UK Sales Director appointed to spearhead growth at Xalient

14 January 2020, London, UK

Xalient, (, the specialist independent network transformation services provider, is pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Tucker as its UK Sales Director.

The appointment comes hot on the heels of another year of record growth for Xalient in a fast moving marketplace, with new global contracts, managed identity and secure SD-WAN services driving year-on-year growth of over 50%.

Steve has been brought on board to continue driving this expansion with responsibility for strategic sales leadership and further growing and developing the UK sales team, mirroring the recent appointment of Mike Shishman to lead Xalient’s expansion in the US.

Steve joins us from HPE Aruba, where, most recently, he was responsible for leading UK Sales. He brings over 20 years experience in enterprise and channel sales across all areas of IT including cloud, networks, unified communications and outsourcing.

Sherry Vaswani, CEO, commented on the appointment: “We’re really excited to welcome Steve on board. His wealth of experience will be a great asset to the team as we pursue our aggressive growth strategy and continue to expand our presence in the large enterprise marketplace.”

Steve added, “I’ve joined an innovative, disruptive and fast-paced company at an exciting period. Xalient has achieved amazing success in such a short space of time. It's clear that large enterprises have realised the need to have a cloud-ready network infrastructure to help them accelerate their business rather than being constrained by legacy technology. I look forward to working with the team to build on the success to date.”
