The appointment is the latest in a series of moves to accelerate the company’s channel sales development and expansion nationally. Prior to joining TPx, Gossert was director of channel sales at CallTower and a channel manager for MegaPath, where he was responsible for the support and growth of agent and VAR partnerships.
“After discussing the opportunity with several key partners and getting their buy-in, it was clear that joining TPx was a great path for me,” Gossert said. “TPx is channel-focused and offers a very strong UCaaS and managed services portfolio that I’m certain will resonate with partners and their clients in the region. I couldn’t be more pleased to join the TPx team and I’m looking forward to contributing to their aggressive expansion nationwide.”
Gossert will use his existing partner relationships to recruit partners and “quickly build a strong TPx presence in the Mid-Atlantic region,” according to the company. He will work with the channel on technology selection, offering design and customer service.
“In the coming months, Shane will be joined by an ever-increasing TPx national account manager team as we grow in Chicago, Philadelphia, D.C. and Atlanta, to name a few markets,” said Jim Delis, TPx’s senior vice president of national channel development, who is leading the company’s national channel expansion. “Stay tuned – there’s much more to come.”
Last week, TPx announced it is joining the TrustedSky association in a partnership that will give it access to new diagnostic tools.
