Channel veteran Jeremy Butt has been drafted in by Mitel to head up its EMEA operations.
The move follows the completion of Mitel's acquisition of former rival ShoreTel. Butt reports to Todd Abbott, Mitel Executive Vice President of Global Sales.
As SVP of EMEA Butt will draw on experience gained in previous international roles at Avaya and most recently Westcon Group where he was Executive Vice President responsible for the distributor's EMEA business.
Previous roles include stints at Symbol Technologies and Cisco Systems.
Abbott commented: "Jeremy has been working for many years with customers in the region on every kind of technology deployment. There is no one better able to help them understand what it takes to modernise existing communications and chart a course to digital transformation."
Butt added: "Customers know where they want to take their business. Whether it's a growing company, mid- or large-sized enterprise, they see tremendous opportunity to leverage communications solutions and advanced business applications to achieve a competitive advantage."
