Mitel Strengthens Cloud Sales Management Team With The Appointment Of Steve Kelly

OTTAWA, Sept. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a leading provider of cloud and premises-based unified communications software solutions, has expanded its sales management bench with the appointment of Steve Kelly to lead a new global sales team dedicated to Mitel's cloud offerings, including the Powered by Mitel wholesale offering for service providers. Several Mitel partners, including Black Box, RackForce and Windstream, have recently selected Powered by Mitel solutions as the underlying technology for their cloud services offerings.

"We continue to see strong growth and significant demand for cloud-based solutions with more than 300,000 public and private cloud users on the Mitel solution to date, up 71 percent over last year," said Jon Brinton, General Manager of Mitel's cloud business. "To take full advantage of this opportunity, we've built a dedicated and global MiCloud sales team under the strategic direction of Steve Kelly to further fuel and accelerate growth in this area."

Mr. Kelly joins Mitel from BT where he was vice president of international sales for wholesale services. Kelly has more than 25 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, including expertise in wholesale, enterprise and mobile solutions. In his new role as Mitel director of sales, Kelly and his team have a mandate to drive MiCloud sales worldwide.

"Mitel has an extremely strong value proposition that offers a simple but sophisticated path to the cloud," said Mr. Kelly. "Our single software stream is ideal for service providers looking to enter the cloud services market, and for organizations simply looking to leverage the benefits of cloud communications for their business operations. I'm excited to be able to share that story with partners and customers globally."

Mitel has steadily expanded its sales leadership over the past six months as it aggressively positions for revenue and market share growth. Joe Vitalone, executive vice president of sales for the Americas, joined Mitel from ShoreTel last spring, and has since continued to build his senior sales team with the addition of Tim Gaines, also from ShoreTel, who is now Mitel's vice president of sales for the U.S. and CALA and Sandra Hill from LifeSize, who is now Mitel's vice president of channel management and distribution for the U.S. and CALA. Kelly and his MiCloud sales team are integrated with the Mitel sales team with a focus on accelerating Mitel's cloud footprint.
