Itential Names Sean Doherty Vice President of Global Sales

Itential continues to build out its executive team and offerings as it pursues an aggressive growth initiative.

Itential operates on the premise that today’s networks must match the agility of the modern computing infrastructure. In his new role, Doherty will help expand this approach to new customers who need programmable, dynamic networks that can be created and optimized in seconds, rather than days or weeks. The company’s software and services are currently used to operate some of the largest networks in the world.

Doherty’s experience with building and leading innovative sales programs spans a successful track record with Red Hat, EnterpriseDB, Progress Software and NGINX. His efforts have driven double-digit growth with multiple organizations.

Before joining Itential, Doherty was head of enterprise sales for NGINX, one of the world’s top web servers, where he established and grew a sales team that in one year doubled revenue, nearly tripled the company’s average deal size and helped deliver dozens of new $1 billion customers.

“The enterprise market as we know it today is under constant pressure to keep up with network demands created by next-generation technology and global growth,” said Doherty. “This environment is creating tremendous opportunities for companies with solutions that can help customers contain costs and respond to demands. The potential for growth here is enormous, and I’m excited about the prospects of taking Itential’s sales to the next level.”

“Itential is thrilled to welcome Sean to the Itential team,” said Itential President and CEO Ian Bresnahan. “Sean is a seasoned sales and business development executive with expertise in leading teams throughout the U.S. and globally. In addition to his wealth of experience, he has a proven track record of attracting, retaining and motivating successful sales professionals that will help us aggressively expand our business around the world.”
