RapidScale's Susan EakleShe most recently worked as executive vice president of business development for Teleproviders, and she spent more than a decade at Windstream-acquired PAETEC as a channel manager.

Eakle says it’s an exciting time to join the company.

“Not only are the people here amazing and dedicated, but being a part of a customer-focused organization is personally important to me, so helping RapidScale grow, achieve, and maintain such a corporate value is very exciting.”

“Not only will this pay off by providing our clients the best experience, but our strategic partnerships with MSOs, carriers, VARs and MSPs will also see a higher level of partner support and focus.”

The company said last year that it was planning to increase its number of offices and deploy new cloud facilities in the upcoming year. It has made public its strategy of partnering its cloud services with multiple-system operators (MSOs).

“The shift to cloud for businesses is further developing and RapidScale is in such a strong position to be a game-changer in the global managed cloud services and CloudDesktop market,” Jeter said in November. “The “cloud” has become a proven concept and is now primed for global adoption, and RapidScale will be the front runner for that deployment.”
