Industry Veteran to Head the Telecom Leader’s Sales Initiatives
SOUTHFIELD, Mich.—November 14, 2011—Leading national provider of integrated telecommunications solutions, BullsEye Telecom®, has named Tim Basa as vice president of sales. Basa has been appointed to lead the company’s national sales strategies, specifically focusing on Internet Protocol (IP) communications sales to small- and medium-sized businesses with both single and multiple locations.
Basa oversees all sales and marketing efforts for IP services including traditional voice, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Hosted IP PBX and cloud services through direct and indirect sales channels in strategic markets nationwide.
According to Bill Oberlin, chief executive officer, BullsEye Telecom Inc., “We view Tim as an important addition to our executive team. With his entrepreneurial spirit and his industry experience, he is a valuable asset who will no doubt lead us to significant growth in the IP marketplace.”
Speaking about his new role, Basa said, “BullsEye Telecom is a great success story for Michigan and nationally among telecommunications service providers. Its specialized product and service line up, coupled with operational efficiencies, have made it the trusted provider of hundreds of the biggest brands in the country. Its growth over the past decade has been phenomenal. I embrace the challenge to continue this tradition of achievement.”
According to Basa, Hosted IP communications and cloud services have come of age, making it possible for small- and medium-sized businesses to enjoy the sophisticated feature-functionality without the capital expense and the dedicated employee resources that are often required to manage phone, Internet, business continuity and security solutions.
“Our hosted or cloud-based services open doors to value-added capabilities such as mobility and unified communications,” Basa explained. Coupled with BullsEye Telecom’s specialized ability to deliver dedicated personal account management, consolidated billing and online business management tools, businesses can benefit from a single-source solution nationwide. “Whether they are a single- or multi-location business owner, we’re prepared to meet their needs today and grow with them,” added Basa.
