Bigleaf Networks adds Telecom & SD-WAN Veteran Brooker to Channel Team

Eric Brooker has joined the Bigleaf team as senior director of national partner programs.

Brooker brings over 20 years of telecom and SD-WAN experience with channel-leading companies like Broadvoice, Viasat, Ecessa and ShoreTel.

This news follows the announcement of Bigleaf’s $21MM series B funding, signaling an increased investment in the master agent channel. In this new role, Brooker will work hand-in-hand with Bigleaf’s master agent partners around the world to put that investment to work enabling and supporting Bigleaf’s network of telecom agents and MSPs.

Bigleaf has become a highly differentiated vendor in a growing, and sometimes crowded, SD-WAN market. Current networking technologies have been built for the large enterprise use-case of site-to-site networking. SMB and mid-sized companies are left behind – companies with the uptime and performance requirements of a large enterprise but without the budget or IT expertise or site-to-site focus.

Brooker is the fifth new addition to Bigleaf’s channel team in 2019, with more hires expected.
