Unify Names Norm Korey General Manager Of Latin America

MUNICH, Germany and RESTON, Va., April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Unify, formerly Siemens Enterprise Communications, today announced that it has appointed Norm Korey to lead the company's Latin American Region (LAM).  Korey will replace Humberto Cagno , whose planned retirement is effective on June 30, 2014.

" Latin America represents a market of continued growth opportunity for Unify," said Dean Douglas, chief executive officer of Unify. "I'm confident that Norm's experience not only prepares him well to lead the LAM region, it also will enable him to be a key contributor as we transition Unify into a software and services market leader.  While I'm pleased to welcome Norm, I'd also like to acknowledge Humberto's contributions over his distinguished 30 year career." 

Korey brings to Unify a wealth of international sales and services leadership experience with global brands including IBM, AT&T and Motorola.  For the past four years, he led an IBM Global Services initiative incubating the SmartCloud software-as-a-service offering for the enterprise marketplace.  Previously, he managed software and services businesses in the mobility and wireless sectors across various international markets.

"I'm very pleased to be joining Unify at this important period in the company's history, building upon the momentum we have in the Latin America market and benefiting from the increased visibility of the new Unify brand both regionally and globally," Korey said.  " Latin America's economies continue to expand through technology investments, and this region will be an important growth engine for the business."

Cagno's planned retirement comes after a 30 year career at Siemens and then Unify, mostly in the enterprise market.   Korey, whose work at Unify begins immediately, will work closely with Cagno during a transition period until the end of June.   Korey joins a list of experienced IT executives who have joined Unify since the arrival early this year of Douglas as CEO, including:  Jon Pritchard, executive vice president of worldwide channels; Steve Shanck, general manager of North America; Bill Hurley, chief marketing officer; and Dan Papes, executive vice president of global sales.
