Recently, Green Cloud Technologies was on the hunt for a new dealer sales manager for its Tennessee operations, and the nod went to a former Windstream (News - Alert) executive. Specifically, it was Robert “Mac” McClenathan who got the coveted position, and he will be moving to Green Cloud's Nashville office later this month to head up those operations.
More specifically, McClenathan will be handling the location and support of sales partners for Green Cloud's line of cloud services, including its virtual PBX and virtual server as well as disaster recovery systems. McClenathan isn't the first Windstream veteran to join up with Green Cloud, as former Windstream account executive Eric Boost also recently stepped in to handle the dealer program for South Carolina.
McClenathan is uniquely suited to the task, as he too was an account manager—a senior account manager as well—with Windstream, and had actively engaged in the tasks of finding dealers and partners for Windstream's line of cloud-based services, which also included data and PBX vendors. He was also formerly with PAETEC, who itself was acquired by Windstream, and previously with Verizon (News - Alert) Wireless in sales roles for over four years as well.
Green Cloud's program began back in January, and has a variety of outposts throughout the Southeast, developing sales engineers and channel account managers alike to bulk up its sales forces. Green Cloud is actively looking for more, however, so those with a sales bent may want to check into Green Cloud's new positions.
The company is clearly out to get the best it can in the field; McClenathan's body of experience suggests that its got a very solid entrant into their work force indeed. Admittedly, the field is rather full with competition in virtual server and disaster recovery tools, but McClenathan should already have a good library of contacts to work with, and that will be a big help. Additionally, the recent events of Hurricane Sandy have underscored the importance of disaster recovery tools, further giving Green Cloud some extra power behind their pitches.
Hopefully McClenathan, Boost, and the rest of the Green Cloud team can find success in a very competitive market.
