Lewisville, Texas—June 5, 2017: Today, Cima Solutions Group announced the newest member of their team, Kevin Snodgrass. Kevin, a Navy Veteran joins Cima as Account Executive in North Texas.
Prior to joining Cima, Kevin graduated from the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland where he majored in Economics and General Engineering. After serving 6 ½ years on active duty aboard various US Navy warships, Kevin joined DeGolyer and MacNaughton in 2013. At D&M, Kevin served as an Economist, appraising oil fields and reservoirs all across the globe, but focusing primarily on European and African assets for major, integrated oil companies.
“At Cima, we’re constantly investing in key personnel to continually deliver reliable, efficient IT solutions to our clients,” says John Alday, CEO of Cima Solutions Group. “Kevin’s professional and military experience and the training he was provided at Tech Qualled will prove to be a great addition to our already strong team. We’re thrilled to have this Navy Veteran as part of the Cima family.”
Kevin made the switch to high tech sales after learning that a fellow Naval Academy graduate, Justin Ossola, had co-founded Tech Qualled which trains military veterans for careers in high tech sales. Tech Qualled, through its 9-week training program called the Launchpad Academy, also helps candidates secure job offers upon graduating from the program at top IT companies like Cima.
“For veterans without prior sales or industry engineering experience, Tech Qualled is the only way to break into high tech sales,” said Ossola. “You get a solid foundation of networking fundamentals, solutions, and industry trends to kick start your learning process.”
“The Tech Qualled organization is first-class. Their model leverages our experience as military officers, in technical leadership roles, to develop the key skills necessary to confidently sit across from business leaders and sell.” said Snodgrass. “ The entire program, which draws its true strength from the founders and the simply amazing team of professionals they have assembled, has left me well-prepared and eager to make an impact in a B2B sales role.”
Kevin and his wife Amanda have been married for 10 years and currently live in Flower Mound, Texas with their two young sons.
