I've been in telecom for over a decade and I have never seen a company with such an entrepreneurial spirit and technology. I hope to play an important role in transforming iCore's financial processes and controls so they can fall in line with the sophisticated service and technology the company offers its clients.
Mc Lean, VA (PRWEB) October 31, 2008
iCore Networks, the leading provider of managed voice over IP communications in the Mid-Atlantic region, announced today the appointment of Michael Avis as its Executive Vice President and Controller.
A graduate of Mary Washington University, Mr. Avis comes to iCore from Global Telecom & Technology, where he was Vice President of Financial Operations and Administration. There, Mr. Avis helped grow the company from a private firm with $3Million in Revenues to a $65Million public global telecommunications in 7 years. Prior to working at GTT, Mr. Avis worked in other telecommunications companies like Winstar and MCI.
During the last four years, iCore has emerged as one of the fastest-growing communications providers in the nation. As the company grows, so too does the need for efficient processes and seamless communication between departments. Mr. Avis plans on using his extensive experience in financial modeling, vendor negotiation, and intra-departmental integration to help iCore better service its over 20,000 users. iCore's CEO, Stephen G. Canton states, "We are excited to have someone with Mike's experience and vision join our team. He truly understands what it takes for a company to successfully grow in the telecommunications space and I'm looking forward to seeing his skills enhance our operation."
As companies increasingly turn to technology in order to cut costs and simplify their operations as a consequence of the slow economy, Mr. Avis will play a major role in helping iCore to expand its reach and penetration in current and future markets. He is very familiar with the Greater Washington Region and has also worked on a national and international level.
When asked why he came to iCore, Mr. Avis states, "I've been in telecom for over a decade and I have never seen a company with such an entrepreneurial spirit and technology. I hope to play an important role in transforming iCore's financial processes and controls so they can fall in line with the sophisticated service and technology the company offers its clients."
