Green Cloud Technologies, a cloud technology solutions provider headquartered in Greenville, has appointed Dan Sterling as president of the company.
Sterling, a former Windstream executive and telecom industry veteran, will oversee and manage the company’s sales, marketing and field support operations. He is charged with developing sales and marketing strategies for Green Cloud’s disaster recovery solutions and furthering the company’s market growth through a network of channel partners.
In the last six months, Green Cloud has opened regional offices in Charleston, Nashville, Tenn., and Tampa, Fla. The company has added 17 executive management and support personnel positions. With the expansion, Green Cloud’s sales were up 70% last quarter over the previous quarter.
Prior to joining Green Cloud, Sterling was vice president of channel sales and channel chief at Windstream, formerly NuVox Communications, where he served for more than 14 years.
“Dan brings great energy and passion to this key leadership position,” Green Cloud Technologies CEO Shay Houser said in a news release. “He has a wealth of leadership experience in the telecom channel and his strategic sales and marketing acumen will have an enormous impact on the company's future.”
In his new role at Green Cloud, Sterling reunites with many former NuVox Communications executives including Charles Houser, Green Cloud’s executive vice president of sales and marketing.
“I am excited about the foundation that Shay and the team have built and the opportunity to work collectively to help Green Cloud’s portfolio of cloud solutions achieve their full potential,” Sterling said in a news release.
Sterling was named Channel Partners magazine’s Channel Executive of the Year in 2009, as well as Channel Executive of the Year Finalist in 2010 and 2011. He is actively involved in the Greenville community and was recently named 2012 United Way Mentor of the Year.
