Westcon Adds Focus with Daniel O’Hare as New UK Video Sales Lead
Crawley, 18th June 2015 – WestconGroup is targeting growth amongst its video channel with the appointment of Daniel O’Hare as UK Video Sales Manager for its Unified Communications and Collaboration Solutions practice.
Daniel joins Westcon with over 15 years in the Audio-Visual, Video-conferencing and Unified Communications market, most recently at the integrator SCC. The new role will see Daniel lead Westcon’s dedicated video sales team, tasked with managing opportunities with existing partners and taking new video collaboration technologies to market.
Over the last year WestconGroup has complimented its video portfolio with new vendors Tely Labs and SMART’s Skype for Business Room System (SRS). Daniel’s team will concentrate on identifying the UC sales opportunities where video can add real value to an end-user and real revenue for channel partners, then provide a plan for taking partners beyond just voice.
“The video market continues to be a key part of Westcon’s collaboration play, both for enterprise and increasingly SMB users” comments Tony Nevill, UK&I Sales Lead, WestconGroup. “The emerging applications for video in many business scenarios now means partners need a fit-for-purpose, fully integrated offering. Daniel and his team are perfectly positioned to advise partners on those options and increase their revenue from the associated network provisioning and maintenance services”.
