Unified Communication as a Service (UCaaS) provider, Access4, today announced it has appointed former Vocus Executive, Scott Carter, as Chairman of the Board.
Tim Jackson, Access4 Managing Director, said that the company had actively targeted Scott for the role given his significant experience leading fast-growing tech businesses.
“Scott has a track record of success with driving growth in the channel and our goal is to double our partner base in Australia and New Zealand over the next 12 months. He will provide the experienced leadership needed for this next phase of aggressive growth and also play a pivotal role in the Series C capital raise the business is currently undertaking.”
Scott Carter brings over two decades of industry experience to the business, most recently as CEO of
enterprise and government at Vocus Communications, CEO of Vocus Consumer and COO of M2 Group. Carter said, “I am excited to join this specialist fast growing business that has solved the challenge for channel partners to allow them to capitalise on the market opportunity presented by unified communications and grow their profits.
I have seen first-hand the cost, complexity, time to market and deployment issues encountered by the channel to deliver UC solutions and how this has held them back in the past.
Access4 solves these issues through its proprietary SASBOSS platform, a turnkey solution that delivers an intuitive suite of communication products from global leaders including BroadSoft (Cisco) and Microsoft Teams,” said Carter.
Jackson said, “We see exciting times ahead from a product development perspective, especially with the new Microsoft Teams product, which will open new partner markets. Demand is set to be high for hybrid business communication utilising BroadWorks and MS Teams Collaboration.”
