"Westcon/Comstor is a 4 billion dollar global distributor of Cisco technologies.  Our customers are value added resellers of Cisco products and other advanced technologies and services.  We differentiate ourselves as a distributor by offering our customers value added programs and services that enable them to be more successful.

Healthcare is one of the largest and most important vertical industries that we and our customers sell to, and we have determined that we require the assistance of experienced resources to provide us with the guidance that we and our customers need to be successful.  We have therefore engaged the Brian Higgins Group in the US for Healthcare Industry thought leadership and program direction.

Brian has an impressive resume of leading technology companies to succesful positions in the healthcare sector.  In the short time that he has been engaged with us, he has demonstrated himself to be knowledgeable, thorough and extremely effective.  He interacts extremely well with our team as well as the teams of our technology partner (Cisco) and our customers.  He posesses exceptional leadership qualities, he is an expert sales and market strategist, and is an outstanding communicator.  We view Brian as a vital resource to leading and guiding our customers and us to success in the very unique world of healthcare and technology."

"Brian Higgins is a difference maker. While that could easily be inferred from his track record of success in senior leadership positions in sales, strategy, and business development, what may not be obvious is the manner in which Brian brings about results. I have been able to see first hand Brian's unique ability to combine a mastery of healthcare IT and strategic sales with a true gift for effective communication. We all know filling a room with smart people is by itself not enough to solve complex problems. Brian Higgins can make a difference and help any organization achieve their goals by solving the right problem in the right way.”
