“Alyson is starting at a time where we have great momentum with large enterprise customers in the region, and we are also bringing our Vibe Roadshow to DFW,” said John Bagnell, Whitlock regional vice president. “This show focuses on innovation and the future of work, and our customers and partners find significant value in participating.” Horn, who will host the Vibe Roadshow in Dallas, reports to Bagnell.

Both of these new strategic hires oversee business development, relationship management, financials, operations, and administration for Whitlock in their respective regions.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with having Alyson and Simon on board,” said Ewan Smith, regional vice president for Whitlock. “Their track records are excellent, and their cultural fit within the company is a perfect match. We are energized by the new talent, and are very confident we will achieve record growth in both markets in 2017.”
