Appia Communications has named Rob Johnson as its regional manager for the Southwest.
The nationwide provider of managed communication and networking services began expanding its West Coast operations late last year. Based in Los Angeles, Johnson will serve Appia’s growing base of customers and channel partners throughout southern California and the Southwest.
Johnson comes to Appia with extensive experience in Cisco networking and managed VoIP deployments. He has focused on hosted VoIP services for the past four years, with an emphasis on the public sector and nonprofit organizations.
“Rob is a problem solver,” said Jason Ulm, Appia’s vice president of sales. “He is very good at getting the most out of technology, especially when an organization has limited resources. He’s a great addition to our team and a great resource for our customers and partners.”
