CipherTrust, Inc., today announced the appointment of Oliver Carter as channel manager for the UK. Oliver's appointment is a direct result of CipherTrust's strategic move towards a single-tier channel model and further strengthens the CipherTrust UK sales team.
David Stanley, VP and managing director, CipherTrust, EMEA, commented: "Oliver joins CipherTrust with extensive experience from the UK channel market. Oliver has an excellent reputation for delivering results and is a recognised face in the channel. His appointment not only gives the partners a direct touch into CipherTrust in the UK, it also strengthens our commitment to a single-tier channel model and a strategy of true partnership."
Oliver joins CipherTrust with over five years of channel experience, having held key channel management roles during his most recent position at Sophos. During his tenure with the anti-virus company, Oliver was responsible for moving Sophos from direct sales to a 100 per cent channel model, developing and implementing the channel partner programme and personally managing the larger UK partners.
Stanley continued: "CipherTrust's growth plans are very aggressive for the UK during 2005. We can only achieve this by building upon the work that our existing channel partners have done and by developing new partner relationships to give us the breadth and depth to deliver upon our plans. Oliver's appointment will prove instrumental in that growth and his role is to make CipherTrust's channel partners a success."
