Why Liquid Web, Why Now?

I’m excited about joining Liquid Web as their new VP of Channel Sales and Partner Solutions. I would like you to know why.

I’m a sales guy. I love connecting the right solutions with the people who will reap their benefits. And I love doing that in the Hosting industry. Technology is expanding the opportunities every day for small and mid-size businesses to bring new and innovative products and solutions to market. These SMBs are changing our world and a big part of that success depends on their web presence and cloud technologies. Enter Liquid Web, a partner that powers the potential of their customers.

I join Liquid Web from Media Temple, a GoDaddy company where I served as Vice President of Sales. Before my time at Media Temple, I served as an Enterprise and Agency Account Executive at WP Engine. In both of these great companies, I had the pleasure of interacting with the designers, developers and agencies that build and host for these SMB mission critical sites, stores and apps. It’s a world I know and one that I have a great deal of passion around.

So why Liquid Web, why now?

I’ve been in the industry for years and know about Liquid Web. High performance hosting, exceptional support and innovative products. It’s the trifecta for a Sales guy.

And with Liquid Web, I’m joining a team that wants to shift the paradigm in Partner Programs. Liquid Web wants to shift beyond simply driving for Creators to bring us revenue and move into a relationship that will help these businesses be successful. We intend to build a Liquid Web partner platform that will be less about us and more about them. Our goal is to connect in an even more meaningful way with solutions and engagement that will help our Creators grow and thrive.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my two young daughters, chasing golf balls and rooting for the long-suffering Tennessee Volunteers, Houston Rockets and the Houston Astros.

I look forward to meeting our Liquid Web Creators and Partners.  And I look forward to bringing new designers, developers and agencies to the Liquid Web family.
