Distology, the specialist IT cybersecurity distributor, has bolstered its senior team with the appointment of new sales director, Rob Darby.
With 20 years’ experience, Rob brings a wealth of knowledge with him having held roles in senior positions at businesses across the tech sector, including Pulsant, Ingram Micro and Comms-Care.
Rob will be responsible for maintaining relationships with Distology’s existing partners and vendors, while playing an instrumental part in Distology’s next stage of growth. As part of his role, Rob will be helping the business expand its team as it continues to scale.
“Channel is my passion and has been the key focus of my career to date, so I’m really excited to be joining the team at Distology. As part of my role here, I’ll be working closely with specialist teams to progress our partner recruitment strategy, while also developing the way partners take our technology to market to solve the ever changing and complex cybersecurity needs of their customers.
“It’s a really exciting time to have joined the business and I’m thrilled to be working alongside a strong team to build on the solid foundations which are already in place” comments Rob.
“We’re thrilled to have Rob on board! Rob has a proven track record in sales and helping businesses to grow, so his skills will not only bolster our already talented and innovative team, but will also help us achieve our ambitious growth plans,” comments Hayley Roberts, CEO of Distology.
The business, which holds key partnerships with specialist technology vendors, increased its revenues by more than 75% over the past three years and also gained private equity investment from NorthEdge Capital last year.
