Reinvent Telecom, a provider of private-label, cloud-based unified communications, collaboration and contact center solutions, has promoted Ray Napoletano to vice president of sales and hired David Ansehl as senior channel manager.
Napoletano has worked for Reinvent and its parent company, Saddleback Communications, for the past decade, most recently as director of sales and service. During his tenure, he championed and built the Reinvent UCaaS solution and the Reinvent Partner Program. In his new role as vice president of sales, Napoletano will continue to oversee the Partner Program, but also invest more time in making improvements to marketing, tools, products, process automation and other key components.
“Ray is known as ‘Mr. Reinvent’ because of his steadfast commitment to helping our reseller-partners transform their businesses and stay relevant in a market that’s quickly moving to the cloud,” said Bill Bryant, president and general manager of Saddleback Communications. “His leadership is the reason Reinvent now delivers a leading cloud communications solution and a top-notch partner program. I am confident that in his new role, he will accelerate Reinvent’s growth throughout the U.S.”
The growth of the Reinvent Partner Program has spurred Napoletano’s promotion as well as the need for additional channel management. Ansehl is a key addition to the team as senior channel manager based out of Irvine, Calif.
Ansehl was most recently part of telecommunications systems division at Toshiba where he rose through the ranks from sales engineer to regional manager and, ultimately, director for the West before it was acquired by Mitel. In that capacity, he was instrumental in growing the division’s channel.
“We are very excited about David joining our team,” said Napoletano. “He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from his time at Toshiba, and he is a proven leader of successful channel partner programs. David will be a huge asset to our program and partners.”
Ansehl added, “Reinvent’s team has done a terrific job of developing a comprehensive private-label UCaaS solution that provides partners all of the tools needed to build a successful and profitable cloud telephony business. Not only do we provide an inherently cloud-first, feature-rich and redundant UCaaS platform, but also a portal with the back-office tools partners need to be successful, including private-label billing, if desired. We’ll handle all the invoicing, taxes, surcharges and the resources required to comply with FCC regulations. This way, we enable partners to own their customers, without the capital investment in equipment or manpower for back-office systems, or the need to work with additional third parties to execute and support those processes.”
