CLARET, France -- Dec. 9, 2014 -- NETIA today announced that Mathieu Poussin has been appointed to the new role of sales manager for the Middle East and Africa, and that Séverine Olivier will shift into his former position to serve as NETIA's sales manager for Western Europe. With these new appointments, NETIA reinforces both its global sales force and its ability to deliver its software solutions worldwide.
"In his time here at NETIA so far, Mathieu has made the most of his background in both IT and media storage, leveraging this experience to bring our customers the infrastructure and media management solutions their operations demand. We expect Mathieu will continue to excel in his new territory," said Thierry Gandilhon, general manager of NETIA. "Given her success working with our European clients and her impressive technical expertise, we are equally confident that Séverine will transition smoothly into her new position as sales manager for Western Europe."
Poussin joined NETIA in May 2014, having most recently served as a sales engineer for DCI, where he specialized in prospecting and growing major accounts, as well as development and sales of information infrastructure solutions.
