Ross previously served in key sales position with Imagine Communications and Digital Rapids, working directly with major North American media, telecommunications and entertainment providers. As director of sales, Americas for Digital Rapids, he established and managed direct sales, sales support and sales channel teams in the Americas; supported all channel activities in Europe and Asia; and achieved triple-digit growth for nine consecutive years.
