Austin, Texas – June 18, 2015 – Pivot3, a pioneer and innovator in the development of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions, today announced the hiring of industry experts Trent Landreth and Jason Peoples to lead the expansion of Pivot3’s Channel Program.
With nearly 45 years of combined sales and business development expertise in the technology industry, Landreth and Peoples will help propel Pivot3’s expanding channel strategy and further position the company as a leader in the HCI segment.
Trent Landreth serves as vice president and directs sales operations and enablement, and channel and business alliances. With extensive experience building and leading large organizations, Trent will focus on driving business goals and objectives, streamlining sales enablement and channel operations and improving internal and external processes. Trent comes with significant senior executive level experience, and has held positions with enterprises such as Oracle, Stonebridge, i2 Technologies, and Formation Systems.

“Hyper-convergence is unquestionably the future of IT infrastructure, and the patented technology that Pivot3 brings to the HCI space proves the company’s viability long-term,” said Peoples. “Pivot3’s solutions are beating the competition in terms of central processing unit (CPU) efficiency, storage efficiency and price, which allows channel partners to deliver an advanced, full-featured, end-to-end system to their customers.
