Please join us in welcoming to the AVANT team Rob Merhej, as Senior Channel Manager of the UK!  Rob comes to AVANT with vast IT sales experience in both the channel and direct.  His working knowledge of our industry and the UK market positions AVANT strongly as the first in the channel to expand to the UK, both in footprint and in resources on-the-street.

AVANT is in the middle of an aggressive growth spurt, having recently made a number of strategic hires including a Chief Strategy OfficerDirector of Product, a Director of Channel, and a channel manager for our expansion into Texas; among a number of other additions to the back office, which continues as we search for a VP of Finance and a Channel Manager for the West Coast.

Now we’re excited to announce a new hire for a position that has been driven by our growth overseas; specifically our expansion to the UK market, where we will support local UK based partners selling locally, as well as domestic US partners selling into the UK and European markets.

“AVANT’s expansion into the UK market last year has been a big success, enough to necessitate the hiring of a talented resource like Rob that has not only the experience in the local market, but also in the partner channel selling next-generation IT solutions.” said Ian Kieninger, CEO of AVANT.  “Rob is now a critical piece to our global expansion making AVANT the first in the channel to organically expand into international markets to support both US based and European partners.”

“I am excited to become part of a great team offering a fantastic service which is quite unique in the UK.” said Rob.  “I’m looking forward to having very successful relationships throughout the UK Channel and help AVANT’s business grow as well as my partners.”

With this addition to the team, AVANT is one step closer to realizing our vision of enabling partners around the world to grow their business and sell more next-gen IT solutions than ever before.  Talk to AVANT today to learn how our UK expansion can help you!
