Rand has been named vice president, business development for the Southeast region. A 10 year veteran in helping educational organizations manage their technology assets, Rand previously was an account executive at Apple, where he serviced hundreds of school districts in Texas. Notably, he helped Stephenville Independent School District deliver technology to every student (1:1), deploying more than 4,000 iPads in under two years.

Egan joined the company as national account executive—enterprise.
