April 15, 2015

Real time communications solutions provider GENBAND is continuing to focus its efforts on expanding and growing offerings for service providers, enterprises, independent software vendors, systems integrators and developers throughout the world.  To help keep the momentum going, the company has announced the appointment of Patrick Joggerst as Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.

Joggerst will play a key role in helping the company capitalize on success GENBAND is already seeing in the market. Specifically, Joggerst will be responsible for the company’s marketing, training and go-to-market initiatives. He will report directly to Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David Walsh.

Walsh noted that this is perfect timing for Joggerst to join the team and his “unique mix of sales and marketing leadership experience makes him a perfect fit to serve in the role of CMO.”

“I have had the privilege of working with Patrick previously and know that his deep understanding of the communications industry and strong leadership abilities are just what we need to continue the great momentum we have established and elevate our marketing efforts even further as we move forward,” Walsh said.

Prior to joining GENBAND, Joggerst was the Vice President of Global Sales at BroadSoft.

“The innovation that the team is bringing to market along with the pace that the industry is moving makes this one of the most exciting opportunities of my professional career, and I am looking forward to working with David and the rest of the leadership team to help the company capitalize on the numerous opportunities that lie ahead,” Joggerst said.

Next month, GENBAND will be hosting Perspectives15, a five-day event to offer a forum for networking and sharing about the latest trends and opportunities in communications.

The conference is taking place on May 17-21 at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes and will also feature a Solutions Showcase from sponsors and partners. This year’s featured keynote speaker is Sir Ken Robinson and even includes live entertainment from American rock band KANSAS as part of the agenda.
