OCT 23rd, 2017 VANCOUVER, BC: LinuxMagic is proud to announce the hiring of Himmy Lau as Sales Director for LinuxMagic. LinuxMagic, the makers of industry leading technologies for the ISP, Telco, and Hosting Industries such as MagicMail and MagicSpam is very excited that Himmy Lau will be spearheading the growth initiatives of the companies products, as well as expanding the companies sales forces. This addition to the management team brings an extra high level resource reporting directly to the President/CEO.

Himmy Lau was chosen for this role because of his strong background as a sale leader and his enthusiasm for the companies strategic direction and growth. Himmy will be in charge of developing go-to market strategies for the companies core product lines, as well as strengthening the core sales teams and developing sales channel strategies. Coming from a recent three year engagement with one of Vancouver's premier success stories at BuildDirect as Sales Manager, and with over seven years management experience at Shaw Communications, Himmy Lau understands the opportunities that LinuxMagic products and technologies have for the Cable/Telco/ISP Industries.

President/CEO Michael Peddemors has this to say about Himmy joining the team.. “We might have hired Himmy because of his passion and experience, but it takes a very special type of person to help grow a technology company through various stages of growth, and Himmy's clear understanding of methods, strategies and team building means we have added the right balance of energy and strategy. We are excited to be able to add his management talent to our dynamic team!”

LinuxMagic has spent the last few years growing out it's market share in the North American ISP/Telco space, with their MagicMail Carrier grade email platform, and has reached the stage of being a Top Selling mail platform for the Tier 2 & 3 ISP's and now is expanding it's footprint in the market, as well as targeting the Tier 1 ISP deployments.

As well, LinuxMagic's Spam Protection products are sold and deployed in over 83 countries, and with 40% year over year growth in this division, the company is now focused on even greater expansion.

Himmy also expressed his excitement with this opportunity.. “Working with such a great team, and with industry leading technologies is always fun, and a chance to work with so much talent was part of what got me excited. But to have the chance to make a real impact in both the Telecommunications field, and driving change is a huge opportunity. And being able to bring my experience to a company dedicated to real growth is a great opportunity”

Aside from working in a large telecommunications company in many leadership roles, including Regional Sales Manager, Himmy also understands work life balance, and when he isn't hard at work making change, he's very active in playing competitive basketball, spending time with his friends, family, his puppy and being a foodie in Vancouver. Having the opportunity to work so near his home in downtown Vancouver allows him to have that great life balance.
