Edge Solutions, a leading services and solutions provider in the southeast, announced today that Brent Holt has been named Technical Sales Executive. Holt joins the organization with 18+ years of technology experience in both sales and technical roles.
“We are pleased to welcome Brent to the Edge Solutions team,” said David Able, COO and managing partner. “Brent is passionate about technology and its ability to transform any business. With the addition of Brent, we are bringing a new type of sales executive to the table; one who is able to have both in-depth technology and business discussions. By bridging the gap between these types of conversations, we are strengthening our ability to provide complex services to our customers.”
Holt joins Edge Solutions from HyTrust, where he worked as a Principal Systems Engineer. Prior to his work at there, Holt spent seven years at VMware working with customers across the southeast; eventually working with enterprise customers, helping them modernize their infrastructure and defining strategic transformational plans. His IT career began with Mindspring, Inc., taking dial-up internet support calls – his most difficult, but notably favorite job – then moved into information security with Internet Security Systems (later acquired by IBM) in a variety of support, management and pre-sales roles.
“I am excited to join the team at Edge Solutions,” said Holt. “In my career, I have worked with many customers struggling with the next steps, whether it’s adding legacy system support/migration, or going to a zero-touch data center in the cloud; the choices can be overwhelming. At Edge Solutions, we want to help break down the complexity and provide a fresh perspective on how customers can move the needle. It is the right time and place for this type of technology partner model.”
Holt is a native of Decatur, Georgia, where he is active in community non-profits, including the Wylde Center and the Decatur Education Foundation. He remains in Decatur today with his three daughters and wife, Jennifer.
