Curtiss Singleton and Patrick Herlihy Take on New Leadership Roles to Drive Media Vision’s Growth in 2017
San Francisco, November 28th 2016
Media Vision announces the expansion of its sales department with Curtiss Singleton joining as VP of Sales for The Americas, while a new department focusing on System Solutions and headed by Patrick Herlihy will offer dedicated support to technology consultants. With this strategic approach designed to meet the unique needs and requirements of each user group, Media Vision is structured for growth and expansion in 2017.
“We are gearing up for a new year introducing new technologies and new services, that require us to grow our resources specifically in sales and systems solutions.” says Fardad Zabetian, CEO of Media Vision, “Curtiss Singleton has a proven track record in sales and distribution management in the AV and IT arenas, while Patrick Herlihy is a champion of solution selling with expertise in conferencing; We’ve got the best team in place for success.”
Curtiss Singleton brings over 15 years of executive leadership experience to Media Vision, including previous management roles at Revolabs, ClearOne, Polycom, and Panasonic. As Vice President of Sales for Media Vision, Curtiss will focus on revenue growth in The Americas and competitive market share. He will build upon channel partnerships and strategic alliances while also leading the development and implementation of new channel sales strategies, including growth planning and new markets development for the company.
“I was attracted by Media Vision’s perspective on how collaboration should be offered from the boardroom to the classroom in the future”, says Curtiss Singleton, adding “Media Vision's product portfolio offers multiple capabilities that meet the requirements for a user friendly collaboration eco system, offering a complete solution and eliminating wasted money on technology overlap”.
The second pillar of Media Vision’s restructuring includes the creation of a System Solutions department that will serve the company’s consultant partners on design approach, knowledge sharing, and problem solving. After successfully managing Media Vision's product sales team for the past 3 years, Patrick Herlihy will now lead the new department and act as the primary consultant liaison.
“My goal is to ensure that consultants will benefit from the highest level of support and product expertise” says Patrick Herlihy, Director of System Solutions. To ensure impeccable project delivery and complete client satisfaction, Patrick Herlihy will also dedicate his expertise to assist regional sales managers with large projects, and in-field trainings.
Media Vision’s new approach acknowledges that AV integrators and technology consultants have fundamentally different support expectations from manufacturers. This investment in new resources for the sales and system solutions department marks Media Vision’s dedication to increase customer value as a key driver for business growth.
