Derby, 24th October 2023 – Node4, the cloud-led digital transformation Managed Services Provider (MSP), announced today that Ashley Butcher has joined the company as Channel Sales Director. Butcher will implement Node4’s new channel strategy and lead a dedicated team charged with delivering an expanded suite of products and services for MSPs, VARs, ISVs, SIs and Carriers.
“My message to the channel is simple,” Butcher comments. “You might think you know Node4 and its channel offering. But lots has changed, particularly as a result of our latest acquisitions. We’ve broadened our experience, knowledge and capabilities — especially as a Microsoft Centre of Excellence and in relation to our own data centre, business intelligence and security offerings. It’s an excellent time to have joined Node4 and the perfect opportunity to become a channel partner.”
With over ten years of experience in the telco and carrier sectors, Butcher’s previous roles included Senior Manager, Strategic Accounts at BT and Senior Account Lead, Carrier and SI, at TalkTalk Business. Both positions helped Butcher develop his already extensive channel knowledge and provided the opportunity to build and maintain strategic C-level relationships with VAR, MSP, ISV and carrier partners.
“I’m delighted to welcome Ashley to the company,” says Iain Shearman, Chief Commercial Officer at Node4. “Throughout his career, Ashley has demonstrated a talent for leadership as well as the necessary drive and determination to deliver on sales and revenue growth. Coupled with his boundless energy and ability to motivate his teams, Ashley is a superb addition to Node4’s channel team and ideally placed to help maximise the potential of our expanded channel offering.”
Butcher concludes: “There’s a sense of excitement about our new channel proposition throughout the company. We have the people, culture and drive to deliver a personalised service to our partners — and to always go that extra mile. The channel market is changing, and it’s a race to build solution-centric propositions, remain relevant and increase enterprise value. Node4’s channel proposition delivers the end-to-end capabilities our partners need to realise this ambition — and I can’t wait to share more details about it!”
