AireSpring, the cloud communications and managed connectivity provider, has hired Josh Redick, formerly with XO Communications, Broadview Networks and Windstream, as its new Northeast channel director.
The new role was created to help grow AireSpring’s footprint in the Northeastern United States, harnessing the company’s growth in major markets across the nation. In this new role, Redick will build a channel organization in the Northeast, modeled on the AireSpring presence in other markets.
He also will be responsible for recruiting additional channel managers for his team, as well as partner support professionals.
“I have always heard great reviews of AireSpring from key channel partners and peers, and I have now seen for myself that the entire company shares the same level of passion and commitment,” Redick said. “The company stresses that we succeed through teamwork, egos are checked at the door, and our partners and customers come first. That company-wide work ethic, the incredible product lineup, and the amazing QuoteSpring real-time, online quoting tool made my choice to join AireSpring an easy one.”
Redick worked for 11 years at XO, first as a direct sales manager, then as general manager for the channel, leading a team of more than 100 people. He moved on from there to Telesphere (later acquired by Vonage), where he spent six years as East Coast channel director based in New York. He then became a senior channel manager at Broadview Networks, later acquired by Windstream, and worked with partners in the enterprise level environment.
“We are really excited to welcome Josh to the AireSpring team,” said Ron McNab, AireSpring’s senior vice president of channel sales. “We are very focused on expanding our presence in the Northeast, and look forward to working with Josh to grow the AireSpring channel partner community there. He has a deep understanding of our product offerings and differentiators in the marketplace. We are confident Josh is well positioned to tell the AireSpring story to a growing audience of partners and end-users.”
