Sean Sullivan Leaves Verizon, Joins MetTel to Lead Product Management

By Ken Briodagh January 11, 2017

According to a recent announcement, MetTel, a fast-growing communications solution provider for businesses, has tapped former Verizon sales and marketing leader Sean Sullivan as its new Vice President, Product Management & Regulatory Affairs.  

In this new position, Sullivan will be responsible for the strategic direction of MetTel’s product and service portfolio as well as advising clients on government policy changes at a pivotal time in the industry where communications firms are increasingly morphing into technology solution providers to meet the needs of clients. Advances such as 5G speed, software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN), the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing require mastery of IT development and integration skills. Meanwhile, industry consolidation of cable, media, IT and telecommunications firms is redefining what it means to be a 'phone company.' This mercurial, shifting landscape requires in-depth knowledge and vigilant monitoring of client requirements and government regulations.

“We continue to add savvy industry leaders such as Sean across product, sales, marketing, communications and technology,” said Marshall Aronow, CEO of MetTel. “We see unlimited opportunity for growth in a pro-business environment as enterprises recognize the surprising advantages MetTel affords in efficiency, integration and innovation.”

Sullivan spent more than 20 years in executive positions at Verizon in operations, IT, sales, marketing, and channel strategy. There, he helped improve business results while managing product development for the company's wholesale Data Services portfolio. Sullivan previously served as Director of Systems & Infrastructure at Bell Atlantic and Director of Resale Services with NYNEX.

“I've focused my career on improving business results and raising expectations for some of the largest companies in the communications industry,” said Sullivan. “I thought I'd seen it all but MetTel's unique, high touch integration model provides intrinsic business value that no one else can offer as more and more enterprise customers are discovering every day.”
