Andy Macleod appointed as VP Customer Experience EMEAR at Vortex 6

BRACKNELL, UK, 1st September 2023 — Vortex 6, a leading cloud and services solutions provider, announced today that seasoned industry specialist, Andy Macleod, has joined the company as VP Customer Experience EMEAR, further strengthening the leadership team.

Macleod joins Vortex 6 with a great track record of building several successful start-ups.  Previously he spent 25 years inspiring teams and partners to drive change and create long-term business and societal value. A seasoned executive and strong sales leader, Macleod is enthusiastic about genuine innovation and disruptive game-changing technology.  He spent 18 years building business, sales, growth and channel strategies at leading network, cybersecurity and solutions provider, Cisco. Latterly Macleod was Managing Director at F1 Networks, an organisation that provides the services that channel partners need to adapt, evolve, and scale their businesses.

With expertise in the field of simplifying vendor engagement, improving efficiency, removing risk, and increasing income and profitability for businesses, Vortex 6 portfolio of products and services demonstrates tangible ROI for vendors and partners alike.  Last year it launched V6 ProFusion to help businesses better manage their employees’ certifications in one simple, intuitive platform and this new offering fits perfectly into the Vortex 6 portfolio.

Peter Olive, Founder and CEO at Vortex 6, said, “I am delighted that Andy Macleod has joined Vortex 6 and will be leading our EMEAR business and the development of our go-to-market strategy. Andy is a seasoned professional with over 25 years of sales and channel experience.  His wealth of knowledge, especially around growth and go-to-market strategies, alongside his Cisco experience, will further strengthen our portfolio and the support we deliver to our customers.”

“Our mantra is all about “making complex simple” for our partners, but managing vendor incentive programs and improving deal margin is far from easy.  With his sales and channel experience, Andy understands the market challenges better than most and is well-equipped to help us move to the next phase of our development as we bring exciting new offerings to market.”

Andy Macleod, VP Customer Experience EMEAR, adds: “Vortex 6 is at an inflection point and on the tip of substantial growth and success. It is an exciting time to be joining the company as we ramp up to launch new products focused on Cisco Customer Experience (CX), Multi-Vendor Alignment, and Certification Management – which will be a game changer for the large techs whose core asset is their people.   I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to drive continued success and expansion for the business. Watch this space for further announcements.”
