Qstream, makers of a mobile sales capabilities platform for igniting high-performance teams, today announced the opening of new sales headquarters for the EMEA region in Maidenhead, UK.
With international bookings up 200%+ in 1H 2016, the company’s expanded presence in the region will facilitate continued growth worldwide. Joining a number of established tech companies and start-ups in England’s Silicon Corridor, the new office follows the expansion of the company’s thriving Dublin facility late last year – more than tripling employee headcount in EMEA and solidifying Qstream’s position as one of the fastest-growing SaaS companies in mobile sales performance.
Also announced today, is the appointment of tech industry veteran, Patrick Gunn, as vice president and general manager of EMEA region sales, reporting to Joe Gruttadauria, senior vice president of worldwide sales. Gunn has led enterprise software sales for some of the world’s largest companies, including HP, IBM Tivoli and Sun Microsystems, and was instrumental in the creation of strong EMEA businesses for software companies such as Novadigm, Prolin and Altiris. Prior to joining Qstream, he was vice president of EMEA sales for iQuate, where he drove triple-digit growth. In his role at Qstream, Gunn is responsible for the expansion of the company’s enterprise sales force and the development of Qstream’s SaaS business outside of North America.
