In his role, Johannessen will be in charge of all strategic alliances, technology alliance, and building and managing the overall partner program.
He will work to refine and execute a global alliance and channels strategy that will focus on the development of partnerships with major global IT companies to accelerate adoption of hybrid ITSM.
“Johannessen brings to FrontRange a unique blend of IT service management experience and the knowledge of how to apply this in building a global network of loyal and productive business relationships,” FrontRange president and CEO, Jon Temple, said.
