Pasporte Adds To Skill Set With Top-Level Appointments Wednesday 10 January 2001 PDF Print Pasporte, a pureplay application service provider, has made two important senior additions to its management team as a result of recent rapid success and growth. Peter Gee and Andrew Cloney have taken up new roles at the Surrey-based ASP as the company increases its business operations and ramps up its business partner activity. Peter Gee has become Director of Strategic Alliances, a new position whose remit is to develop Pasporte's channel presence with reseller partnerships, and to nurture Pasporte's suite of software applications. "Pasporte have a strong onus on relationships and as a rapidly growing company, it is imperative that those relationships are strong and lasting," said Gee who joins Pasporte having formerly been Vice President EMEA of Business Development at Avnet CM. "I'm keen to create new alliances with reseller partners and ISVs alike." he added. Andrew Cloney is the new Chief Operating Executive (COE) of Pasporte, and is responsible for the day-to-day running of the company's critical functions. Formerly UK General Manager of Avnet Computer Marketing, Andrew brings a long track record of success in software and hardware distribution with extensive expertise in building products and services and taking them to market via channels. "Pasporte has strong capital funding which places it well in an emerging industry where there are many potential barriers to entry," said Cloney. "My role is to manage our growth as business increases, and help take Pasporte up to the next level." Pasporte's Managing Director and CEO, Gary Woodward, regards both men as valuable assets. "In their previous positions, both Andrew and Peter were responsible for multi-million pound budgets and had a large workforce to manage. It says something for their belief in Pasporte's business proposition that we've been able to bring them on board."
