Mike Gottwalt, a 15-year veteran of the channel, is Broadvoice’s first vice president of strategic relationships, a new role created as a liaison between Broadvoice and strategic partners, including national and regional master agencies and technology vendors. He previously was Telarus’ area vice president of sales for the Central region.

“My new role is squarely focused on creating and strengthening relationships so that our partners trust in Broadvoice to help them transition their businesses from selling mostly commodity connectivity to adding high-value applications like UCaaS that drive revenue for partners,” Gottwalt said.

Jason Shawgo, a 14-year UCaaS veteran, has joined the company as its area vice president for the East Coast, and will oversee channel sales teams and strategies in the region. He previously was account director of unified communications and collaboration at CenturyLink.

“I am incredibly excited to join Broadvoice at such a remarkable time,” Shawgo said. “In addition to expanding market presence, Broadvoice is keenly focused on operational excellence and actively improving the b-hive architecture – initiatives that will bring significant value to our partners and their clients.”

Nick Madsen, a direct and channel sales operations exec with 12 years of experience, has been promoted to area vice president for the West Coast, and will oversee channel sales teams and strategies in the region. He joined Broadvoice in November and most recently was director of sales for the Central and West regions for StarLeaf.

“In the last few months I’ve met many of our partners, and it’s refreshing to see how dedicated they are to Broadvoice,” Madsen said. “They love the company, they love the culture, they love the people that work here. I’m excited to take on this role with this team.”

Broadvoice said the additions reinforce its commitment to the channel.

Broadvoice has grown rapidly as a channel-first organization,” said Kim McLachlan, Broadvoice’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “We have brought on proven channel leaders who can optimize the alignment between our resources and sales partners – master agents and sub-agents – so we can continue to grow revenues together.”
