Mark Barber has been promoted to senior vice president, sales of Troxell and sister company Summit Integration Systems.“Since joining Troxell in 2006, Mark has held senior sales roles at Troxell, most recently as vice president western U.S.,” said Mike Ruprich, Troxell CEO. “He has done an exemplary job building and leading our efforts in the west, and he has also been a key contributor in developing and implementing key strategies across the business.

In his new role, Barber now has responsibility for Troxell’s national AE organization, inside sales, bid team, sales training, and Troxell's integration team.

“Troxell has been growing, as is exemplified by both sales as well as our recent move into our new headquarters,” said Barber. “We have a tremendous sales force in place throughout the U.S., and our customers have come to depend on us as being the ‘go-to’ for educational technology products and application services. I look forward to helping continue our growth and working with the great team here at Troxell.”
Robinson comes to Troxell from Panasonic where he was successful in high-level selling in the K12 market, as well as growing technology sales across the education sector.
