“It is always a great pleasure to work alongside Andrew as I have done at Red Hat for a number of years, specifically, but not limited to Storage opportunities. Andrew possesses strong sales acumen, is confident and very personable; his passionate approach and wonderful manner in front of clients helps lead the customer along the road to a sale. He can portray a compelling motivation to purchase supported by strong technical knowledge. Andrew really cares about the customer and his strong in-depth knowledge in his role of Business Development continues long after the initial sale – involving global business and technical leaders within Red Hat when required. A great and colourful presenter, and an outstanding ambassador for both Red Hat and OpenSource.
“I have had the opportunity to work closely with Andrew at Mesosphere and was immediately impressed. Andrew is passionate, execution oriented, and produces very high quality work. Mesosphere is an incredibly technical product, and as a result, before Andrew stepped in a lot of our product marketing read as release notes. From the beginning, Andrew did a great job bridging the gap between product and marketing to tell a more cohesive and complete story. Additionally, Andrew brings a lot of different skill-sets to the table since he has such a diverse work background. And because he has extensive experience in sales, Andrew can look at messaging and collateral with a critical eye–always thinking about how the AE sells and how we can improve our sales materials to compliment the selling motion. Finally, Andrew has an incredibly work ethic. He lives in Australia and our core team is in the US. Despite the time difference Andrew goes out of his way to be available during HQ work hours–which is something that not many remote folks from across the world do. I highly recommend Andrew!”
“Andrew came on board at D2iQ to help build out our Kubernetes messaging and Go To Market. He almost single handedly changed how we communicate business value for our Kubernetes product lines to customers. Andrew brought a level of customer sympathy and sales knowledge to our product marketing organization that was needed. As our Kubernetes strategy matured, Andrew helped the new executive team and us in Product roll out an entire line of new products under a different company name and branding. The transition, which is not easy given the size of D2iQ (350+ people) went so smoothly the launch date effectively felt like just another work day. Andrew was instrumental in that effort..
