At Perimeter 81 we like to welcome new employees with open arms, and what better way than to speak about their vast accomplishments? As our new VP of Channels Sales, Bob is no exception. He has an impressive professional history and brings a ton of crucial channel experience to the table. Before joining Perimeter 81, Bob was the head of global channel sales at CloudHealth by VMware and prior to that he spent 6 years managing partners and partner programs at Microsoft. At CloudHealth, Bob was the Batman of channel marketing and built a market-leading managed service provider program and community that leveraged the CloudHealth platform to offer differentiated cloud management services. In 2019, he even earned a spot among CRN’s 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs for his work at CloudHealth, and more specifically for his stellar 2019 performance: boosting revenue from partnerships by over 125% and establishing a channels team that doubled in size the previous two consecutive years. Bob’s long and successful career in software solutions sales will bring a go-getter spirit that Perimeter 81 looks for in its employees and takes care to encourage, and we have little doubt that he is up to the challenge of leading our channels sales efforts. We also hope that when he isn’t crushing it for us, that he is having fun with his main hobbies – running, antiquing and catching live music.
“I am truly thrilled to be joining Perimeter 81,” said Mr. Kilbride. “Given the accelerated growth and demand for businesses to securely connect their distributed workforces to their company’s networks, Perimeter 81’s industry-leading platform is uniquely positioned to meet this business challenge. Our partners will play a crucial role in driving positive outcomes at our joint customers, and I’m excited about building a world-class program that will enable them to do so.”
