    Meet New Hire Eric Walmer, Who Keeps Our Sales Team Up on the Numbers

    Erik Walmer

    As our new hire Eric Walmer sifts through analytical software and database query applications, we like it when he pops his head out below the cloud so we can give him a thumbs up. With such expert skills as his great ability to communicate in numbers, along with his business-savvy time management sensibilities, we are pleased to share a few more aspects about his life. We put him to the five question inquiry and he even went for the bonus round.

    I was a Business Analyst for EMC which is the market leader in the information storage industry with a revenue of 20 billion dollars in 2011. I supported reporting for Latin America, Federal, Channel and Inside Sales.
