Sigma Systems, the premier provider and leader in the design, development and deployment of OSS service management solutions, announced the appointment of Nick Hewitt as Senior Vice President (SVP) of Sales in the EMEA region. Before joining Sigma, Nick was with IBM (formerly Vallent Software Systems).
“Nick is an important addition to Sigma’s senior sales leadership team,” said Alex Salamon, Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Sigma Systems. “His proven success in leading sales teams and initiatives will be of significant value as we continue to multiply our revenues by providing tailored solutions that enable the triple, quad, and all-play services of EMEA’s communications operators. By partnering with Sigma, these leading service providers are able to bring new, value-added services quickly on-board to monetize their networks.”
In his role as head of Sigma’s EMEA sales organization, Nick is responsible for driving business success and building on the company’s current market leadership position.
