James Cunial, Oracle Practice Lead
When NEXTGEN won the Oracle Excellence Award for Specialised Partner of the Year – Global in VAD Cloud at Oracle OpenWorld in October, James Cunial was credited with playing a key role. According to his colleagues, it was his “patience, clarity and logic”, along with some serious expertise around Oracle, its products and solutions, that contributed to expanding NEXTGEN’s Oracle cloud revenues by 140 percent in FY17.
A down-to-earth guy who started out in technical sales support, before moving to presales and then his current role, James has been nominated several times by NEXTGEN for an ARN Award for Technical Excellence for his contribution.
John Pritchard Business Manager, Microfocus & HPE
This is a tale of two tempting career paths pointing in different directions. One was smooth and well signposted; the other clouded in mist. John Pritchard had amassed an impressive CV with skills and experience backed by achievements in sales, alliance/channel partner business development, management consulting, project management, and product delivery.
Fate then handed him two offers at the same time – one with a large US vendor; the other with NEXTGEN. Suddenly he was faced with an intriguing career decision and a tough call to decide which fork in the road to follow.
James Walters Business Manager, Data Management & Infrastructure portfolio
James Walters believes in the ability for technology to translate to achieving real business outcomes. He’s committed to the success of the channel community and embraces the opportunity to foster growth. And he wants to use NEXTGEN as a platform to attract new talent into the IT industry for the long term. But the industry almost lost him to the United States...
James Walters journey in the IT industry began at Kaz Computing with Peter Kazacos. He worked through various marketing and financial roles in Kazakos’ companies, including as an investment analyst for Kaz Capital, an early stage venture capital fund that invested in startup IT companies. This wasn’t his ideal career path, and opened the door to NEXTGEN.
