New Vice President, Sales & Marketing – Ian Povey
TAG Hardware has expanded our leadership team to better support continued growth by adding Ian Povey as our new Vice President, Sales & Marketing. Ian will be based in our head office in Surrey, Canada. His first day is Monday, September 23, 2019.
For the past 20 years, Ian has focused on the sales, marketing, and product strategy of technology and manufactured products for organizations of all shapes and sizes – from lean start-ups to multinational Fortune 500 companies. Over that period, Ian launched over 40 products on a global scale, built high performing sales enablement, marketing, and product teams, and managed the execution of global sales and marketing strategies for $300MM+ portfolios.
Prior to joining TAG Hardware, Ian ran an international consulting business focused on helping small- to medium-sized companies with their go-to-market sales strategies and execution, product marketing, defining product direction and preparing their businesses for growth. Before consulting, he held various leadership positions at Avigilon, NetApp, Webtech Wireless, and Teligence.
Ian holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics from the University of Western Ontario and a Master of Business Administration degree from Simon Fraser University.
Ian and his wife Tracy live on a nearby Christmas tree farm with their three children. When he has some spare time, Ian enjoys cycling and skiing, and is attempting to restore a 1968 Land Rover.
