D-Link Executive Michael Fox Promoted to Associate Vice President to Lead Newly Consolidated Eastern Region Field Team

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2009) - D-Link, the end-to-end computer networking solutions provider for consumer and business, today announced that Michael Fox has been promoted to associate vice president, and will lead the company's newly formed Eastern Region sales team, expanding his responsibility to 32 states across the North Central, Ohio Valley, Northeast, Mid Atlantic, and Southeast territories. Fox formerly held the position of senior director of US field sales, Eastern Region.

The consolidation of field operations improves D-Link's ability to bring additional resources -- such as support, training, engineers and field staff -- to the region and interact more closely with its Value-Added Resellers (VARs) and end-user customers.

Fox will focus on driving revenue in the eastern US territory, managing activities of the sales team, creating and developing new channels of opportunity for D-Link® products, and serving as a key executive for clients and partners. He will also create specific account and market penetration sales plans, develop strategic programs designed to maximize partner opportunities and maintain pipeline and revenue forecast reports.

"Michael has had an impressive track record with D-Link. He has closed competitive multi-million dollar deals, held top region quotas and maintained an impressive number of active VARs," said Nick Tidd, vice president of sales of D-Link Pan America and vice president of marketing for D-Link North America. "He demonstrates the strategic and leadership skills necessary to develop new channels for D-Link as we expand our sales channel concentration throughout the Eastern Region."

Based in St. Petersburg, Fla., Fox joined D-Link in 2006, where he held positions of director and then senior director of US field sales. His team has consistently surpassed quotas for the past three and a half years. Under his leadership, new business deals were closed with major customers.
