Her expertise in leveraging technology to meet the demands of SMBs for simplicity, affordability, and impact are distinct advantages that align well with our corporate objectives and ensure our customers’ success.”

Tubbs-Herron advanced consistently and notably in her sales career during 13 years at Digital Equipment Corporation and 17 years at Microsoft, where she led teams to the company’s top sales awards. Most recently, she was the East Region General Manager for Microsoft’s Small Midmarket Business and Distribution and guided her team in aligning and connecting programs with thousands of customers and partners throughout the US.

“iCorps is an exceptional company,”says Tubbs-Herron. “Trust, honesty, and integrity are exemplified by its employees from top management on down.

A Massachusetts native, Tubbs-Herron went to high school in New Bedford and lived in Boston while attending classes at Boston University. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Business from the University of Maryland. Her natural ability to guide people to their full potential led Tubbs-Herron to give structure to those talents: She is certified as a professional coach from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). She also is a member of the Information Technology Senior Management Forum (ITSMF) organization.

Tubbs-Herron’s successful sales career has taken her all over the United States; since her role at iCorps will require frequent travel along the East Coast to the IT company’s offices in Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia, she plans to remain based on South Carolina’s beautiful Hilton Head Island. “Traveling within one time zone will be a blessing,” Tubbs-Herron jokes. With family and friends still in Massachusetts, Tubbs-Herron looks forward in particular to her travels to iCorps’ Boston headquarters for regular meetings.

Hadley and Christopher Cook, iCorps’ Chief Financial Officer (CFO), eagerly await Tubbs-Herron’s official October 14 start date when she will begin to participate actively in strategy and planning sessions and meet the geographically extended iCorps team members.

“Kim is a proven leader with an unrelentingly passion for people, customers, and partners,” says Hadley. “As a Microsoft partner, we’ve witnessed her responsiveness, leadership, and technical abilities first hand. We are delighted that she has chosen to direct her talents exclusively to helping us propel our company’s growth and ensure strong partnerships with our customers.”
