To support the breakneck pace of our growth, we’re building out the Magento Sales Leadership team. I’m excited to share two pieces of news about our growing team.
Jary Carter is moving into a new role as Head of Worldwide Sales and Channel. In this new role, Jary will be responsible for Magento sales around the world. He’ll oversee the sales and channel organizations, including our Customer Success Group.
Since joining Magento as Head of North American Sales and Channel in September of 2010, Jary has been instrumental in building and rolling out a new sales model, hiring a high-performance sales team, and helping to drive revenue growth. We’re excited about the contributions that Jary will make to Magento and X.commerce as a global sales leader.
I’m also excited to introduce a new sales leader to the Magento team: Ben Pressley. Ben joined us last week as Head of North American Sales. Ben has extensive sales and leadership experience in open source software, and has held several positions with Novell’s Linux business. He received his undergraduate degree in organizational behavior from the University of Colorado and holds a Masters of Information Systems from the University of Utah.
Please join me in welcoming Ben, and in wishing Ben and Jary the best of luck in their new roles!
