Macclesfield IT firm, Axon IT, has announced the appointment and promotion of Rob Burrell to Board Member and Sales Director.
Having worked for Axon for three years, Rob (pictured) started his new role during June and he will be instrumental in developing the company’s sales function and client base.
In his new role, Rob will be responsible for the strategic leadership of the sales department, and he will deliver Axon’s commercial strategy alongside the other directors. He will also continue to lead the sales team and be a key account manager.
Rob joined Axon as their Sales Manager three years ago and during that time he has had a big impact on both the sales team and the wider business. He was brought in to take on key accounts and to develop these. Before Rob joined, Axon had grown their client base organically, and therefore his focus was on building relationships with key customers even further. He started growing the sales function 18 months ago and as the sales team expands, he is currently recruiting further team members.
Bringing a wealth of experience to his role, Rob has worked in IT for most of his career and has 20 years of IT sales experience. Prior to Axon, he worked for managed service providers and resellers, such as Channel MSP, Claranet and Advanced. Commenting on his experience working at the Macclesfield IT firm, Rob said,
Axon are really agile and gave me autonomy from day one to build the sales department and to adapt our approach. I feel passionate about leading the sales team; I want everyone to embody the role of Microsoft and technology specialists – like technology evangelists. We continue to pull together in one direction as one team – that’s what I love about Axon. If you have ideas on ways to improve our direction, the leadership team will give you the autonomy to make changes happen quickly.”
