Talari Networks — innovator of the industry´s most reliable failsafe SD-WAN solutions — has announced the appointment of George Just as Vice President of worldwide Channel Sales for Talari on the heels of the company posting record fourth quarter sales, which grew 86 percent year-over-year, the company said.
Just joined Talari in 2014 as VP of the Central US region where he immediately embarked on developing a channel-centric sales model. As part of Talari´s go-to-market strategy, Just secured Master Agent Avant Communications as a key partner last year, and later partnered with Tier 1 distributor TechData as their only pure-play SD-WAN vendor.
Just has over 30 years of experience in networking as an engineer, sales manager and sales leader. Prior to joining Talari, Just was the director of sales for Alcatel Internetworking where he led multi-tiered sales efforts for their ethernet switch/router business in North America. Just joined Alcatel upon its acquisition of Xylan, a pioneer in the Ethernet Switch and VLAN markets, where he successfully developed a profitable channel and distribution sales division after starting as one of the initial sales professionals hired at the start-up. Prior to Xylan, Just held a variety of sales, management and engineering positions at Proteon, Sprint, Telenet and Fibronics.
