ACOM Sales Veteran David Adams to Manage VAR Partner Training and Support in Expanded Channel Program
September 30, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsLONG BEACH, California, September 30, 2008 – David Adams, a senior ACOM sales manager most recently in charge of customer base sales, has been appointed to the new position of sales training and support manager in the company's new channel sales initiative, it was announced today by Senior Vice President James R. Scott.
A leading developer and marketer of integrated payment and document management solutions, ACOM launched its new channels program earlier this year with the objective of signing up to 40 new channel partners within the first year and a three-year goal of 200, Scott said, noting that interest in the program has been high among the channel sectors being targeted by the company.
"This is an ambitious but fully achievable goal," he said. "David is one of our most senior sales managers and his depth of experience across our product lines and across the spectrum of business equips him admirably to provide the quality sales training and support that will assure that our channel partners find success in our relationships. He will work side-by-side with each partner in the early stages of the relationship, and as they become comfortable with the products and processes and increasingly enthusiastic about the opportunities, he will draw back to provide additional support as needed."
Adams joined ACOM in 1990 as an account executive selling the company's solutions for laser printing checks and business documents following a one-year stint as a research analyst on Department of Defense projects at Computer Sciences Corporation. Four years later, he opened ACOM's first remote sales office, also managing the development of a remote sales office network. With the company's continuing growth and expansion into all dimensions of electronic corporate document management – payments, business documents, B2B trading partner solutions, content management and electronic document distribution – his focus turned to promoting and selling the full product line into the broad customer base.
"The new position is exciting for me," Adams said. "It represents an opportunity to apply the experience and knowledge I've gained with our existing customers and our growing suite of products in a new way. I see it as a personal growth opportunity to be shared with a community of diverse and interesting channel partners."
A native of the San Diego, California area, Adams attended high school there and graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a B.S. degree in business information systems. A devoted aviator, he has accrued hundreds of hours flying Civil Air Patrol search and service missions.
