(The Hosting News) – Web hosting provider SingleHop today announced two key hires to its sales organization. The company says that both new team members are industry veterans, with 15 years combined experience in the hosting field. Michael Crosse was appointed as its new Channel Program Manager, and Jim Tremmel was appointed as Director of Sales.
It avers that Mike Crosse’s extensive experience includes James Tower Hosting and Hostway Corporation as a Business Development Executive and Channel Sales Manager. He brings extensive experience in developing special programs to meet client, partner, and reseller needs. The company adds that Mike sat on the Tech2020 Committee for the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, and is a member of the Illinois Technology Association. It states that Jim Tremmel brings SingleHop over twenty years of business-to-business sales and sales management experience. Recently, he worked as a sales manager for Hostway and as an independent consultant in Marketing and Business Development for cloud computing companies. Jim is excited about working hand-in-hand with clients to understand their needs and contribute to their growth.
One of Mike’s core responsibilities will be the development of the Tandem program. Mike commented, “Tandem is a superior program in the reseller hosting environment, and making it better is an exciting, enticing proposition!” He promises that the program will maintain a “customer-centric approach, attention to details, a conduit for resellers to offer opinions on the program, and a push internally to make improvements a reality.”
‘As our clients grow,” Jim comments, “we can help by evaluating their web presence and making sure they are taking full advantage of all the tools and products available to them.” Jim also remarked, “Right now it is all about the cloud: it is vital that we work with small- and medium-sized businesses to help them take full advantage of all that cloud computing has to offer. Applications are becoming more advanced, so it is important that clients and prospects find true partners to work with when hosting their applications.”
Dan Ushman, SingleHop’s VP of Sales and Marketing, commented that “Jim and Mike both bring tremendous experience to SingleHop’s management team. While Mike focuses on channels and resellers, Jim will focus on our retail business. I am very pleased to welcome them both to the SingleHop family.”
