Aastra is pleased to announce that Patrick Drage has been appointed to the role of Distribution Manager for UK and Ireland operations.

Working with some of Scansource’s largest accounts, selling Avaya and Shoretel, Patrick also has experience with Panasonic, Swyx and Siemens voice platforms as well as other conferencing, call recording and video based products and services.

This role gives me a chance to do that. I will work to continue the growth of Aastra as a leading provider of enterprise communications by working very closely with our distributors.”
