Hart brings a wealth of experience to the role having spent four years as senior channel manager at 8x8, where he built the partner channel and created the wholesale division. This understanding will aid the relationship between the companies, as Zest4 has a strategic wholesale distribution partnership with 8x8. More recently, Hart worked with Connex One to focus on contact centre solutions, where he built the channel programme and developed key support mechanisms to take to market.
Mandy Fazelynia, managing director of Zest4, said, “Adam’s experience with major vendors of cloud and contact centre solutions, coupled with a hands-on approach in assisting partners selling new cloud products are key assets he brings to Zest4. His UC and contact centre experience will attract new partners and help existing partners find opportunities in their base.”
Hart added, “I believe that resellers deserve the ability to purchase telecom solutions that are interoperable, having multiple vendors can cause friction, especially when issues arise! Zest4 supply the connectivity, the unified communications, the mobiles and security which ensures a better experience for partners and their customers. Zest4 provide an excellent service wrap around this product set and I look forward to spearheading the growth in this area of the business.”
