Today, web performance monitoring provider Uptrends announced appointing Fred Dilkes as U.S. General Manager and Executive Vice President. Fred is located in Florida, where he has lived for the past 29 years. He is based out of the Florida office but manages operations for the entire U.S. team, including the Uptrends office in Massachusetts.
“We’re very excited to welcome Fred to our team,” said Niels Brinkman, CEO and Co-founder of Uptrends. “With Fred’s tremendous experience of managing high growth software companies, we’re confident that we’ll be able to provide an even better monitoring solution to our customers. Fred’s leadership and expertise will be crucial to our success as we strive to help more and more companies monitor their online presence.”
Fred’s primary goal at Uptrends is to assist with getting the word out about our website monitoring tools.
“I want to help Uptrends continue with their revenue growth and customer outreach,” Fred said. “I want to accelerate the already fast growth that Uptrends has been doing.”
Fred has been in the monitoring industry for a long time, having worked at two other website monitoring companies. Within two years he helped grow his former company by over $15 million in revenue, and later went on to join a different company where he managed to triple their sales in just one year.
In June Fred attended the Internet Retail Conference and Exhibition (IRCE) in Chicago with other members of the Uptrends sales team.
“I was excited about the opportunity to be at IRCE and meet a lot of people from online retail,” Fred said. “I was happy to share what Uptrends can do to help them improve their sales.”
When not in work Fred enjoys spending time with his wife and their three boys. He gets out on the ocean whenever he’s able to.
“I’m an avid fisherman,” Fred said. “I love getting out on the boat and being on the water.”
Fred will continue to work out of the Florida office and provide sales and support to customers as well as the rest of the Uptrends team.
