RapidScale, a Cox Business Company, Announces a New Cloud Solutions Consultant for the Northeast Region

A seasoned cloud sales expert, Mike De Haan joins Rapidscale as a new cloud solutions consultant supporting agents in upstate New York, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and the Northeast region.

RapidScale, a Cox Business company, welcomes Mike De Haan as a cloud solutions consultant for the Northeast region. Reporting to Sales Director, East Andrew Laughter, he will be responsible for enabling channel partners in the Northeast area and their ongoing growth and development in the region.

“RapidScale’s reputation for application delivery, industry-leading customer satisfaction score, and quality partner enablement are some of the reasons why my previous company chose to work with them for managed cloud services. Now, I’m excited to be sitting on the other side of the table,” said De Haan. “I think my ability to truly understand my partners’ sales processes and needs combined with the resources and knowledge from RapidScale will be instrumental in developing a successful cloud business for my partners.”

He began his technology career working at carrier companies like Sprint Nextel and Verizon Wireless and then moved to Comcast as an outbound business representative. He also was involved in a SaaS startup that offered digital marketing on the Google platform.

“I’m excited to have a technical and experienced cloud sales expert on our team to support agents in the Northeast,” said Laughter. “His background, skillsets, and ability to directly connect with agents will give him an edge in creating more long-term partner relationships in the region.”
