Impact Telecom has appointed Chris Holloway to guide the company’s channel strategy as it expands its commercial products and services.
Holloway’s title is director of national channel. Impact Telecom, which provides voice, data and messaging services, is amping up its focus on the commercial sector and looking to Holloway, who has worked in the channel for almost 20 years, to help lead those efforts.
“Impact sees agents as partners, and we are excited about leveraging multiple reliable agent programs to extend our reach in the commercial market," said Bob Beaty, president of Impact Telecom. “This opportunity provides Holloway with a great playground to develop a channel strategy and offer a strong support platform to agents."
Impact Telecom hired Holloway from Cbeyond Inc., where he was serving as regional vice president of channel development. Before that, he was co-founder and president of sales and operations at MpACT Wholesale and Liquidators.
Impact Telecom last year bought Matrix Telecom and AmericaTel. Earlier this year, the Denver-based company wrapped the purchase and integration of SMS provider Citessentials.
