NXTV Quadriga is pleased to announce the addition of some highly regarded industry veterans, with over 50 years of combined hospitality experience, to its sales management team. Under the guidance of Charles Siemonsma, Chief Sales Officer, the company intends to offer and deliver expert customer service and product knowledge to our new and existing customers. This consultative sales approach will provide an advantage in an era of increasingly complex business models and technology solutions.
“With a new sales management team in place, NXTV Quadriga is poised to deliver on its promise of ‘unifying the guest experience’ by bringing an unmatched level of integration for television, personal computer and mobile devices to the hospitality market. This integrated approach will bring together a multitude of applications, covering multiple devices, including the introduction of SmartTV and a seamless unification of all visual appliances. We are thrilled to introduce this exciting product mix to both our new and existing customers,” says Charles Siemonsma.
Most recently, NXTV Quadriga welcomed Jimmy Matthew, Vice President, Sales. Jimmy will lead sales for a group of national accounts as well as oversee the East/Southeast Region. He was most recently vice president of North American sales for Square-i International in London. Prior to that, he was regional sales manager for LodgeNet Interactive Corporation where, for nearly 20 years, Jimmy led the national contracts group for hospitality and broadband services.
Michael Bevan has joined NXTV Quadriga as the Director of Sales for the South/South Central/Southwest Region. Michael has held executive and management positions in virtually every aspect of in-room technology through his tenure with LodgeNet Interactive Corporation (interactive television), Sony Electronics (HD Televisions), Guestroom Solutions (logistics and integration), Nortel Networks, Sprint (telecommunications), and MobileStar Networks (HSIA and wireless).
Covering the North Central/West Region is Rob Johnston, Director of Sales. Rob was previously regional sales manager at Guest-Tek where he successfully sold in-room technology solutions including IPTV (both VOD and FTG) and HSIA to ownership groups and independent hotels.
The addition of Jimmy Matthew, Michael Bevan and Rob Johnston ensures that NXTV Quadriga will be able to support its entire customer base with experienced industry leaders. The outside sales team will be supported by Jeff Smith, Inside Sales Manager, in a newly created position. Jeff hails from Marcus & Millichap where he was an investment sales broker. He was previously sales manager at Castile and Associates for 10 years where he led investment account sales, asset inspection and valuation.
