Alianza, Inc., announced today that veteran communications industry expert Scott Wharton has joined Alianza’s Board of Directors. Wharton, who serves as Logitech’s Vice President and General Manager of the Video Collaboration Group, brings more than two decades of leadership experience driving and managing rapid and substantial growth at leading-edge communications technology companies.
“Scott’s rare combination of communications market expertise and real-world, experience combined with his successful development and growth of next-gen communications technologies make him an ideal match for Alianza’s Board of Directors, and we are very fortunate to have him on our team,” said Brian Beutler, CEO and Founder of Alianza. “Scott’s creativity, vision, expertise, and collaborative leadership style will play a pivotal role as we look to capitalize on our position as the only true cloud-native, carrier-grade communications platform built for service providers — a solution that allows service providers to address a clear and growing market need for advanced unified communications solutions by offering their own UCaaS solutions, rather than ceding revenue opportunities and customer relationships to over the top (OTT) voice applications. Adding someone of Scott’s caliber to our board is a tremendous validation of our business model, team, solution set and trajectory. I know that Scott will have an immense, positive impact not just on Alianza’s future success, but on our service provider customers’ success as well.”
