Extreme Networks has appointed Bob Gault as vice president of global channels and partners. Gault will build Extreme’s channel partner program (which has 2,500 members) into a core element of its growth and innovation strategy, the company said.
“Extreme has achieved a tremendous position with its channel partners during the past two years under Theresa’s leadership, having successfully integrated the channel programs of two companies into a strong global channel partner ecosystem,” said Jeff White, chief revenue officer for Extreme Networks. “With his unique skills and experience, Bob will further build our channel program into a strategic asset for Extreme Networks and our partners to achieve growth.”
Gault has devoted more than 26 years to the channel with experience in sales and marketing with solution service providers. He was most recently vice president of Cisco’s Cloud and Managed Services Partner Organization, where he drove the worldwide go-to-market strategy, recruited channel partners across the ecosystem, focused on field sales enablement and profitability by helping channel partners monetize their investments while accelerating the adoption of cloud and managed services into the market.
