Accedian Networks continues to strengthen as a world class sales organization


"Accedian continues to attract the industry’s top talent as we build a robust solutions and services culture across our network performance assurance..." Patrick Ostiguy, Founder, President & CEO, Accedian Networks

Following a banner year, Accedian Networks continues to gain strength as a world class sales organization to address solid demand for the company’s network performance assurance solutions. As mobile networks, data center connectivity and financial services networks continue to scale up, network performance is increasingly a differentiator, driving Accedian’s growth in all regions globally.

The company’s latest addition, Peter Newcombe, brings a heightened level of sales leadership and professional services expertise to the team covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Having a track record of driving exceptional growth over 30 years in the telecommunications industry, Peter is well positioned to advance Accedian solution sales into national and multinational Tier-1 service providers.

Most recently Peter lead the sales organisation at CIENA, covering direct and indirect business into Northern and Eastern Europe and entering into significant new contracts across the region, particularly in the UK, Netherlands, Nordics and Russia.

He joined CIENA as part of the acquisition of Nortel’s Optical and Ethernet business, where he was part of the divestiture team; Peter took a lead role in the highly successful integration of the business into CIENA.

Within Nortel, Peter worked in a number of sales and business development roles covering software based switching solutions, 2G/3G and 4G wireless technologies, optical and Ethernet solutions as well as related professional services.
