U.K.-based sales manager joins software developer’s growing team to head up sales for Europe and India and provide regional support.
LOS ANGELES -- Thinkbox Software has announced the hire of UK-based Sales Manager Ben Minall to its growing team. Minall will provide current and prospective customers in Europe and India with regional support. With a background in CG artistry and software engineering, Minall brings a comprehensive technical understanding of industry practices and workflows, he has also managed sales for both desktop- and cloud-based products.
“The central tenet of Thinkbox’s mission statement is ‘remarkable support,’ and adding Ben to our team extends that vision. Our user base in Europe and India continue to grow, and will benefit from his understanding of pipeline as well as daily tasks that artists need to complete. Ben will help accelerate our momentum, while also reinforcing our dedication to service for our clients and partners,” commented Chris Bond, founder and CEO, Thinkbox Software.
“I’m excited to embrace new challenges at such a dynamic company. The level of engineering support at Thinkbox is fantastic. Their products work right out-of-the-box and they iterate quickly, ensuring clients are able to meet their deadlines. I think some of their developments coming down the pipe will be disruptive and open up a wealth of possibilities for Thinkbox customers,” shared Minall.
Minall comes to Thinkbox from ftrack, where he grew the customer base from three to more than 200 in less than three years. He also spent nearly seven years with The Foundry, first searching for software bugs as a QA engineer and later as a NUKE demo artist. During that time, he co-founded Nukepedia, an in-depth resource for NUKE users still presently in use. Minall transitioned to the company’s sales side in 2010, handling European, South African and Indian territories.
Prior to Minall joining Thinkbox, Director of Sales Thomas Phariss handled European and Indian sales. Phariss now heads up Thinkbox’s sales globally, directly managing the North American, Australian and Asia markets.
