NSFOCUS Expands Management Team; Appoints Andre Mello New VP of Latin America Sales

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--NSFOCUS, a global provider of intelligent hybrid security solutions, today announced that Andre Tristao e Mello has joined the company as Vice President of Sales, focused on Latin America. As part of the NSFOCUS management team, Mr. Mello is responsible for overseeing continued sales growth and business development in the region, and has been tasked with growing strategic customer accounts and partner relationships that align with NSFOCUS’ core business objectives.

With more than 16 years of sales leadership expertise in the IT market, Mr. Mello brings a broad range of experience to his new position, including strategic business development and marketing/sales activities focused on introducing new companies and technologies in the Latin America and Caribbean market. He has a strong track record of negotiating partnerships and developing sales channels and distributors/resellers in the region.

“As customer demand for NSFOCUS security solutions intensifies, we continue to build our deep bench of experienced, knowledgeable talent on our management team,” said Allan Thompson, COO of NSFOCUS. “Andre has a proven history selling enterprise security solutions in the LatAm market and delivering results, and we’re excited about his plans for our direct and channel sales efforts. Having him on board will be instrumental as NSFOCUS looks to maximize opportunities in the region and capitalize on our growing customer base.”

Prior to joining NSFOCUS, Mello served in several executive-level sales roles in Brazil’s expansive technology landscape. Most recently, he served as VP of Sales and Marketing at Agility Networks, where he was responsible for sales and marketing departments across the five focus areas of the company – application delivery, security, mobility, datacenter and cloud. Prior to that, he held a seven-year tenure with F5 Networks where he achieved an average growth of 52 percent year-over-year in sales.

“I’m excited to be joining NSFOCUS at such a pivotal time for the security industry, and I am ready to hit the ground running to help accelerate sales growth and increase the company’s presence in Latin America,” said Mello. “As the growing economies in the LatAm region look to revolutionize their business operations, and their business networks become more sophisticated, it’s vital that they focus on maintaining high security standards across the enterprise. This represents huge growth potential for NSFOCUS, and with the company’s expanded commitment to building a presence in the region, I am confident that we will meet our goals for the year ahead and take the company to the next level.”
