MONTREAL — February 2, 2022 — Cloudli Communications, a leading North American provider of voice, data and messaging solutions, announced the appointment of Rick Boyd as Vice President of Sales and Business Communications. Leading the Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) channel sales programs for Cloudli and ConnectMeVoice by Cloudli will be among his chief responsibilities. Boyd’s hire emphasizes the company’s commitment to the managed services provider (MSP), technology solutions brokerage (TSB), agent and strategic partner community as well as its ongoing expansion efforts throughout North America.
With more than 30 years of experience overseeing sales, account management and business development teams, Boyd will help refine and expand the company’s channel programs and offerings. His depth of understanding of the partner and end-user communities will provide insight for improving partner service and support capabilities.
“Cloudli’s industry-leading UCaaS, CCaaS and alerting services perfectly fit the business needs of SMBs and create fantastic opportunities for MSPs, TSBs, agents and other strategic partners alike,” said Boyd. “Too many companies still rely on legacy communications solutions — and partners are looking for new ways to help those companies make the move to the cloud. With Cloudli's continued growth and expansion, I will work closely with new and existing partners to help them present innovative, flexible and reliable cloud communications options to their customers.”
Boyd has an illustrious professional history in the channel spanning more than three decades, most recently serving as Vice President of Sales at Vbrick. He previously held executive positions with Talkdesk, 8x8, ShoreTel, VeriSign and Mitel.
“Rick has gained tremendous respect across the channel, IT and telecom industries over the years working on behalf of the partner community,” said Gavin Macomber, CEO of Cloudli. “His connections with MSPs, TSBs, agents and strategic partners, as well as SMB leaders across North America make him a perfect fit for this new role. We have absolute confidence he will create greater business opportunities for our partners and further elevate Cloudli’s channel-centric portfolio and programs.”
