Goldman becomes VP sales at APC

Leading global provider of high availability systems, the American Power Conversion (APC) has announced the appointment of Tom Goldman as vice president, global sales. He replaces Mr. Ed Bednarcik who left APC to pursue other opportunities.

Mr. Goldman until recently was the president and chief executive officer of NetBotz, Incorporated, which APC acquired in October last year.

As vice president, global sales, he is expected to take charge for overseeing APC’s global sales teams addressing enterprise, mid-market and retail customers.

Making this announcement, APC President and chief executive, Mr. Rodger B. Dowdell, Jr, said, the company has made tremendous strides in recent times.

“APC has made tremendous strides expanding beyond our traditional markets into the approximately $7 billion Network-Critical Physical Infrastructure (NCPI) market for data centers.”

He also said that APC has been very successful in growing its businesses, expressing confident that with Mr. Golden’s leadership, the firm would continue to climb the ladder and expand its market present across the globe.

Mr. Goldman’s career spanned several senior executive level positions in sales and operations within the Information Technology (IT) field.

Prior to joining NetBotz, he had served as president and chief operating officer of enterprise software company Apogee Networks, where he grew and led the company to become the global leader in its market.

Before then, he was vice president of sales at systems integrator Xerox Connect and prior to his career in IT industry, Mr. Goldman served as a fighter pilot in the United States Air Force.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Southern Florida and a master’s degree in business administration from Golden State University.

“I am very excited to be taking on this challenge at APC. It is obvious that APC sets it standards for customer satisfaction extremely high and has ambitious goals for expanding its traditional consumer, mid-market, and enterprise business worldwide. I look forward to applying my in-depth knowledge of data center customers and their NCPI solution needs toward accomplishing these objectives,” he said.
