Broadvoice has hired Brian Kelly, formerly with Vonage, Cbeyond and Verizon, as regional channel manager in the Southeast, charged with partner recruiting and training, and providing sales support.

Kelly’s territories cover Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina. One of his tasks will be growing revenue through the company’s national channel program.

“I am very excited to join the team,” he said. “I’m looking forward to providing a fantastic product and world class support to my partner community.”

Kelly brings more than a decade of experience in industry sales and channel management to Broadvoice. He joins the company after 11 years at Vonage, where he was a channel sales manager. Prior to Vonage’s acquisition of Vocalocity, he helped build the channel from the ground up, and after the merger in 2013, he continued his role as channel sales manager and helped lead the first agent channel for Vonage.

“We’ve seen tremendous growth in the channel this year,” said Tessley Smith, Broadvoice’s vice president of channel. “With the addition of Kelly, we will help to solidify our presence across the country, expand our reach and better serve our partners.”

Broadvoice provides a portfolio of IP-based voice and data offerings backed by its IP telephony platform. In September, it launched its new Public Sector Program (PSP) aimed at helping channel partners with selling into government, education and not-for-profit organizations.
