Fuze has changed CEOs, cut an undisclosed number of jobs, and shifted its Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) business to focus exclusively on enterprise customers.
The changes extend into Fuze’s c-suite, where CFO Brian Day succeeds Colin Doherty as CEO. Also, Senior VP Tom Siegel shifts to chief sales officer, succeeding Chris Doggett. Both Doherty and Doggett have exited the business, Day disclosed while thanking both executives for their service.
Fuze did not disclose whether the changes will impact the company’s channel partner strategy. The changes surface roughly three months after the Fuze Partner Summit 2019 attracted roughly 40 partners in Boston.
Fuze, which competes against Zoom, Cisco WebEx, Microsoft Skype and other cloud collaboration platforms, is backed by private equity firm Summit Partners and Bessemer Venture Partners.
