Broadvox Gets New CEO in Bruce Chatterley

March 14, 2012

It's a big day for the crew at Broadvox (News - Alert) as they've just announced they'll be adding a new CEO to their ranks, and if you recognize the name Bruce Chatterley, then you know that Broadvox has some serious plans indeed.

TMC CEO Rich Tehrani (News - Alert) conducted an email interview with Broadvox's newest hire, and that in turn provided plenty of insight as to the future of Broadvox, which is now looking very bright as a result of their newest move. But for those of you not already familiar with the new CEO of Broadvox, Bruce Chatterley (News - Alert) has an impressive pedigree going into the top slot.

He was formerly the president of Business Markets at MegaPath, as well as the former CEO of Speakeasy. While you may not recognize MegaPath right off, Speakeasy is a much more recognizable name given that, under Chatterley's tenure, Speakeasy was sold to Best Buy (News - Alert) back in 2007 following a protracted period of growth.

Chatterley himself, meanwhile, is reportedly very excited to join in Broadvox's fight, and hopes to bring growth along with him. Andre Temnorod, current chairman of the Board (who will remain so even after Chatterley's entrance into the company), expressed a great deal of faith in in Chatterley, as well as hopes of further success.

And these hopes are hardly unfounded; considering that Chatterley has already done a solid job of sparking growth, first at MegaPath which became part of Speakeasy (News - Alert), and then at Speakeasy which became part of Best Buy, it's pretty safe to say that Chatterley can pull it off once again as he's already done the job twice. Considering that Broadvox, whose offerings tend toward customized, integrated managed VoIP communication solutions, which is in the ballpark of what Speakeasy offered, it's clear that Chatterley will be in his element and thus have the best chance of success.

Naturally, the economic picture will be working against Chatterley as it works against every company out there right now, but it's still a safe bet to say that, where lightning has already struck twice, you want to put a lightning rod there.
