Professional services automation platform provider ConnectWise is showing just how serious it is about its international expansion. The company today announced that co-founder David Bellini, who has served as chief operating officer will head up all international operations and be based out of the company’s new London office.
“After 30 years of owning and running my own managed services business, I look forward to promoting the growth of the UK ConnectWise partner community,” Bellini said in a statement. “Supporting our partners is a top priority for our company, and I am very excited to help continue the growth of our community in Europe.”
ConnectWise’s CEO Arnie Bellini told me about the UK and other international expansion plans during IT Nation in November, calling the new London office a beachhead to the rest of Europe. Other offices were in the works in Sydney and elsewhere.
The plan is to take ConnectWise’s PSA platform and the other components of its Modern Office suite – LabTech, Quosal and ScreenConnect – to MSPs in the UK and beyond. ConnectWise said that David Bellini will join the current UK team to build out the company’s international operations from the new 5,000 square foot office.
Bellini will also be on hand to host the company’s ConnectWise Uswer Group meeting in London later this summer, on August 19. More information about the event is available here.
ConnectWise also announced the promotion of Gregg Lalle, formerly Channel and International Sales Director, to Vice President of International Sales. ConnectWise said that Gregg has worked at the company for five years. During that time he’s headed up strategy and execution into markets outside the United States and has played an integral role in establishing distribution channels in markets such as Sweden, Germany, UK, Portugal, Spain, India and Australia.
