David West has joined contact centre solution provider Aspect Communications as senior vice president of international sales for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. He will report to Jim Flatley, Aspect’s president of worldwide sales and services.
West will drive Aspect’s indirect and direct strategies for the region. He brings to Aspect over 20 years experience of creating, directing and executing sales and business development plans in Europe, North America and Africa.
West was most recently the Chief Executive of Web services software company Traxian Inc. Prior to that he was vice president of worldwide enterprise accounts at Tarantella where he doubled the revenue in his first year and established key relationships with global companies including IBM, SUN and EDS. West has also held executive-level positions at Amdahl Corporation including vice president of strategic sales and corporate marketing. In that role he was responsible for driving $420 million in target revenues from strategic accounts. West’s background also includes sales management roles at IBM Corporation and Burroughs Machines Ltd.
“We know David will be a high-impact sales leader here at Aspect,” said Flatley. “In addition to his strong EMEA experience, he has a successful track record of building solution-oriented sales and business development teams that consistently drive revenue and achieve goals. We anticipate that he’ll contribute greatly to the development and implementation of strategy that will strengthen our EMEA business.”
“I’m looking forward to helping form and execute the strategy for Aspect’s EMEA business,” said West. “Aspect has a compelling vision and a strong offering for its customers. I’m excited about leading Aspect’s EMEA team in building strong relationships with channel partners and customers, while streamlining the sales cycle and reducing time to closure. There are many great opportunities in the region that I look forward to developing into fruitful results for Aspect.”
