The former Northern European Sales Manager, Christian Funk, now signs responsible for strategic development of JLT Mobile Computers’ global business.
The expansion of the European sales organization puts JLT in a stronger position to seize upon new business opportunities, to drive international expansion and to fortify the existing network of partners. The continuous development of the JLT Global Sales Partner Program is an important part of JLTs long-term growth strategy; as recently as April, five new partners were added to the international partner network (announced in a press release on April 10, 2017).
Per Holmberg, CEO, JLT Mobile Computers, is seeing a bright future ahead. “By investing in both the sales and development departments we are creating the foundation for future growth.
