NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- New Canaan's Brian J. Kelley is set to serve as the new chief executive officer for snom, a developer of IP desktop business phones.
The Berlin-based group recently announced that Kelley would take over as CEO after previously working as manager of snom’s business in the Americas. Kelley is set to take over the company's headquarters in Woburn, Mass.
As CEO, Kelley will be responsible for expanding snom’s market presence and leading its growth in all its core markets along with Michael Knieling, COO and Usman Tahir, CTO, in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific.
"He will build on snom’s strong foundation as a leading developer of standards-based IP phones and communications devices for the business market," representatives said. "Today snom has a comprehensive lineup of SIP-based business phones and Microsoft Lync Qualified phones, among other products."
Kelley has more than 30 years of executive management experience.
“The worldwide VoIP and Unified Communications markets are growing by double digits as businesses seek to reduce telecom costs and leverage the productivity enhancing features of these voice-driven IP communications services,” said Kelley. “Snom has established a strong foothold in this highly competitive market and is well positioned to take advantage of these growing opportunities.”
Kelley joined snom in 2012 after a career spent in senior management at leading communications technology companies.
“Snom is committed to being at the forefront of IP-based voice communications and I look forward to growing our international presence and delivering a new generation of innovative business communications products,” said Kelley. “This starts with a relentless focus on the customer and working with our technology and channel partners to introduce collaborative-based products and services that deliver a high degree of value to our business customers.”
