NexTech AR Solutions Corp (CSE:NTAR) (OTCQB:NEXCF) announced Thursday that it has hired a trio of new senior vice presidents of sales due to growing demand for its InfernoAR video conferencing and virtual events platform.
The new hires bring NexTech’s sales team to nine members, each of which has a monthly sales quota of $100,000, the company said.
“I’m gratified to be able to attract top-flight talent and to see our sales force grow at this rapid pace as we are experiencing a rapid increase in demand for our services globally,” NexTech CEO Evan Gappelberg said in a statement. “We now have two salespeople in Europe and seven in North America with the expectation that we will be hiring additional sales reps to meet the rapidly growing demand for our platforms.”
The InfernoAR platform is capable of hosting large-scale events of up to 1 million people with virtual lobbies, live presentations and custom holographic product displays, the company said.
“I believe that with our InfernoAR platform, NexTech has the opportunity to take the lead market position in video conferencing and virtual events by integrating two very exciting and in demand technologies, video and AR, into one secure and scalable platform,” Gappelberg added.
One of the new faces is Andrew Crow, who previously worked for the firm PopResearch where he won the firm’s President’s Cup Sales Award three years in a row.
“I decided to join NexTech because of fantastic, accomplished and bright leadership alongside what some can argue to be unequivocally the top products and product roadmap in the AR space,” Crow said. “Not only did I see the opportunity to join a tremendous company with a great culture, I also see great potential for extraordinary growth in an emerging market that appears to be undervalued and still widely unknown in the marketplace.”
Mike Curridor is another of the new sales team. He previously served as director of enterprise sales at Leonardo Worldwide Corporation, a travel-focused marketing and advertising firm.
“I am beyond excited to be joining the NexTech team,” Curridor said. “I am extremely grateful to be joining a company that is on the forefront of boundary-pushing technology in augmented reality, and ideally situated for continued exponential growth."
James Barnett, the executive director of Ryerson University, joins NexTech as a consultant for edtech and telemedicine sales.
“I am very excited to be joining NexTech AR,” Barnett said. “The company has evolved at the right place and the right time. I look forward to the opportunity to further develop and implement cutting edge technologies in both Telemedicine and Augmented Learning in NexTech.”
