John Pepper, managing director of Minx, said: “Cooper has been working hard on cementing the Minx and Cisco relationship and is a key member of our management team. His appointment as sales and marketing director is a natural step forward for Minx at this time.”
Cooper told CRN: “We have spent two months putting together our overall business plan. We hope to do £28m of Cisco business in the UK in 2006 and grow this to £60m over the next three years.
“We are a focused Cisco integrator and we are winning business over more generalist players.”
Keith Humphreys, managing consultant at research house EuroLAN, said: “Minx must be one of the fastest-growing Cisco partners. It has gone from SMB Select Partner to the top layer of Cisco accreditation in a short space of time, but it has not left the SME market as it has moved up.”
