, responsive, and engaged with my team is important to me – and, as we work remote, more critical than ever.
I look forward to meeting our Liquid Web and Nexcess customers. And I look forward to bringing new customers to the Liquid Web Family of Brands. If I can help you, please reach out.
