AireSpring, a global MSP and next-generation aggregator that specializes in Managed IT, Network Services and UC, announced that Jaime Zarate (pictured) joined its channel team as Regional Channel Manager for the Dallas/Fort Worth, North Texas and Oklahoma regions.
Zarate has more than 30 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, and has established deep relationships with partners and customers across Texas. He began his career as Account Executive and Regional Product Manager for AT&T, honing his skills in direct sales as well as national account management. As Sales Director for Rockwell FirstPoint, Zarate helped develop and lead channel strategy in the U.S. and Latin America. He was also with Unisys (Global Alliances Director) and XO Communications (Senior Manager, Innovation and Strategy).
Before joining AireSpring, Jaime served as Senior Channel Manager with Fusion Connect, where he helped partners and customers find solutions ranging from hosted voice to UC and managed security. He also specialized in UCaaS / CCaaS, networking, SD-WAN, SASE and security.
“I’m incredibly excited to be here at AireSpring,” said Zarate. “I worked with Mike Sullivan (AireSpring VP, Channel Sales) at Fusion Connect and respect him as a leader and mentor. I’ve also known John Young (AireSpring SVP,Channel Sales) a long time and look forward to being a member of his team. But what really solidified my decision to join AireSpring is the great leadership and the fact that AireSpring is a privately-owned, debt-free company. It positively affects how we interact with partners and customers, and I wanted to be a part of that.”
“We are thrilled to have Jaime on Team AireSpring,” added Young. “His experience in the industry and extensive product knowledge and market analysis expertise, along with the relationships he’s developed in the channel, will be invaluable to us as we continue to grow in the Dallas/Fort Worth, North Texas, and Oklahoma regions.”
