  • I have been with HP for 13 years, always in Services - first as a Services Channel Sales rep, then a Channel Services Segment Manager, and now, in WW Technology Services Marketing.

  • Mr_T? Yes, but in name only. No mohawk or gold chains. In real life I'm Jim Turner, a Master Technologist with HP's Integration and Technical Services team. I leverage my 27 years of system, storage, and networking experience to ensure optimal performance with Data Protector and StoreOnce technologies. Many times the source of a problem is not where it appears to be. A broader view of the landscape and a deeper knowledge of system internals are frequently required, and that's precisely what I deliver.
  • MrCollaboration (aka Jim Evans) is an HP Global Services Alliance Manager. He has worked in the IT industry for more than 30 years, 22 of which were spent with Digital Equipment Corporation, Compaq and HP. He works with many third party vendors and partners to develop processes to facilitate excellent support and service for mutual customers. Jim is also HP’s representative to the Technical Support Alliance Network (TSANet).
  • I've been working in Customer Service for over 20 years. During my career I've provided support services for Languages, Programming Libraries and Operating Systems. During the last 10 years I've provide support for Linux and more recently VMware. My current role is as a Technical Account Manager working in the HP Custom Mission Critical Services Industry Standard Operating Systems team. I provide both reactive and proactive operating system support for proLiant servers and blades. Our services in the Custom teams are built on statement of work contracts for large HP customers who need a customized mission critical support offering.
  • I like to listen as much as I like to talk. Why? My 25+ years in the technology industry has taught me that the key to delivering value to customers is to understand what they value in the first place! I developed this passion for customers and consultative selling during my 12 years with Accenture, and I have continued to approach customers in a consultative way during my 12+ year tenure with HP. I also have a passion for HP given my knowledge of our Product and Service Portfolio and the differentiators we possess that position us as a leader in the areas our customers are telling us they want to go. Converged Infrastructure, Converged Cloud, Big Data – and the associated Service and Support implications – all such exciting technology trends where our success will hinge upon our ability to differentiate ourselves versus others in the areas that matter most to our customers. Right up my alley, and I am proud to be part of the great HP team where I know we have the best solutions in the industry!
