In October 2014, we brought managed IT services to Europe with the opening of our European Headquarters office in London, England. We are so delighted to see that in just over one year our office has experienced significant growth! It marks an exciting time for our Continuum team, because as the managed IT services industry continues to expand abroad, so does the success of our UK-based office. Continue reading to learn more about Continuum UK, our awesome new hires and our upcoming UK Partner Day!
Our UK-based team, located in the Thames Valley region of England, was assembled to help support MSPs in the United Kingdom and Europe. However, we never imagined that within just one year, so many MSP partners throughout the region would be leveraging our offerings, globally increasing our support for the managed IT services industry!
“As Continuum continues to experience rapid growth in the managed IT services space in various regions around the world, we look forward to increasing delivery of our services and support throughout Europe and beyond. This office expansion means more success in the future, and it has also allowed us to accommodate double the amount of staff, including our new hires!” ~Mark Connolly, Continuum’s Vice President of Sales~
Oscar Barrientos is our new European Technical Account Manager. In this all-encompassing role, he provides assistance to all partners with product utilization and account management, and also assists the sales team with pre-sales and technical demos. Oscar is originally from London, but a couple of years ago he moved to the green suburbs of Guildford, which he says is “the perfect distance from London to enjoy the open countryside but still be an hour from [the city].”
Oscar is not only a valuable employee, but he also has a very adventurous spirit. His hobbies include scuba and free diving, and by the end of 2016 he hopes to dive in the Maldives to swim alongside the whale sharks and manta rays! He is also an avid news reader, getting his important IT news from his subscriptions to The Times, The Guardian, and other similar publications. His favorite movie is the all-time classic Shawshank Redemption, but he also enjoys any movie starring Johnny Depp or Leonardo DiCaprio.
Anthony Sterling is our new European Sales Account Manager. His role is to help assist in recruiting new channel partners and account managers. To stay updated on all the latest IT news, Anthony prefers checking out CRN and LinkedIn. Anthony is a born and raised Londoner whose hobbies include watching football, and of course cheering on his favorite team, the Tottenham Hotspurs! His favorite movie is Pulp Fiction, yet another classic, and his favorite movie star is Samuel Jackson.
Mark your calendars! February 17, 2016 is our UK Partner Day. At this special event, which is being held at the beautiful Churchill War Rooms, we’ll be meeting with all of our amazing UK partners. Attendees will be treated to an overview of the CompTIA UK State of the Channel report and a keynote address by UK managed services authority, Richard Tubb!
Hope we see you there!
