Indialantic, FL—August 26, 2015
FracTEL, (www.fractel.net), the pioneering provider of next-generation, cloud-based telecommunications systems, today announced that Mike Wilbur, a telecom industry veteran with extensive experience at public, private, and startup companies, has been appointed to the position of Senior Vice President, Finance and Operations.
Wilbur was previously Corporate VP of Finance for Bright House Networks (BHN), the seventh largest cable operator in the US with more than 2.4M subscribers and $4B in revenue, where he developed and directed the back office and operations for BHN’s competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) business that grew to 1M customers in less than 5 years. Prior to that, he was instrumental in launching the Road Runner high-speed internet service for Time Warner Cable, overseeing acquisition of more than 750K new subscribers in less than 3 years, and closing on $425M in joint venture funding in support of the rollout of Video on Demand services for the network.
“I am tremendously excited about the potential of FracTEL’s Integrated Communications services and its feature-based Cloud PBX system,” said Wilbur. “The technology is years ahead of the market and represents greater growth potential than anything in my experience. In addition, FracTEL’s enterprise-level scalability, reliability, security, and savings are unmatched.”
The hiring comes on the heels of FracTEL’s recent announcement that it received a broad patent covering a core technology that is fundamental to the company’s singular ability for hyperscale deployment of cloud-based business PBX services, and providing customers the ability to easily develop custom, business-transformative “Tele-apps” through the rapid integration of its telecommunications platform with other IT systems.
“We are extremely excited to have Mike on the FracTEL team,” said Michael Crown, President and Founder. “His extensive experience in managing the growth at Bright House and Time Warner is exactly what we need as we embark on our own aggressive customer acquisition strategy.”
FracTEL is the pioneering provider of next-generation “Integrated Communications” systems that are transforming businesses by offering an unprecedented full integration of telecommunications with other information technologies. Its patented, feature-based Cloud PBX architecture also delivers unmatched reliability, scalability, security, and savings. These capabilities are coupled with their Intelligent Communications Desktop (ICD) that provides immediate access on any device, from anywhere, at any time.
