Evan Kirstel is an extremely creative business development professional who worked on my team during the rapid growth of Acme Packet prior to its sale to Oracle in 2013. He built strong relationships with the global partners he managed that led to success for both the partners and Acme Packet. He possesses the perfect blend of business savvy and technical acumen to build winning partnerships. During his time on my team he identified and became expert in the use of social media for the purpose of building partnerships in the new economy. He has leveraged that expertise into a growing consultancy and I recommend him highly.

Evan worked in my team for more than 4 years, growing AudioCodes largest partner from almost nothing to more than $10M during that time. Evan was very successful not just expanding our business, but also establishing AudioCodes a preferred partner, while building trust and relationships at all levels of that partner. Evan is a very smart sales and business development executive, with deep understanding of technology, market trends, and customer needs, with the ability to translate all that into successful business initiatives that lead to increased revenue and market share. I wholeheartedly recommend Evan. He will make significant contributions to any organization he decides to join.

We worked together @ HSS/FSS, where Evan was handling East Coast sales and I was representing our company's SIP product line. Evan has a good mix of business and technical skills and can stand his own ground in front of customers. I appreciated his no-nonsense approach and enjoyed the time we worked together. Besides being a good corporate citizen, he is also a great guy to hang around with.

Evan has taken social media to the next level. Growing from a few thousand to more than 75,000 and more everyday, Evan has become one of the top social media “influencers” by a number of leading social media publications. He is agile, persistence and responsive by increasing and curating client content to gain and retain followers. His new initiative TweetMeets integrates social media marketing with sales/revenue lead generation driving ROI higher. I would strongly recommend Evan for any business development, revenue and/or social media marketing effort.
