About Richard Elmes
A graduate of Christ’s College, Cambridge with an MA in modern & medieval languages and linguistics. Since leaving university, I continually worked for IT hardware and software companies: first as a software salesman with a number of solution providers ending at IBM Retail Store Solutions. It was at IBM that I first adopted a marketing role. Initially, I worked within the channel sales business identifying, recruiting and training new IBM software business partners.
Then I moved into more of a supporting role within the channel, assisting with trade fairs, in-house events and symposia. Travelling frequently and to many different countries I built up a large and professional network of solution providers, equipping them with the collateral, funding and support to increase sales of the IBM’s first Windows-based SurePoS 500 range of point of sale systems.
