Farpointe Data has announced that long time employee Francisco Alcala has been promoted to sales manager North America.
"In his new role, Alcala will be tasked with growing Farpointe Data's North American sales with the goal of achieving the company's aggressive annual sales plan," said Scott Lindley, general manager of Farpointe Data.

Alcala has created a record of success with Farpointe Data. He has demonstrated the ability to win new customers.

He has also proven he can nurture existing partners and successfully launch new products such as Farpointe's mobile access control reader platform CONEKT®.
"I would like to restructure Farpointe’s sales team for greater coverage in the North American market," Alcala said. "My goal is to build upon the excellent support our partners are accustomed to and to position our sales team to expand Farpointe’s reach."
Alcala will be supported in his new role by Tom Piston, regional sales manager East, and Stephen "Shep" Sheppard, sales manager key accounts.
