FirePond has promoted three high-calibre executives – Graham Williams, Joel Radford and Vince Beacom – creating a ‘solid team to seize global operations’ and expand the business.
Graham Williams has been appointed president, and will lead global sales and business development throughout the US, Europe and Asia. He was previously managing director of Europe and Asia, establishing the company’s global infrastructure. Under his leadership, alliances were created with companies like Deutsche Telecom, Fujitsu and Hitachi. Williams will report directly to CEO Klaus Besier.
Joel Radford will report to Besier as vice president of strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions. Radford had previously headed up the business development organization, cultivating high-level partnerships.
Vince Beacom has been promoted to vice president, North American sales, replacing Edwin Lange, who is leaving for personal reasons. Beacom was previously vice president of sales for the manufacturing and transportation business unit.
