LOS ANGELES – August 16, 2018 – AireSpring, the award-winning provider of cloud communications and managed connectivity solutions, is pleased to announce that channel leader and telecom industry veteran, Josh Redick, has joined as their new Northeast Channel Director. The new role has been created to help grow AireSpring’s footprint in the Northeastern U.S, harnessing the company’s growth in major markets across the nation. In this new role, Mr. Redick will draw on his 20-year career in the industry, as well as his many relationships with key partners in the region, to build a strong channel organization in the Northeast, modeled on the highly successful AireSpring prsence in other markets. He will also be tasked with recruiting additional channel managers for his team as well as partner support professionals.
Throughout his telecom career, Mr. Redick has excelled as a sales leader and as an organization leader. Initially, he worked for 11 years at XO Communications, first as a direct sales manager, then as general manager for the channel, leading a team of over 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 was named a President’s Club winner four times and helped to develop the Eastern region from their lowest performer to the top performing region, bringing many of his past partner relationships to the company, generating growth in hosted UCaaS, data networking and MPLS. He went on to become a senior channel manager at Broadview Networks (later acquired by Windstream), and worked with partners in the enterprise level environment.
“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,” said Redick. “The company stresses that we succeed through teamwork, egos are checked at the door, and our partners and customers come first,” added Redick. “That company-wide work ethic, the incredible product lineup, and the amazing QuoteSpring™ real-time, on-line quoting tool made my choice to join AireSpring an easy one.”
“We are really excited to welcome Josh to the AireSpring team,” stated Ron McNab, senior vice president channel sales at AireSpring. “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,” added McNab. “He has a deep understanding of our product offerings and differentiators in the marketplace.
