New-hires bring diverse experience to bear for Digistor's solutions team
Digistor has expanded its Sydney sales team with the appointments of Olivier Jean as Sales Consultant and Ryan McGoldrick as Sales Representative. Both are familiar with the technologies and processes that creatives need to achieve their goals and will use their experience to assist customers in choosing the best solutions.
Oliver Jean brings with him more than 15 years of sales and technical support experience in the digital media market.
"I then became an Apple FCP Certified Trainer and kept refreshing my certifications"
With a thorough understanding of ad agency, post-production and broadcast client requirements and available creative toolsets, Olivier is looking forward to building on new and existing client relations at Digistor.
As a musician he dived into Apple-based computing and technology then utilised his hands-on experience to work with an Apple reseller and IT systems integration company.
"I had developed an interest in the Media & Entertainment and Broadcast market and soon became involved in building editing systems and RAID storage in the early days of Apple's Final Cut Pro. I then became an Apple FCP Certified Trainer and kept refreshing my certifications.
"Since then I have continually expanded my knowledge as the market has added a wide range of SAN and NAS shared storage options as well as solutions for Adobe, Autodesk and Avid systems."
Ryan McGoldrick is keen to build on his background in digital arts production having graduated from the University of Wollongong with an Honours degree in Creative Arts specialising in video design for live events.
"...it's exciting to be able to take on client's ideas"
He has since worked as a creative consultant with independent theatre and dance groups. This included motion capture and live 3D stereoscopic work at the Motion Lab research facility at Deakin University and the Motion Bank project a collaboration with the renowned Forsythe Company.
"The digital media sector is constantly reinventing itself and it's exciting to be able to take on client's ideas and give them the best tools to succeed. Digistor is well positioned to serve this market and I want to be part of the team to continue the company's growth," said Ryan.
In his sales support role Ryan will take on processing new business leads and assist with the day-to-day business of existing customers. He will also handle software maintenance and licensing as well as hardware warranty opportunities.
