Self-service solutions provider has promoted Buck Warren from SVP of Sales to President
Aberdeen, N.C. – May 29, 2015 – Self-service solution provider Meridian named Richard “Buck” Warren as President of the company. Warren has served as Senior Vice President of Sales since September of last year and will now oversee all Meridian operations and continue to head the sales and marketing teams.
“When you are growing, it becomes imperative to establish strong central leadership,” says Meridian CEO Chris Gilder. “We are excited about the current direction of Meridian with Buck at the helm; we have the right mix of leadership and talent to have a strong year and a bright future.”
Since joining Meridian last year, Warren has played an integral role in strengthening the sales department on many fronts, according to Gilder. “Buck has firmed up our sales training process and greatly improved our team’s strategy and skill set; he has created a proactive culture,” says Gilder. “He continues to grow our strategic partnerships – we are already seeing the fruits of his efforts and I am certain this is just the beginning.”
Warren came to Meridian by way of CA Technologies (formerly Computer Associates), where he held numerous senior leadership positions, most recently serving as the Vice President of North American Sales for CA’s Application Delivery Division. Warren was responsible for all customer-facing sales operations. While at CA in May 2011, Warren was awarded Global Sales Leader of the Year and in April 2012, he was recognized as South Sales Leader of the Decade.
“We have the right pieces of a great team in place,” says Warren. “I am honored to be given the opportunity to lead Meridian moving forward.
