Microsoft Partner Jobs increased at Freedom with Richard Bowes’ appointment as Head of Microsoft Sales

Watford, UK, 27 April 2015 – Communications systems integrator Freedom Communications today announces a new appointment which is key to the further development of its Microsoft practice. The newly-created role reinforces the company’s commitment to its Unified Communications (UC) offering as a differentiated market proposition, with Richard Bowes becoming Director of Alliances. This follows Freedom’s significant investment in the development of UC skills, including its £2 million apprenticeship scheme and a further £1.5 million incremental investment in its key Microsoft aligned resources.

Richard Bowes joins Freedom having previously been Director of Microsoft Solutions at Cisilion, where he developed and managed Microsoft strategy with a focus on UC and Lync. Bowes will be working on Freedom’s new business, sales and marketing, with a particular emphasis on the Microsoft proposition.

“With my knowledge of Microsoft and its UC product Skype for Business, the opportunity to join such an established systems integrator which is leading the way in this area is perfect for me. I’m looking forward to working with the business to continue to develop its Microsoft product offering and help its customers get the most from them.”
