AppRiver's Balkwell Tapped to Lead European Channel Sales Efforts
AppRiver, a Zix (NASDAQ: ZIXI) company and leading channel-first
provider of security, productivity, and compliance solutions, recently
announced that Paul Balkwell, senior director of channel sales in the
United Kingdom and Ireland, will now lead the company's channel sales
efforts across all of Europe.
Balkwell, who joined AppRiver in 2018, will lead teams that oversee the
rapid expansion of AppRiver's Indirect Cloud Solution Provider (CSP)
Program which will offer Microsoft (News - Alert) Office 365 alongside AppRiver's suite
of world-class cybersecurity solutions that help businesses protect
against security threats and meet compliance standards, such as the
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Balkwell brings more than two decades of leadership experience in
driving technology sales and partner programs. According to Chris Essex,
AppRiver's senior vice president of global sales, he is also a
self-starter with the ability to motivate and inspire individuals and
teams to perform at the next level.
"Paul has a proven reputation for successfully competing in new markets
and driving strong revenue growth. He has helped MSPs in the UK
understand the value of AppRiver's Phenomenal Care and advanced security
solutions while expanding our channel," Essex said. "Paul's deep
understanding of the European market combined with his knowledge of
AppRiver's security and productivity solutions for busines make him the
perfect choice to continue AppRiver's rapid global growth."
Balkwell believes the acquisition of AppRiver by Zix brings together two
very powerful cybersecurity brands that will deliver to partners a
unique value proposition based on providing Office 365 as well as the
proprietary solutions necessary to fully protect their customers.
"I look forward to leading our AppRiver/Zix Channel Sales team in UK and
Europe, bringing new capabilities and solutions to resellers that are
hungry for new revenue streams and more effective ways to keep their
customers safe," Balkwell said.
