Hosted IP provider Telesphere is expanding its focus on partners with the hiring of two channel managers on opposite sides of the country.
For the East Coast, Telesphere has hired industry veteran Josh Redick as regional indirect channel manager. Redick comes to the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based company after working for Vocal IP Networx, Clearwire and XO Communications. At Telesphere, Redick will work with existing partners and recruit new ones.
"We’re looking to really deepen our East Coast base of business of enterprise customers," Redick said. "It doesn’t matter whether the business has one office or a thousand offices, Telesphere’s network has extensive capabilities to keep businesses covered."
Meantime, Telesphere is jumping into the Southern California market by hiring Rob McCarthy as indirect channel manager for California. Telesphere plans to better target enterprises and government agencies, thanks to McCarthy and his partners.
McCarthy joined Telesphere from Reaction Communications, a data, voice and IP telephony provider for businesses.
