8x8, Inc. (Nasdaq:EGHT), today announced it has some changes at both their board and management level.
Mansour Salame was named to its Board of Directors, effective January 2, 2012. The Company also announced the resignation of Donn Wilson from its Board of Directors, effective the same date. But the really big news is that that Kim Niederman, 8x8's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, has been promoted to President, overseeing the Company's sales, customer service and network operations teams.
It looks like 8x8 is heading on a path of Internation growth. The company, which has been making moves in the cloud computing space through a series of acquisitions uses a lot of its own patented and propriatary technology has largely moved from what was known as Packet8, a Vonage competitor where it sold to consumers and the SOHO market, into a company that goes after the small business market. Their private platform allows them to be free of royalties to companies like Broadsoft but they are licensing their video platform from Polycom.
Bryan Martin remains CEO and Chairman of the Board.
