Industry Veteran Michaud To Helm NetCentrex

NetCentrex, a leading player in the Triple Play space announced the appointment of industry veteran David Michaud as the new CEO of Netcentrex, Inc. effective today.

Mr. Michaud brings almost 25 years of telecommunications experience, a proven track record of establishing new telecom companies, and extensive experience accelerating their growth. In fact his resume reads like a who’s who of companies that have had an impact on the success of our industry: Carrius, NexTone Communications, Taqua Systems, Tekelec, Excel Communications, Lucent Technologies... His career also includes positions at DSC Communications, AT&T Bell Labs, Southwestern Bell, and IBM.

Michaud replaces Alain Fernando-Santana who is leaving to pursue other industry opportunities. We’ll certainly be hearing from him again soon.

I spoke briefly with NetCentrex VP of Marketing Brian Mahony, who told me that the change at the top does not automatically mean radical changes at the company. In fact, the focus will remain on expanding sales and making the most of the current market opportunity.

Brian told me to watch out for some upcoming customer announcements, which quite possibly will be made at the upcoming Internet Telephony Conference & EXPO in Ft. Lauderdale later this month.

Brian will be keynoting the event as one of the featured speakers on Friday January 27th and will be participating in a must-attend panel on The Current State of IPTV on Wednesday afternoon (1/25).

In other news, NetCentrex announced its expansion in the U.S. with the opening of an East Coast office in the Boston area. Mr. Michaud will be staffing the Massachusetts office and the pan is to expand the team with top industry talent in the coming months.
