Vonage Expands Channel Team

Vonage has announced two key management appointments for its channel partner program.

Kyle Johnson has been promoted to senior vice president of sales, reporting to Gregg Fiddes, chief sales officer. And Vonage has also hired Gregg Rowe as regional vice president, Channel Sales, West, reporting to Johnson.

With this promotion, Johnson becomes head of Vonage’s channel sales, which provides more than 20 master agents and 350 sub-agents with cloud communications needs for business customers.

“Kyle has demonstrated extraordinary success in sales leadership throughout his career, and we are thrilled to be able to tap into his experience with the indirect channel to lead Vonage’s channel sales organization,” said Fiddes. “Under his direction, we will continue to provide channel partners with deep sales, marketing, training and engineering support to help them leverage Vonage’s robust offering of cloud communications solutions for businesses of any size.”

Rowe meanwhile is responsible for supporting Vonage’s channel partners in the West Region of the United States. He comes to Vonage from Lightstream, where he was the managing cloud co-director for solutions integration responsible for developing new lines of business for Lightstream’s cloud computing service. Prior to Lightstream, he held a number of sales management roles at CenturyLink (Qwest), last serving as area vice president.

“We are thrilled to have Gregg join our team,” Johnson said. “His deep experience in cloud communications and commitment to providing an exceptional partner experience will further strengthen the relationship between Vonage and our partners in the Western part of the country.”
