Mitel Makes EMEA Executive Appointments

It takes the right leadership to drive accelerated growth. No matter how innovative the UCaaS solution your organization sells may be, people are what put businesses on the path to growth. And especially in the highly competitive and crowded cloud communications, an exceptional executive team can make a big difference.

Mitel announced two executive appointments today, naming Christopher Chany Managing Director in France, and Thomas Veit Regional Vice President, Rest of Europe (Nordics, Benelux, Spain, Italy, Middle East, Russia, CIS and Austria/CEE). Mitel is maintaining focus on accelerated cloud adoption in addition to growing on-site market presence.

“Cloud adoption is gaining traction in France, where we’re seeing double digit growth,” said Christophe Chamy, Managing Director, Mitel France. “With a large installed base and a complete portfolio of on-site and both private and public cloud solutions, Mitel is best-placed to drive customers’ migration to the cloud and most importantly, help them make the most of real-time communications and collaboration.”

The two new appointees will report directly to Jeremy Butt, Vice President International at Mitel, joining an EMEA leadership team that already includes Ulrich Blatter, Managing Director Mitel Swtizerland, Manuel Ferre-Hernandez, Managing Director Mitel Germany and Richard Roverts, Vice President UK, Ireland and South Africa.

The team is composed of experienced, cloud/IT veterans.  Crafted to ride the inertia of such a transformational technology and in a prime position to further the presence of cloud communications, only time will tell what’s next for Mitel.

Jeremy Butt, Senior Vice President International, Mitel, explained, “The EMEA market has now entered an acceleration phase where businesses of all sizes are transforming and transitioning to cloud-based communications and collaboration. These leadership changes will ensure we maximize the momentum built to date.”

Mitel is serious in the EMEA. Are your communications in the cloud, yet?
