Proximity adds sales director to boost Avaya team

Nortel-Avaya partner has named ex-Datapulse man Stuart Legg to the role of sales and marketing director replacing Jane Emerson, who has left for Avaya and ShoreTel partner Nuage.

Proximity has sold Nortel kit for well over a decade and was one of many partners absorbed into the Avaya channel following its acquisition of the Nortel enterprise business in 2009.

However, following a lengthy integration process Avaya last autumn took the step of apologising to partners for failing to monetise the Nortel lines as effectively as they had wanted.

In addition to bringing substantial Nortel expertise, the addition of Legg will "enable us to look at new markets, both in terms of sector and location," said Proximity CEO Darren Boyce.

He added: "He has considerable Avaya knowledge that will ultimately benefit our customers, as well as our key channel partner relationships."
