Broadvoice Appoints Tess Smith as Director of Sales

Broadvoice, a provider of hosted voice, unified communications (UC) and SIP trunking services for consumers and businesses, has promoted Tessley Smith to the position of director of sales.

Smith, who brings 19 years of experience to his new role, started with Broadvoice in 2014 as a regional sales manager. Since then, he has worked to steadily expand the company’s successful channel sales strategy and its customer base.

“We could not be happier to tap an industry veteran from within our ranks to lead our sales efforts,” said Sam Ghahremanpour, president at Broadvoice. “Tess has been instrumental in building our channel ecosystem, promoting new ideas and being a strong team builder, leader and mentor. We have seen phenomenal growth in the past year, and look forward to many more quarters of triple-digit advances as he settles into this critical role.”

Prior to Broadvoice, the Kansas City, Mo.-based Smith held sales management positions at Nitel, Birch Communications and American Fiber Network. He holds a B.A. from Ottawa University.

“Broadvoice is an innovative, forward-thinking company that has set itself apart in the UC, cloud PBX and SIP Trunking space by being agile and offering a range of business solutions for companies of all sizes,” Smith said. “I’m excited to work with our channel partners and internal teams to continue to expand Broadvoice’s growing traction in the market.”
