Excelisys, Inc., a database solutions and consulting organization specializing in quality custom database application design, development, and consulting, is pleased to announce the promotion of Rick Middleton to Vice President of Sales. In addition to his new role as VP, Rick will become Excelisys’ fifth partner, joining Christo, Kurt Knippel, Greg Furry and Geoff Ryle.
“It’s been a pleasure working with Rick for the past few years, he has shown a true knack for sales and been a real asset in client relations,” said Kurt Knippel, Vice President of Production. “His dedicated service to the team makes this promotion a win-win for everyone.”
Middleton joined the Excelisys sales team in 2006 as an account/business manager. Before he began securing new business for Excelisys, he served in the United States Marine Corps, where his main duties included security forces, counter terrorism and information technology. After leaving the Marines, Rick ran his own business, installing security cameras for clients ranging from Gander Mountain to 7-Eleven. “In my own company, I was everything: sales, accounting, purchasing, etc. Here at Excelisys, we have a team approach, which works great for me. If one of us needs any help, someone else is there to assist and keep us moving.”
“Rick has been an incredible asset to our team,” said Christo, CEO and Co-Founder of Excelisys. “This isn’t one of those political internal promotions. Rick worked his way up and has earned his current position.”
“Rick knows the value of good communication and following through,” said Geoff Ryle, Co-Founder and President. “With him, nothing ever falls through the cracks. His promotion is indicative of his dedication, because he really gives a damn about his job.”
“Rick is always looking at ways to make the sales process easier for our customers before the sale and throughout the entire project lifecycle with Excelisys,” added Greg Furry, Vice President of Technology.
As Vice President of Sales, Rick will oversee the Excelisys sales team and their international client base. As Excelisys’ fifth partner, he will join the strategic leadership ranks of one of the world’s premier database solutions and consulting organizations.
“Taking over the reigns as VP of Sales and joining the other four partners here is a great honor. These guys are the best. They care about our clients and they care deeply about our developers and sales staff. Without them, we are nothing.”
