Citrix has named Tom Flink its new vice president of worldwide channel and sales strategy.
Flink will take over for Al Monserrat, who was promoted Friday to senior vice president of sales and services. Flink has 22 years of technology sales experience and had served as the No. 2 channel leader at Citrix behind Monserrat.
Flink takes over at a time when Citrix’s place in the virtualization market faces several questions. Tops among those is how Microsoft’s advances into the market will affect its partnership with Citrix, and where that will leave Citrix’s 8,000 partners.
