Delcam to expand Western US sales team

Delcam has announced the expansion to the Western United States sales team starting in January 2011.

Federico Libertini, will be transitioning from his current role of Support Manager to Direct Sales Engineer. Federico started with Delcam as an Applications Engineer in 2004. Through his incredible work ethic and excellent job working with the vast amount of Delcam customers, he moved quickly into a more prominent role. In addition to his experience in support, Federico’s career has given him an extensive background in machining starting as a CNC machinist in 1998, when he began to program lathes and mills both with manual input and GibbsCAM. Prior to joining Delcam, he attended NTMA training centres in Southern California where he received Basic and Advanced MasterCAM training with solids, surfaces and multi-axis programming.

"I am extremely pleased to welcome Federico to the Delcam Western Sales Team”, commented Christian Briscoe, Delcam’s VP Western Sales. "His experience as a Delcam AE and Support Manager will make him a vital addition to the sales team. His many contacts in the industry and his knowledge of the Delcam products mean that he can make a valuable contribution towards growing our sales right away. I know Fed will bring an immense amount of energy to the sales team and we are ecstatic to have him onboard!”

Also starting in January, John Gale of Gale Force Technology will now officially be joining the Western Sales Team full time as Direct Sales Engineer for Delcam. John will be responsible for FeatureCAM and ArtCAM sales for Northern California and Nevada as well as adding Oregon and Washington. Briscoe added, "John has a long history with Delcam and dedication to our software. He was originally on the advisory council from Bridgeport when we initially began development of FeatureCAM. John also brings with him a tremendous amount of technical and sales experience and we are privileged to have him officially join our team full time and expand his role within Delcam.”

Kevin Smith has also increased his role within the Western Sales Team by adding all of Southern California for FeatureCAM and ArtCAM sales. Kevin has worked very hard to transition into his sales role for Delcam since 2009, after the acquisition of Vizion technology where he worked previously as an Applications Engineer. Prior to making the move to California and joining the world of CAD/CAM, Kevin also worked in the manufacturing industry from 2003 to 2007 in the automotive sector, milling mould components in the Michigan area. "We are really proud of the great strides that Kevin as made in fulfilling his role here at Delcam. We are very confident in his abilities to increase revenue in Southern California and look forward to his continued success,” said Glenn McMinn, President of Delcam North America.

Last but not least, after several years working in the marketing group at Delcam and formerly EGS, Maryann Beaver has joined the Western Sales Team full time as Sales Administrator. "Maryann has been a top performer in Marketing for over 12 years; she has already immersed herself into her new role to assist the Western Team by bringing fresh ideas to help assist the team and our customers. The Western Team is very fortunate to have her working with them, where I know her dedication to Delcam and our customers will be very valuable,” added McMinn.

"Delcam’s market share in CAM software is growing so we needed to strengthen our sales team to handle the increased demand,” explained McMinn. Earlier this year, Delcam announced record six-month sales during the first half of 2010. In addition, industry analysts CIMdata recently confirmed that Delcam had completed ten years as the world’s leading specialist supplier of CAM software and services, and that the company had sold more industrial CAM seats that any other developer during 2009. At this year’s IMTS exhibition, a presentation was made to Delcam’s 10,000th customer in North America, while in October a similar ceremony was held for its 35,000th global customer.
