Chris Martin

Vice President, Sales

What are your responsibilities at Sakon?
Chris helps to identify strategic partners capable of providing value-add services which seamlessly integrate with our Sakon suite of applications. Working together with select partners, we deliver SaaS solutions powerful enough to support the most complex IT environments.

What did you do before this?
Throughout his 20 year career in telecom, Chris has held several leadership positions with start-ups helping to develop and deliver managed service solutions to enterprise customers. He started his telecom career at Teligent, a pioneer in providing fixed wireless ‘last mile’ solutions. Recently, Chris led the business development efforts at an international telecom network service provider forging joint-venture partnerships with broadband wireless providers in emerging markets.

What do you do when you’re not here?
When he’s not working, Chris enjoys spending time outdoors with friends and family. After college Chris moved to Aspen, Colorado for one ski season which turned into several amazing years where he developed a passion for hiking, mountain climbing, biking and fly fishing in the heart of the Rockies.

Why is this an exciting time to be working at Sakon?
“We are uniquely positioned with the best product in an immature market with no clear leader.  The positive feedback we receive from our customers reinforces my view that we have something special here. Having the opportunity to introduce our solutions to customers for the first time is rewarding and feeds my drive to help Sakon become the market leader.”
