Citrix reorganises sales team
Carlos Sartorius to head Worldwide Sales and Services
Citrix has announced that Carlos Sartorius has been appointed senior vice president, Worldwide Sales and Services, reporting to Citrix president and CEO, Mark Templeton.
Sartorius was formerly managing director and vice president of the Citrix EMEA organisation, headquartered in Switzerland, which he has run since joining Citrix in 2011.
Al Monserrat, a 15-year Citrix veteran, will be leaving the company. He has run sales and services since 2008, during which time he re-engineered the sales.
"I want to recognise the huge contribution and impact Al has had since joining our company 15 years ago," said Mark Templeton. "It has been an honour and a privilege to have had him on our team, and I want to extend my heartfelt thanks and best wishes to him as he takes the next step in his journey."
Sartorius is a senior global executive with deep cross-functional expertise in the technology and telecommunications industries.
Prior to his time at Citrix, Sartorius held a range of senior industry leadership positions, most recently with HP, where he was vice president and general manager of HP's networking business unit in EMEA. Before that, Sartorius served as CEO of Orange Business Services; president for Avaya's EMEA business; and in a number of leadership roles for Motorola, including vice president and general manager of its Government and Enterprise Mobility Solutions business in EMEA.
Templeton added: "Looking forward, we are extremely fortunate to have an executive of Carlos' calibre and experience that is ready and able to step up to this expanded role. Carlos has done a remarkable job getting our EMEA business back on track and has all of the right qualities to lead the ongoing development and growth of our global field organisations."
