As a seasoned consultative seller, Bryan Samson is a Strategic Alliances Executive at Mainline Information Systems working to improve relations between suppliers and Account Executives. He has nearly 17 years’ experience working with technology solutions, most of that time at IBM in the storage business. Due to the wide and diverse range of products, storage can be the most complex to sell and architect.

He now works exclusively with PureStorage and EMC to grow Mainline’s business with those suppliers. He helps clients and account executives by leading technology discussions to weed through the landscape of products and select the right solution.
