Derek Young Appointed Regional Director, Sales and Business Development, New England

It is with a great deal of pleasure and pride that Alliant Technologies recently appointed Derek Young as the Regional Director of Sales and Business Development for the New England region. Young started with the company as an Account Manager in 2007. Since then, he has had a significant impact on the growth for Alliant in Boston and possesses strong industry knowledge as well as exceptional positioning skills. Derek sold the first Cloud Services deal for New England and has developed and will continue to lead the Business Development program for Alliant, which has produced over 120 new logo appointments in six months.

When asked to comment on the organizational change, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Linda McGuigan, said, “At the end of the day, it’s all about strategic talent selection, empowering and equipping our associates to execute. Derek has an intensity for the business that will strengthen our relationships with our customers as well as our partners.” Alliant is confident that Derek’s leadership will set the tone for growth and expansion, not just in the New England region, but for the company overall.
