Sigma Solutions Welcomes Mike Moates as VP of Sales
Moates will lead Sigma’s sales activities and vendor partnerships across 11 regional markets to help Sigma continue its aggressive growth.
SAN ANTONIO — November 30, 2012 — Sigma Solutions announced today that IT industry veteran Mike Moates has joined its executive management team as Vice President of Sales. Moates will lead Sigma’s sales organization and work closely with Sigma’s vendor partners to develop and implement strategies for accelerating Sigma’s growth while maintaining its commitment to its customers’ success.
“We are very excited to have a professional of Mike’s caliber in this strategic position,” said Scott Gruendler, President, Sigma Solutions. “This is a new position within Sigma, one that will enable us to unify our sales operations across our 11 regional offices. We believe Mike will help us build upon our strong organic growth and take the company to the next level.”
“I’ve been involved with Sigma in one form or another for the last 15 years and have had the pleasure of seeing the company grow and differentiate itself in the marketplace by focusing on its customers, enabling them to derive business value from their IT investments.” Moates said. “Sigma has a strong presence in multiple markets but each office operates somewhat independently. My job is to bring these independent operations together and bring greater consistency to our go-to-market message.”
Moates began his career in the IT industry at IBM and with resellers ComputerLand and Datasys Corporation. He then spent 15 years with Sun Microsystems in both channel and direct sales, serving as Area Vice President for the Central and Southern US. Since 2010, Moates has served as VMware’s Director of Partner Sales for the South Central U.S.
“It’s very exciting to return to the reseller channel, particularly in today’s dynamic IT environment,” said Moates. “Customers look to systems integrators to help them select and implement the right technologies. Vendors leverage their relationships with reseller partners in
order to grow. Sigma is uniquely positioned to bring together products from various vendors to provide the complete solution customers are looking for today.
“Collectively, Sigma has expertise across all the key data center technologies, broad visibility across the customer’s enterprise and strong relationships with its vendor partners. I am looking forward to helping Sigma fuse these resources and demonstrate to both partners and customers the core strengths we bring to the marketplace.”
