Park Place Technologies, a global data center and networking optimization firm, announced the promotion of Chad Jones to Senior Director of Channel Sales, North America. Continuing his 12-year career with the company, he will be responsible for the success and growth of Park Place’s North American channel business and leading the 30-person team that supports its nearly 700 resellers in the United States and Canada.
Prior to this promotion, Jones worked for two years in London leading Park Place’s EMEA channel sales division to align the team abroad with best practices. The EMEA channel business grew by more than 30 percent during his stint there.
Prior to that, he spent nearly a decade in development and sales roles growing Park Place’s channel team. He led two of the company’s largest partners – SHI and CDW. For his new role, Jones returned to Ohio and is based out of Park Place’s Mayfield headquarters.
“I’m most looking forward to working with the incredible North American channel team, many of whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with in previous years at Park Place,” said Jones. “The team’s energy and optimism is high, which is great for our partners’ businesses as well as our own. We’re here to adapt and grow together with our partners as we solve unprecedented challenges through technology and turn IT hurdles into opportunities.”
Jones will report to Park Place Technologies Chief Revenue Officer Michael Vedda. The two will be working closely together in his new role.
Jones has more than 20 years of experience working in the technology industry.
