CHANNEL PARTNERS — McGraw Communications (Booth 3019) said on Wednesday it has hired Kevin Sheehan as director of strategic services, overseeing marketing, and product development and branding.
Sheehan comes to McGraw from its sister company, Business Communications Management. He has spent more than 13 years in the communications industry.
"We are always looking forward, with a view toward continuing to differentiate McGraw from the rest of the pack by delivering out-of-the-box solutions," said Frank Ahearn, CEO of McGraw. "Positioning Kevin Sheehan in this leadership role ensures that we will continue to execute on our vision with a strong foundation and a clear direction."
One of Sheehan's main tasks will be to promote VitalView, McGraw's managed services tool. VitalView gives end users one portal for viewing their networks, across carriers, and for monitoring SNMPs devices, SNMP trap notification, performance reporting and more. CIO Geoff Bloss played a key role in developing VitalView.
