Canada is known for maple syrup, the legendary Wayne Gretsky and, of course, a national passion for ice hockey. Now, IGEL is bringing its own passion – for delivering the world’s best endpoint security and optimization software – to Canada with an expanded team of sales and channel leaders.
As IGEL’s first Canada country manager, based in our Toronto office, I have to say I am more than delighted to help tell our Canadian colleagues about IGEL’s simple, secure and cost-effective solutions for remote management of endpoint devices. Having worked for more than a decade developing go-to-market strategies and expanding sales channels in the endpoint and endpoint security and optimization software space, I believe IGEL’s approach to end user computing is the absolute best fit for how enterprises operate today. They need to deliver productive, secure desktops to users on any device, anywhere, and IGEL is the best solution for this in the market today.
We are fortunate to have Michael Berman joining our Canadian team as sales engineer. Michael is a Citrix veteran who spent nearly a decade focused on Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop and XenServer solutions. IGEL clients will find Michael has an encyclopedic knowledge of VDI and no doubt, they will see quickly how Michael will help them deploy IGEL solutions and improve productivity so smoothly they’ll have time to check those hockey games!
IGEL is a channel-first company so our expanded Canadian presence wouldn’t be complete without stepping up our partner program. We are happy to announce Compugen as the region’s first IGEL Platinum Partner. Compugen, one of Canada’s top IT solutions and service providers, has been an IGEL partner for some time and is the perfect fit for helping us grow the Canadian market. Working with our channel team to expand our footprint is our distribution partner, Ingram Micro Canada.
Not a bad start to a new era of IGEL in Canada, eh? Whether you say the Canadian eh, or the American awesome, one thing is certain: we at IGEL Canada are ready to make 2018 a powerful sales year!
Please email me to say hello! We can talk endpoint security and optimization, maple syrup, hockey and predictions on the Olympics!
