RapidScale has hired another former, well-known, person from PAETEC.
Eric Solomon, who most recently served as a PAETEC channel manager, comes to the California-based cloud provider as director of channels.
RapidScale was founded by Randy Jeter, who worked for PAETEC for almost seven years. As such, RapidScale is made up of many employees who were colleagues of Jeter's during the PAETEC days, before that company was bought by Windstream.
Solomon is a familiar face and name to partners. He has worked in the channel for years, with roles at companies including ICG Communications, Cbeyond, Covad and, of course, PAETEC. Indeed, readers of Channel Partners magazine voted Solomon a Top 15 Channel Manager four times.
At RapidScale, Solomon is responsible for developing relationships with VARs, MSPs, master agents and agents. He is based in the Chicago area and will host a meet-and-greet with partners in that region on Feb. 19.
