Inclarity has appointed two new Sales Managers who together bring approximately 21 years senior selling experience to the rapidly expanding Hosted VoIP provider. Mike Ovenden joins as Sales Manager for the South and Philip Alton joins as Sales Manager for the North. Their combined expertise will enable Inclarity to support increased activity on the direct sales side, complimenting the success of its channel programme. This year alone, Inclarity has grown by 150%.
Mike Ovenden is an experienced executive management professional with extensive experience of the IP, ISP and telecoms industries. Previously, Mike worked for Viatel Limited, a UK solutions provider to the SME market place, providing MPLS IPVPN/IPSec, VoIP and Broadband and collocation/hosting services. Before that he was Sales Director for Aramiska, a Europe-wide satellite broadband internet services provider. He has also held positions with ISL Limited/Thrupoint, Chernikeef, Siemens Networks and Perle Systems.
Philip Alton has seven years sales experience in the IT and telecoms industries. Prior to joining Inclarity, Philip was Sales Manager at communications solutions provider Date Pennine Telecom Ltd. He has also previously held positions as Key Account Manager/Sales Manager for Manchester-based Your Communications and Senior Account Manager at IT solutions provider Redstone Communications.
“The Hosted VoIP market will continue to experience dynamic growth over the next few years. In fact, the latest research from Instat projects that revenues will exceed $2 billion by 2010,” said Enzo Viscito, Sales Director for Inclarity. “Cost savings and the flexibility offered by Hosted VoIP make it an attractive option for many organisations from small businesses to larger enterprises. Multi-location businesses and those with mobile or distributed employees are also quickly catching on to the benefits.”
“As companies assess their ability to deploy and manage VoIP services, many are finding that they lack the capital and expertise required. This is where Inclarity can provide value. These new appointments will help us to tap further into this dynamic market,” Enzo concluded.
