TELoIP Inc., which creates software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) solutions, has added Kevin Suitor as chief marketing officer.
With more than 35 years of networking industry experience in a variety of executive roles spanning marketing, product management, alliances and sales, Suitor will lead the company’s marketing and alliance efforts in the exploding SD-WAN arena.
Suitor joins TELoIP from WAN optimization technology vendor Exinda Networks, where he held an array of executive staff positions. Prior to his time at Exinda, he was instrumental in developing Redline Communications’ broadband wireless and WiMAX market development strategy. As vice president of marketing and business development, he helped Redline increase revenue at a pace that earned it recognition as the second fastest growing technology company in Canada by the Deloitte Canadian Technology Fast 50 Program in 2006, and led to public market listings on the LSE/AIM market and Toronto’s TSX exchange. Previously, Suitor held senior roles with CopperCom, CTI Datacom, Tekelec and Wandel & Goltermann Canada, and founded DCI Digital Communications Inc., which was sold to Tekelec in 1992.
“Kevin joins TELoIP at an exciting time, when demand for reliable SD-WAN infrastructure and services has never been greater,” said Rui Luis, CEO of TELoIP. “Not only does Kevin bring a strong understanding of the trends and technologies in wide area networking, but his hands-on experience in so many operational disciplines will be invaluable as we sharpen our focus on delivering increased value to our customers and partners.”
“TELoIP has clearly demonstrated industry leadership as an innovator of software-defined networking products and services,” added Suitor. “TELoIP’s patented VINO architecture positions the company to take advantage of one of the biggest opportunities in the industry in 20 years – SD-WAN. I am thrilled to join a company with a unique culture focused upon customer success and technology innovation. I look forward to helping further shape the company and market as part of the TELoIP team.”
