Broadvox LLC announced Tuesday that it has appointed Craig Eidem as its new CTO. Eidem is a former colleague of Broadvox's new CEO and president, Bruce Chatterley, who joined the company in mid-March.
Eidem spent more than five years as CTO at Speakeasy where Chatterley was CEO. Speakeasy was acquired by Best Buy in 2007 and in 2010 merged with MegaPath and Covad. Following the merger, Eidem served as vice president of network integration at MegaPath for less than a year, departing at roughly the same time as Chatterley.
Prior to Speakeasy, Craig spent 20 years in a variety of leadership roles at Honeywell International, Advanced Radio Telecom, AT&T Wireless, Sundstrand, and Telematic Products. Most recently, Eidem was the head of IT at Meteorcom, a joint venture of railroad companies building a nationwide wireless network to control traffic.
"Craig’s experience in scaling a technology organization in a high customer growth environment will be important as we execute our growth plans," said Chatterley in a press statement. “Craig also brings a strong technological and operational expertise, and we are pleased to have him as part of our management team."
Eidem replaces Broadvox founder Andre Temnorod, who has been the company's CTO and also serves as chairman of the board.
Both Chatterley's and Eidem's appointments follow the recent expansion of the company with the acquisition of Cypress Communications in early 2011.
