SAN FRANCISCO – March 10, 2022 – IGEL, provider of IGEL OS, the endpoint operating system designed for VDI and DaaS, today announced the appointment of Timo Siedenberg as Vice President of Channel Sales for EMEA. In this role, Siedenberg will be focused on helping IGEL partners add new logos, and expand their skill-sets and capacity in preparation to move to IGEL’s new subscription model in the second half of 2022.
Siedenberg began his career with IGEL in 2004 as a Partner Account Manager for the Nordic region. In this role, he helped to grow IGEL’s channel business by providing sales, marketing and technical enablement for distribution partners and resellers. Since that time, Siedenberg has held a progression of roles at IGEL spanning sales operations, customer operations, services and support. Most recently, he served as Vice President, Support and Advanced Services, for the EMEA region.
“I am delighted be returning to IGEL’s channel team, and being fully focused on building our channel ecosystem to help IGEL scale and grow” said Siedenberg. “After two-years of experiencing the virtual channel model, my first initiative will be a ‘feet-on-the-street’ campaign, which will include visiting many of our key partners as possible over the next couple of month.”
Balaji Subramanian, SVP, Global Channel Chief for IGEL, said, “As part of our continued focus on the channel, we are delighted that Timo will be leading our channel sales organization in EMEA. His deep-seated knowledge of our long-standing partners, both VARs and VADs, will be very useful as we focus on expanding our enablement programs in ways that will fuel growth for both IGEL and our partners. Furthermore, his experience in supporting customer success through our services and support offerings will be tremendously helpful as we transition to a subscription model for delivering our solutions and services.”
Niels Keunecke, Chief Revenue Officer, EMEA for IGEL, added, “Having someone with Timo’s capabilities is a great asset to my team. As a 100% channel-focused company, with every sale going through a partner, Timo’s focus on building capacity in the channel with skilled partners who can co-sell with the field, or better yet, drive the entire sales cycle, will be of great benefit to IGEL.”
