Yesterday, leading unified communications and collaboration software solutions provider, Mitel, announced that it has appointed Jeff Nolan as vice president of Channel Development for North America and Tom Lang as vice president of Canadian Sales. The appointments reinforce Mitel's 3+1 strategic plan introduced in 2011, which has caused the company to better align its sales organization with a stronger and more focused channel program.

"In the last 18 months, we've made great strides in North America to revamp and refocus our channel and sales program to better address emerging and existing customer needs," commented Phil Keenan, Mitel's executive vice president of North American Sales and Service. "With the appointments of Jeff Nolan and Tom Lang to our customer-facing management team, we are taking another strategic step forward to move our customers, channels and Mitel to the next level."

In his new role, Mr. Nolan will oversee strategic channel management, ongoing development of new channel partnerships, recruitment strategies, and all operational aspects of channel program delivery in the region. Mr. Nolan's most recent role at Mitel was as head of sales in Canada for six years, where he and his team established the company as the country's clear number-two business communications vendor with 25 percent market share for IP desktop extensions. Mr. Nolan also previously served as Mitel's regional sales director for the northeastern United States.

With over 20 years of industry experience, Mr. Lang comes to Mitel from Bell Canada where he most recently held the position of general manager, Bell Business Markets in Ontario, generating year-over-year business growth and expansion. During his tenure at Bell, he also held senior positions within Bell Gateways, the small medium business (NYSEARCA:SMB) market, as well as Professional and Consulting Services.
