New Jersey-based CLEC Spectrotel has announced that Ross Artale has been promoted to president and COO. Previously, he was vice president of operations at the channel-oriented provider.
“Since Ross’s arrival six years ago, he has proven to be a visionary leader,” said Jack Dayan, founder and CEO of Spectrotel. “Among many accomplishments, he expanded our agent program to be one of the best in the industry. The program has been a major force behind the double-digit growth in sales, and has brought about a transformation of Spectrotel from a regional telecom carrier to a nationwide, full-service telecommunications provider.”
Artale has more than 20 years of telecommunications experience. He began his career at Mobile Comm, a Bell South Company, and then later took management positions at two start-up companies, Geotek and Prism Communications. In 2000, Artale moved into the role of vice president of customer care for InfoHighway Communications, formerly known as Eureka Networks, where over the next seven years he was part of the management team that grew the company from a small start up to a $100 million corporation. In 2007 he joined Spectrotel as vice president of operations–a position he held until now.
