New Netcentrex CEO

Netcentrex has been doing a great job growing and their penetration in VoIP and triple-play solutions has increased nicely over the years. They now have a new CEO.

David Michaud has been appointed new CEO with responsibility for the Americas market. If you do not already know David, he has extensive experience in this market including founding or leading roles with Taqua, NexTone, Excel, and Carrius.

He brings almost 25 years of telecommunications experience, a proven track record of establishing new telecom companies, and extensive experience accelerating their growth. Recently he led sales and marketing initiatives for startups in the IP networking business, including Carrius and NexTone Communications.

In 1997 he founded and became Chairman and CEO of Taqua Systems, a telecommunications switch developer sold to Tekelec for $85 million in March 2004. From 1992 to 1995 Michaud served as head of sales and marketing at Excel Communications where he grew the company six-fold in three years, becoming the leader in the programmable switch market and providing a foundation for the eventual $1.7 billion acquisition by Lucent Technologies.

His career also includes positions at DSC Communications, AT&T Bell Labs, Southwestern Bell, and IBM. He holds an MBA from Washington University, St. Louis and a BS from Carroll College.
