PGi, the collaboration software and services provider, has promoted John Stone to chief revenue officer, Sean O’Brien to chief strategy officer and June McCarthy to executive vice president of marketing.
Stone previously was executive vice president and managing director of PGi International. In his new role, he will be responsible for the global sales and field operations organizations, and for the company’s global revenue growth.
O’Brien’s role has been expanded to include corporate strategy and business development, in addition to his ongoing responsibilities of managing PGi’s global corporate development/M&A program, and leading its legal and HR organizations.
With a background in cross-functional marketing – everything from product, pricing and packaging to Six Sigma quality and efficiency – McCarthy’s experience in both product and marketing roles gives her a “strong perspective on how to manage global go-to-market efforts” in her new role, the company said.
“PGi has refined our worldwide operations and organizational alignment to support our global audio, web and video conferencing customers, while at the same time we continue to aggressively develop our partner channel,” said Ted Schrafft, PGi ‘s CEO and president. “These executive moves will deliver on PGi’s unified, global strategy, which will bring even more benefits, consistency and efficiencies to PGi customers, agents and service providers. The level of innovation in the collaboration market is incredible, and I’m excited that John, Sean and June will help drive our business forward and accelerate growth in their new roles.”
PGi has made several internal changes to better support partners, and is focused on key business collaboration trends in the coming years.
