Gerling joined the company in 2009 as Managing Director of snom France, after more than a dozen years in leadership roles in telecommunications channel sales, marketing and business development at global companies.

As CSO, Gerling will be responsible for expanding snom’s market presence and leading its growth in all its core markets, along with Schmitt-Fumian. He will build on snom’s strong foundation as a leading developer of standards-based IP phones and communications devices for the business market. snom has a comprehensive lineup of SIP-based business phones and Microsoft Lync Qualified phones, and is one of the most successful European IP developers.
“I am excited about the opportunity to work with an executive team that understands the importance of building a world-class sales organization within this fast growing market,” said Gerling. “I want to further snom’s reputation of being a great company to do business with, where our customers and partners succeed with our leading edge, innovative products and world class support” said Gerling.
Founded in 1996, snom technology AG develops and manufactures VoIP telephones and related equipment based on the IETF open standard, SIP (Session Initiation Protocol). Recognized for its high-quality, customizable and cost-effective business phones, snom is also differentiated by the company’s history in the VoIP industry and its dedication to high security standards. All of snom’s products are designed to be fully interoperable with leading communications equipment vendors. snom customers and partners benefit from the interoperability and flexibility that snom telephones offer, including plug-and-play integration and universal compatibility with standards-based SIP VoIP platforms, applications or services.
