Doggett brings more than 15 years of experience in enterprise technology sales leadership, including roles as global channel sales leader at Sophos and as managing director running North America for Kaspersky Lab. Most recently, he served as senior vice president of global sales at Carbonite, where he was responsible for achieving the company’s revenue goals and for the productivity of Carbonite’s sales and revenue marketing functions.

Fuze has a truly unique market opportunity to simplify the complex communications stacks of the world’s largest companies, get them into the cloud, and provide tools their employees will love,” he said. “I am excited to continue scaling the sales processes and team to enable Fuze to fully capitalize on the demand for our … platform.”

In February, Fuze appointed Colin Doherty as CEO. He joined the company after 10 years of holding CEO positions at BTI Systems and Arbor Networks.

Doggett joins Fuze at a time of rapid growth and expansion. The company is included on the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 list. In May, Fuze completed $134 million in financing led by Wellington Management, bringing the company’s total funding to more than $300 million.

“I am thrilled to have Chris on board as our chief sales officer,” Doherty said. “His deep technology experience, global enterprise sales management experience, and channel expertise make him the perfect sales leader to help take Fuze to the next level.”
