Beacon’s Sales Team: Active & Driving Business

Est. Reading Time: 2 minutes

With Beacon’s customer base spanning the U.S into 40+ states, into 30+ universities and now, into the Virgin Islands and the U.K., credit must go to Beacon’s Sales Team.

Rick Boccard, Beacon’s Director of Sales, joined the company a couple of years ago after working as a territory sales executive for Bronto Software. He has quietly and effectively changed the direction in establishing new sales and marketing tactics within Beacon under his leadership. Of course, there’s a great technical team assembled behind the front line that delivers quality products and services. The growth in sales has not only been cause to hire new development and digital marketing employees, but also for expansion into additional office space.

Three (3) new members were added to the Sales team recently…

  • Justin Terrell: Account Manager

  • Ryan Bowles: Account Executive (starts June 1).
