PlanetMagpie’s president Robert Douglas met Martin Metzler at multiple business networking events in Texas earlier this year. Martin’s energy and customer-centric approach impressed Robert, so much so that he asked Martin to come on board as PlanetMagpie’s Director of Sales!
Before joining PlanetMagpie, Martin worked as President of Consociate Partners, a strategic consulting firm based in Lewisville. There he performed business development and client management for Texas businesses, including several technology companies based in the DFW, Texas. Martin contributes frequently to the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber, by sitting on two of its committees.
As Director of IT Solution Sales, Martin will lead all sales efforts with a focus on the Texas territory: evaluating customer segments, building sales funnels, and developing long-term customer relationships. Given the growth in the DFW area and the need for high-level IT expertise, Robert hopes and expects to grow quickly into a top Texas MSP. Martin's 20 years of experience in sales & consulting will go a long way toward reaching that goal.
Martin received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from the University of Cooperative Education in Ravensburg, Germany. His subsequent experience in the business development, management, and consulting fields will make him an excellent Sales Director.
Martin loves all the dogployees at PlanetMagpie and was happy to meet one of his own breed—a German Shepherd named Layla who guards the Silicon Valley datacenter.
Welcome to the PlanetMagpie Pack, Martin!
