Rob Burrell gets promoted to Sales Director and joins the Board

We’re delighted to share that Rob Burrell has been promoted to Sales Director and he’s also been invited to sit on Axon’s Board of Directors. Having worked for Axon for three years, Rob started his new role during June and he’ll be instrumental in developing the company’s sales function and client base.

In his new role, Rob will be responsible for the strategic leadership of the sales department, and he’ll deliver our commercial strategy alongside the other directors. He’ll also continue to lead our sales team and be a key account manager.

Rob joined Axon as a Sales Manager three years ago and during that time he’s had a big impact on both the sales team and the wider business. He was brought in to take on key accounts and to develop these. Before Rob joined, we’d grown our client base organically, and Rob’s focus has been on building relationships with key customers even further. He started growing the sales function 18 months ago and as the sales team expands, he’s currently recruiting further team members.

Bringing a wealth of experience to his role, Rob has worked in IT for most of his career and has 20 years of IT sales experience. Prior to Axon, he worked for managed service providers and resellers, such as Channel MSP, Claranet and Advanced.

Rob said, “Axon are really agile and gave me autonomy from day one to build the sales department and to adapt our approach. I feel passionate about leading the sales team; I want everyone to embody the role of Microsoft and technology specialists – like technology evangelists. We continue to pull together in one direction as one team – that’s what I love about Axon. If you have ideas on ways to improve our direction, the leadership team will give you the autonomy to make changes happen quickly.
