The company is expanding its executive team to address the needs of its rapidly expanding customer base.
“Over the past four years, Greg has been instrumental in helping us set our strategy and grow our brand during a time of rapid customer base expansion,” said Paul Hammond, Virtual PBX’s president and CEO. “The company is ready for an expanded management team, and Greg has already been fulfilling much of the responsibility of a COO, so he was a natural choice for the position.”

Over the next few years, customers will have even more flexibility in how they handle and manage their phone calls.”
