Broadvoice has appointed Eric Brooker, formerly with Viasat, ShoreTel and Ecessa, as director of channel.

In his new role, Brooker will work with regional channel managers to execute territory strategies as well as identify, recruit and cultivate strategic partner alliances that align with the company, and support its growth and market expansion.


Broadvoice’s Eric Brooker

“I am thrilled to be joining the team at Broadvoice,” he said. “The culture, products and channel-friendly philosophy really drew me in. Broadvoice is strong financially, yet small enough to be nimble and work hand-in-hand with partners and clients to deliver an amazing experience — and its products are terrific. It’s a great time to be in the UC space, and I’m truly excited to be a part of a company that has such a bright future.”

Brooker brings nearly 20 years of industry experience in channel-related sales leadership positions. Prior to joining Broadvoice, he most notably was the channel chief for Ecessa, an SD-WAN manufacturer.

“We’re extremely delighted to add Eric to our team,” said Tessley Smith, Broadvoice’s vice president of channel. “With our rapid growth and expansion, it was essential for us to find the right person. Eric is a high-energy guy, and his enthusiasm is infectious. He has a proven track record of developing channel strategies and supporting channel-partner success, and I know his experience and talents will benefit all of our partners across the country.”

Brooker’s appointment follows the recent additions of Vincent Mussumeci as senior channel manager, and Alan Kaplan and Randy Greene as regional channel managers.

Last month, Broadvoice unveiled its new UCaaS and virtual contact-center platform, delivering cloud communications capabilities for SMBs nationally.
