Paula Johnston is to lead Node4's public sector push as the firm bids to become a 'major contender'. She brings 10 years experience and joins from Virgin Media where she managed the Public Sector Team across the midlands and south regions, and was named top sales performer in 2015.
As Node4's Head of Public Sector Sales Johnston will also draw on her previous experience as public sector Account Director at Airwave, where she won significant contracts to supply the Bluelight Sector with comms solutions including encrypted connectivity and UC.
Paul Bryce, Business Development Director, Node4, said: "This is an important hire as we work to position Node4 as a true end-to-end IT supplier for mid-tier, charity organisations and the public sector.
"Paula brings valuable experience in the sector, and we expect her to play a key strategic role in helping us achieve our growth plans."
Johnston added: "Now that Node4 is fully HSCN compliant and a G-Cloud 9 supplier, my priority is to build on our experience in this sector to ensure that Node4 is established as a major contender."
