Alex Bogaerts

CEO, TrustAlert. President, ISS EMEA. SVP EMEA, Internet Security Systems (IBM/ISS)

Alex-Round“IBM/Internet Security Systems (ISS) is a world leader in the high-end protection technology for corporate networks. When ISS decided that investments in the emerging markets on Europe’s eastern side would be preferable, we looked for a manager that combined local field know how, a broad self-reliance, a can-do attitude and a track record. Xantopia came through these challenges with flying colours. While expanding the relationship with key partners in Moscow and Budapest, they quickly established new partnerships in the Baltics and the Balkans. Before finishing the second year, Greece & Turkey as well as South Africa were added to their responsibilities. By and large, sales in the region had tripled. This was the result of a focused, well-trained and reliable partner network as well as from personal involvement in key large accounts.”

Assignment: Regional Director Emerging Markets EMEA — Channel and Sales Management in CEE, Russia, Med, Africa.
