At Broadvox, Arnaud will be responsible for all retail product management and development, platform and customer application development, and for developing a disciplined strategy and process for consolidating and scaling the companys technology platforms.
All three appointments follow the recent expansion of the company with the acquisition of Cypress Communications in early 2011.
