Reporting to Senior Director of Sales Bob Buchanan, McGovern is responsible for supporting RapidScale Cloud Solutions Consultants as they continue to expand their influence in their regions with channel partners. Her sales leadership and expertise will play a vital role in developing RapidScale’s national partner program and growing key partnerships with technology distributors and trusted advisors throughout the region. 

“As we’re seeing more telecom partners, IT consultants, and VARS, refocus their business on selling cloud, it’s essential that we have top talent that are knowledgeable in the IT and cloud space,” said RapidScale Director of Sales, West Mark Szotkowski. “Therese is not only exceptionally well versed in the technology, but she understands the needs of enterprise and mid-market customers. Therese’s track record as a top-performing sales leader will not only provide value for our partners but also help them drive more lucrative cloud deals.”

Through her thought leadership, she created results-driven sales campaigns that were implemented nationally and helped generate leads for partners. Additionally, McGovern has been recognized in TierPoint’s President’s Club for her profitable achievements and has exceeded revenue numbers during her time. She was appointed to board of directors executive committee for the Houston Achievement Place, which focuses on the development of the youth through social skills and technology.

“I have been supporting channel partners for over a decade, always ensuring that my partners have the knowledge and go-to-market resources they need to drive more revenue,” said McGovern. “Day-to-day relationships with trusted advisors and technology distributors are key. I look forward to equipping our partners with the tools they need to demonstrate the business-critical benefits of RapidScale’s managed cloud solutions, helping them boost their bottom line.
