Enterhost Hires Sales Director to Shepherd Business Transition

June 13, 2014

Managed service provider (MSP) Enterhost has announced that it has hired hosting sales veteran Jason Tayar as director of sales. The move is part of the company’s ongoing transition from a Windows-only hosting company to a new focus on providing enterprise-level cloud-based IT solutions and collaboration for businesses of all sizes.

Enterhost has made a pivot to offering a suite of professional services for businesses globally, including consulting and architecting, migration and deployment, and monitoring, in addition to an array of fully-customizable hosting and cloud products.

“Jason is bringing his background of expertise and success to Enterhost to retool our sales engine,” said Kevin Valadez, co-president of Enterhost. “Jason’s deep understanding of the hosting business and his insight into how our products and services can benefit our customers portend a dramatic impact on our company.”

Market drivers for the move include Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync’s growth in unified communications, which means that more and more MSPs are going to retool their models around the suite. For its part, Enterhost specifically has honed in on the capabilities and benefits of Microsoft Lync 2013 Enterprise Voice, making Microsoft’s unified communications suite its flagship product, providing a variety of deployment options including its public cloud platform (Lync Hosting Pack v2, or LHPv2), which Enterhost announced earlier this year.

“We are working closely with Jason as we finalize our product repositioning, offers and packages,” Valdez said. “Our current and prospective customers will appreciate Jason’s expertise and guidance in all matters hosting, particularly when it comes to how hosting and cloud services can reduce overhead and increase productivity.”

Prior to joining Enterhost, Tayar was director of sales for Codero Hosting, based out of Austin, Texas. Previously, he was senior manager of sales development, lead generation and sales operations for (News - Alert), and he held a number of roles for Rackspace Managed hosting both stateside and in the United Kingdom.

Tayar is a graduate of Colorado State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing.
