Florida-based Cordia Corp., a CLEC, has appointed Kevin Griffo as its new president and COO.
Griffo, a 23-year telecom veteran, comes to Cordia from Talk American Holdings Inc., where he was executive vice president of local service, sales and direct sales.
Griffo will oversee the expansion of Cordias domestic consumer and business phone service, as well as the direct sales efforts related to Cordias VoIP rollout. He replaces Patrick Freeman, who now serves as Cordias CTO.
[T]he hiring of an industry veteran such as Kevin is a key addition to our executive management team and provides the necessary management depth to help us sustain our growth in revenues and build upon the earnings we have established during the past six months, says Joel Dupre, Cordias CEO.
Griffo also served as president and COO of Access One Communications for two years, before that company was acquired by Talk America.
