Holly Garcia, Vice President
A 22-year channel veteran, Garcia is responsible for overall strategy, growth, and profitability of ATEN's North American business, inclusive of sales, marketing, product management, and channel strategy within its value-based product portfolio. She also leads ATEN’s California and New Jersey campuses.
During her short time at the company, Garcia is already making strides in revamping ATEN’s go-to-market strategy and channel partner program in the U.S. and Canada. She also led the reorganization of the sales team, which included the creation of an inside sales team and redefined partner segmentation.
"I have taken my over 20 years of channel experience, distribution expertise, and partner relationships to work in driving out costs within our channel ecosystem and improving customer experience and ease of doing business. This includes driving toward a 100% channel model with a focus on leveraging distribution for its strengths," said Garcia.
Morgan Milosevich, Marketing Manager
With over eight years of channel marketing experience, Milosevich joined ATEN Technology, Inc. in 2017 to lead marketing and ensure the company is positioned correctly in the marketplace. Previously, Morgan helped grow retail marketing revenue for New Age Electronics, a division of SYNNEX Corporation, to a record high, and while newer to ATEN, the company has already seen growth in sales due to new marketing implementation activities, which includes establishing relationships with customers and customizing marketing plans based on their needs to promote growth.
Milosevich’s team recently led the launch of a survey, calling out partners to better understand their needs and how ATEN could support them more effectively – an instrumental step in helping the company evolve its go-to-market strategy.
"With Holly spearheading the development and integration of ideas for our channel and go-to-market strategies, combined with the improvements being made to our channel marketing strategy, we believe the channel will become our biggest contributor, ultimately helping further ATEN’s market reach and global expansion within the connectivity and management solutions space," said Milosevich.
