Supporting increased volume in complex enterprise sales
Marietta, GA – MicroCorp, an advanced solutions distributor for data, voice, Unified Communications and data center services, announces the addition of Brant Elliot as sales engineer, serving as a pre-sales engineering resource focused on advanced hosted solutions and cloud optimization opportunities. The addition of Elliot is in direct response to the volume of cloud opportunities since the April launch of the MicroCorp Cloud Division, MicroCorp’s consultancy resource for SMB and enterprise opportunities.
Elliot is a proven Systems Engineer with more than a decade of experience designing and engineering IT systems within large-scale organizations – particularly governmental and educational sectors. He has managed IT operations and security risk assessment for the US Army, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Department of Homeland Security, and more than 40 tech transfer offices around the world. His specific areas of expertise include systems architecture, optimization of virtualized environments, and helping the industry migrate to the cloud.
Elliot will offer provider-neutral engineering support in the areas of colocation, hosted, hybrid, cloud, security, IaaS, Hosted Desktop and DRaaS solutions. Most recently, Elliot served as CTO of Stealz, Inc., where he was also a co-founder.
“Our channel partners are met daily with sophisticated solutions requirements,” commented MicroCorp president, Phil Keenan. “The talent and practical experience Brant will provide simply accelerates a partner’s ability to close the sale, but more importantly grow the sale.”
Elliot will be a central figure in MicroCorp’s Ultimate Partner Training, a series of provider-neutral workshops that allow attendees to walk away with a blueprint to transform their business and add new technologies to their own portfolio.
Channel partners who have engaged MicroCorp engineering resources for complex pre-sales support have routinely found new opportunities to add value and a more complete solution within new and existing client relationships.
