In all my conversations with the various Rimo3 team members, their passion in describing the platform they were building and the opportunity at hand was infectious.

Mike Welling: Eddie, we are very happy to have you join the team. Why Rimo3?
Eddie Powell: I am thrilled to be joining Rimo3 as VP of Global Alliances.

I knew I wanted to be a part of this team.
How does your experience stack up with our business vision and US expansion?
I’ve spent over 25 years in technology sales - from direct selling to building sales teams, to developing and managing indirect sales channels in the US, Latin America, and the Caribbean – with the better part of the last 15 years focused on developing strategic alliances for Fortune 500 companies as well as startups.
My deep sales background has helped me build successful partnerships with technology companies, OEMs, ISVs, and Systems integrators (SIs) that bring real value to both parties and their customers. I spent six years leading VDI ecosystem partnerships at Citrix before heading alliances for AI” startup, CognitiveScale in Austin, and then working in the Financial Services vertical while at Microsoft.
When you are not building partnerships, how do you spend your time?
When I’m not building partnerships, I’m spending time with my family – my wife, Jemima; my son, Piers, and my daughter, Sage – travelling, camping, and boating.
You can also find me at live music shows and music festivals, under normal, non-Covid times, and mentoring entrepreneurs at tech incubator Mass Challenge.
I am delighted to announce the appointment of Eddie Powell as Rimo3’ new VP of Global Alliances to lead the team for our strategic alliance partners worldwide. We’re lucky to have him at Rimo3 and very excited about him joining our ever-expanding team.
