BSG recruited Andrew Beresford to join the senior vice president and general manager of Saleslogix business unit Lorcan Malone as a member of the executive leadership team.
Weitzel brings deep global experience in driving strategic partner success in enterprise software with twelve years in senior executive partnership roles at SAP. While at SAP, he started, built, and managed the global strategic partner portfolio for over six years and generated a significant recurring revenue stream for the company. Weitzel has in-depth knowledge and solution expertise across a wide-range of industry verticals and horizontal solutions, gained from previous positions at Deloitte Consulting, KPMG Peat Marwick, and a Hong Kong based e-commerce start-up.
He joins Swiftpage as the company is planning to detail its new partnership strategy and product roadmap for 2014 and beyond. As Swiftpage exclusively relies on channel partners to grow its business as a CRM leader in the mid-market, Weitzel will drive the Swiftpage partnership vision with a focus on creating vertically-focused and OEM partnerships while scaling the broader partner ecosystem with enhanced collaboration and an attractive product roadmap.
"I am excited to be joining Swiftpage, a high growth company with a phenomenal CRM portfolio that has already built a thriving channel ecosystem,” said Weitzel. “As the company continues to expand market opportunities, particularly in vertical market segments and with its aggressive mobile CRM focus, I look forward to engaging with partners to uncover new strategic opportunities and accelerate customer success.”

John Oechsle, Swiftpage president and CEO. “As our reseller network continues to expand, we are seeing terrific opportunities to diversify into new vertical markets, with Saleslogix as the premier platform for vertically tailored CRM solutions.
