Eleanor Walsh joins Aphix as UK Head of Sales
From Start-up to Scale-up with best ever Sales Quarter — Aphix Welcomes Eleanor Walsh as the new Head of Sales
By: Aphix Software
Eleanor catapulted Aphix to their best-ever sales quarter in Q4 of 2019 with fresh input to the sales and marketing team. Her passion for products, partners, growth and all things Irish meant Aphix was a natural fit.
She graduated from Queens University, with a BA (Hons) in Music and Psychology, Eleanor moved to Limerick to work for a Golf & Event Management business. It was here her love affair with Marketing began.
She went back to study for an MA in Marketing Management at Lancaster University and after graduation, she accepted a position with the University Management School Entrepreneurship unit working as part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP).
Through this role, Eleanor entered the world of ERP with Elucid, at that time a company with its ERP designed for multi-channel retail. She progressed to a full-time role with Elucid as their marketing manager.
During her time at Elucid, the business was acquired twice, first to K3 BTG in 2004 and again in 2007 to Sanderson Group Plc and Eleanor moved roles to become an Account Manager.
Missing the exciting world of Startups, in 2010 Eleanor joined Omnica Ltd, a Dynamics AX partner as Sales & Marketing Manager, this is where Eleanor found her love of products and partners!
In 2014 Omnica was acquired by Columbus and Eleanor became Head of Retail Sales for the Dynamics AX business. Missing the products and partner network she was drawn to the excitement of growth and joined Sana Commerce, a dutch based Webstore provider for Microsoft Dynamics and later the SAP channel.
As Sana employee number 1 for the UK & Ireland in late 2014, she spent almost 5 happy years growing the partner network and customer base from the ground up.
Eleanor was attracted to Aphix by the product, the platform and the growth potential of the company. Working with a true SaaS platform, which is still customisable, providing not only e-commerce but also mobile Apps and eProcurement solutions means any business can be digitised with the Aphix Digital Platform.
It was a game-changer as far as Eleanor was concerned. She'd met the team and the fact Aphix is an Irish company (her father was from Co. Mayo and family live there) was the cherry on the top.
We at Aphix couldn't be happier that she's now become an essential part of our team and we've no doubt she will continue to drive growth for Aphix.
