“This promotion recognizes the leadership role that John has played, and activity that he has driven since joining the organization.” said Doug Knudtson, COO for Maxcess.
Joining Maxcess in July 2012 as vp-sales-North America, Walker was initially focused on returning the company to a direction of sales growth. Driven by an interest to create a global marketing and communication presence for the company, he took over leadership of the company’s marketing and communication presence in mid-2013.
“In addition to leading sales and marketing, John played a key role in the process which culminated in the sale and merger of the company with Webex in January,” said Greg Jehlik, CEO for Maxcess.
Walker has additionally led the coordination of global activity, including global sales channel coordination, multi-national account coordination and modernization of sales generating tactics. He will continue that activity in this new role.
“Maxcess is unique in our industry, in that we truly have a global footprint from which to serve our markets,” said Walker. “The need for enhanced global coordination will only increase as we continue to grow our business both organically and through acquisition. I am excited to help lead that effort”
