Expands National Team and In-Market SME Support
Petaluma, CA (July 18, 2019) – Intelisys, Inc., a ScanSource company, and the nation’s leading provider of technology services, has announced Andrew Rustad as Solutions Engineer for the Southeast Region.
As the rapidly expanding digital frontier opens up for end-users to develop digital transformations for their companies, businesses are migrating away from legacy systems and to the cloud faster than ever before. Andrew’s role is strategic to supporting, guiding, and educating Intelisys Sales Partners as they target and close deals with their customers capitalizing on these technology shifts.
“Companies are at the point where customer experience is the differentiator between them and their competition, and it opens up a lot of opportunities for our Sales Partners to talk to organizations on how they can improve that,” said Andrew Rustad, Intelisys’ new Solutions Engineer for the Southeast Region. “Being sales-centric, as well as technically-centric, I am able to better assist our Sales Partners in creating and maintaining productive dialogue with their customers. I want Sales Partners to know that I am here for them; I’m ready to jump in on opportunities, strategize, establish goals, and help their businesses really grow.”
Based out of the northeastern Florida area, Andrew brings with him more than 25 years of telecom and client management experience, most recently being in a senior technical position with Verizon Enterprise Solutions. Previous to working with Verizon, he held sales and solutions engineering positions with leading channel companies such as NICE InContact, Windstream Enterprise, and Comcast.
Andrew has historically been a top team contributor and leader in delivering successful solutions to increase productivity, improving change management, and minimizing risk, while increasing revenue and reducing total cost of ownership. He specializes in a multitude of technologies, including UCaaS, CCaaS, PaaS, SD-WAN, Private IP, Public/Private/Hybrid Cloud, Cyber Security, RTA, Compliance, and many other cloud-based SaaS technologies.
“We feel Andrew is a great fit because of his deep background in the channel, and his proven talent at building and developing strong partner relationships,” said Raymond Nelson, Senior Director of Solutions Engineering for Intelisys. “Andrew’s greatest strength is his ability to adapt, grow and change as technology evolves. He will be instrumental to our Sales Partners’ success as he helps to educate them on the latest technologies available through the Intelisys portfolio, as well as guides them to the best overall solutions for their customers. While engaging with Sales Partners on complex cloud opportunities, Andrew will be able to serve as a highly qualified extension of their team.”
