"We're very excited to be opening another office in the southeast as a part of our progression up the eastern seaboard, and particularly in North Carolina. The state has a vast cross section of large financial, healthcare and manufacturing companies, all of which have growing security needs," said Mark Bennett, area vice president of sales for Accuvant. "Our success in Florida and unbelievable response from clients in Georgia gives us confidence that we can also serve the diverse client base in North Carolina. With awareness and demand for data protection and security solutions on the rise, we continue to be bullish on our expansion plans and believe we're well-positioned to execute on our growth objectives for 2010." Accuvant has recruited Steve Crossman, previously an account manager for Accuvant in the Rocky Mountain region, to open the Raleigh office. Crossman, who will report to Jeff Patton, regional director for Accuvant in the south central U.S., will be joined by David Brown, Accuvant solutions engineer. Over the next several months, the company plans to hire additional positions in the areas of sales and support at this location, which will also serve markets in South Carolina and Virginia.
"Over the past year, Accuvant has established offices in Georgia, Texas, Kansas, Tennessee, Wisconsin and now North Carolina," said Patton.
