Adam Zimmerer is a Systems Engineer with SonicWALL and supports Silver and Gold partners in the Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas region in activities such as product training and pre-sales customer engagements.  He is also a member of the SonicWALL’s Email Security product leadership team where he is involved with strategic product marketing and road map planning. 

Adam’s IT career began in 1997 while working as an accountant.  After receiving his Masters of Science degree in that field, Adam knew IT was his new career path.  Early in his career, he learned about SonicWALL at a Citrix conference and subsequently started the Internet security practice for a web development company in Dallas, Texas where he grew them to SonicWALL’s first Gold partner in the area.  That led him to become the Network Systems Manager for one of his key customers, a Dallas based retail company with 25 locations, where he was responsible for building the infrastructure to support their expansion goals.  When he left that organization they had nearly 200 locations and a solid infrastructure they have in use today supporting about 400. 

Adam’s core competency is planning and building scalable and secure network infrastructure and his career he has had many successful large projects.  Some include complete infrastructure upgrades, office construction and relocations, data centers moves and build outs, and numerous small to large business network and WAN solutions for multi-location companies. 

Prior to joining SonicWALL in 2007 Adam was a Network Systems Manager and Consultant for a national consulting company.
