Just make sure, that the one with the marketing skills does also support stuff.
I've seen too many support things overmarketed.. "sure, we can handle this..."
To jump a bit: At least here in Finland we could use a company (why not a
group) doing support stuff with Linux. I don't think it would be too hard to
handle all the distributions with a little and knowledgeable staff. With the
pricetag of NT+software+no support you could easily sell all the hardware+
linux+ all the software+ support-contract stuff.
btw. I also know couple 'suits' who are extreamly sceptical about anykind
marketing. I count them as rare exceptions :) (..running Linux both..)
