Tompkins brings over 25 years of experience in software-driven sales models to his role at Workspot, where he will lead day-to-day operations, including accelerating global growth strategies and optimizing the company’s finance, sales and marketing functions.

“I am delighted to join Workspot at such a pivotal time in the company’s growth. Modern VDI is revolutionizing the way we work today, enabling businesses to become more agile, while also reducing end-user computing costs. We’re seeing demand flourish as enterprise organizations seek to modernize outdated VDI solutions, and with Workspot’s most recent NPS score of 80, it’s clear that our customers are thriving.” said Tompkins. “I’m looking forward to collaborating with the team to bring these compelling benefits to more customers across the globe.”

Tompkins’ trajectory in the software industry led him to hold several leadership roles. Most recently he held the position of Chief Revenue Officer at IGEL, where he was responsible for optimizing the company’s revenue generation streams. Tompkins was also Area Manager for Red Hat’s Strategic Sales Team, covering Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. Before his Red Hat tenure, he held sales leadership positions with Hewlett Packard, now Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and Citrix. Tompkins holds an MBA in Business Administration and Management from the University of Virginia, Darden Graduate School of Business Administration and served in the US Navy as a Nuclear Propulsion Technician.

Mike Strohl, CEO & President of e360 stated, “I have worked with Brad for 20 years, since he first joined Citrix as an Individual Contributor in 2003. After six years at Citrix, Brad worked outside the EUC community at HP and Red Hat for several years. I was excited to see him return to EUC in 2017 when he joined IGEL as VP of Sales for Americas, then as Global CRO.  He helped the company transition from hardware to software and rocket through its hyper-growth period. I expect great things from Brad and from Workspot as they evolve into a hybrid/multi-cloud Enterprise VDI solution.”

“Workspot is experiencing rapid growth as the demand for modern VDI solutions accelerates. Amid significant market dynamics, enterprises are rethinking end-user computing as a strategic path to greater productivity and overall growth,” said Amitabh Sinha, CEO of Workspot. “We welcome Brad to Workspot as our new President and COO. The wealth of experience he brings reinforces our deep commitment to innovation and customer success and he will be a valuable asset to our leadership team as we continue to serve our customers and scale our business.”
