Sonus Networks, Inc. - Analyst/Investor Day

Stocks in this article: SONS

So my suggestion to you here before I hand it off to this team is our story is ready. We have the right team. I'll introduce them to you shortly. We are on the right strategy, and we are going after the right markets. And these markets are big.

The folks that I'll ask you to talk -- to meet with today include Todd Abbott, who is our EVP of Strategy & Go-To-Market; Tony Scarfo, who runs our technology and development organization; David Tipping, who is our General Manager to the SBC market; and Dave has been focused on that for the last year; and it's no mistake that the focus that comes from dedicated leadership drives results. He'll talk to you a lot more about that. And then, Moe will give us a financial review of not only our prior quarters, but our going forward quarters and give you some view as to what we're driving on synergies for NET.

Before we introduce Todd, I'd like to show you a 90-second video of where Sonus is going. And I'm told that will be just 1 minute before the 90-second start, so it's a 2.5-minute video, which starts really slow.


Let's go right to our first speaker. Why don't you put that back on slide. Okay. So I'd like to introduce Todd Abbott. Todd is -- Todd joined the organization 18 months ago. I asked him to lead the sales organization. He then took on the marketing organization, which we were doing very little of. And hopefully, you've seen a great deal of change there. He then took on business development and now owns the strategy function. The entire front end of our strategy through the go-to-market, with all of those transformations that I talked about have been led by and will continue to be driven by Todd Abbott. Todd came from a wealth of experience in Cisco, IBM, Avaya, a number of other places. And I couldn't be more thrilled to hand it off now to one of my principal partners driving this transformation, Todd Abbott.
