Patrick Smith, Vice President of Sales at ASG, explains, “The new employees are part of our long-term plan to increase our presence in the Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana (TOLA) regions. As they say in Texas, it’s ‘Go big or go home.’ Dallas was always the next logical step in our strategy for helping clients in the region manage their data, consolidate data centers, and incorporate cloud computing strategies into their IT environments.”
Lou Marchant joins the ASG team as a Senior Account Executive. A former engineer with an extensive background in the hardware and software industries, Marchant has over 20 years of sales experience in the Dallas market.

As an engineer for ASG, she will apply her technical expertise configuring and designing converged infrastructures and cloud computing architectures.
“We’re fortunate to add Lou and Shari to our growing operation in Dallas. They both have considerable experience working in the Dallas area and highly technical backgrounds, which make them a natural fit for ASG,” affirms Smith. “We’re excited to have them join our team.”
As part of its investment in its TOLA regional offices, ASG participated in the 2012 INTERFACE conference on April 5, 2012 at the Westin Park Central in Dallas.
