SQL Sentry Grows in the UK and Beyond

The following is an excerpt from Kevin’s full blog post at the SQL Sentry team blog. Read the full post HERE.

It’s with great pleasure that I announce we are hiring TWO new sales engineers to start on Monday, August 10th: John Martin (@sqlservermonkey) and Richard Douglas (@sqlrich). (See Richard’s post HERE).

John Martin

Richard Douglas

John and Richard come to us with impeccable credentials, outstanding technology skills, a long history of community activism and unimpeachable ethics. These gentlemen are among the best of the best.

Their list of achievements and accolades are long (click on their pictures to see their LinkedIn profiles). But here are a handful that come immediately to mind:

– John and Richard are literally masters of SQL Server, with long careers as database administrators.
– Both actively support, from their own time, local user groups in the UK, SQL Saturday events, and large UK-wide events like SQLRelay and SQLBits.
– Both are internationally recognition as speakers at events like SQLBits, SQLCruise, SQLRelay, SQL Rally, and SQL Saturday.
– They both have sterling reputations as talented customer-facing staff at Microsoft and Dell Software, respectively.
– Wicked senses of humor.

John and Richard are the foundation for the dynamic growth we’re experiencing in the UK, Europe and beyond. While our past growth has been explosive, our future global growth is entirely dependent on the quality of our team. We are incredibly excited to have such talent joining SQL Sentry.

Their skills and enthusiasm will make a measurable difference for our customers, our community, and our company every day. And, as we continue to grow around the world, John and Richard will act as our vanguard and flag-bearers, sharing their knowledge at more community events than ever before, connecting more often with our global community than ever before, and driving more value back into our products than ever before.

I am so excited about what the future holds for John and Richard. And I hope you are too. Please join me in welcoming them to the SQL Sentry family! Thanks,
