McCormack's initial priorities are to continue to build brand awareness and demand for ShoreTel's product and solution sets, and to further develop ShoreTel partners' sales and marketing capabilities in the APAC region.
"ShoreTel has a 100 per cent channel strategy, so it is absolutely critical that our sales and marketing efforts are focused on delivering outcomes for our partners. Emma's capabilities in enabling partners and providing the level of support required for their sales teams are second to none. With more than 15 years' experience in marketing roles for IT vendors, including the past nine specialising in telecommunications and contact centres, she has developed a deep understanding of the channel and what our partners need," continued Downing.
"I am looking forward to working closely with ShoreTel's distribution and reseller partners as well as the strong customer base we have across the region," said McCormack.
