Industry Veteran to Drive Growth of Channel Program for Voice Services Company

CHICAGO – July 30, 2019 Peerless Network, a leading-edge provider of telecommunications services and a global disruptor in the telecom industry delivering the highest quality voice solutions for enterprise and wholesale customers worldwide, announces today the appointment of Ryan Patterson as Vice President of Channel Sales. Drawing upon more than 20 years of sales management and leadership experience, Patterson is responsible for further strengthening Peerless Network’s growing national channel program by recruiting new Master and Direct agents and helping those businesses leverage the company’s unique cutting-edge portfolio of high-quality voice products and services.  

Peerless Network has experienced rapid growth on a global scale over the past few months, from the company’s international expansion to the U.K. to the introduction of the Peerless Portal, the company’s automated provisioning platform where agents can easily and manage SIP trunking channels and telephone numbers from one system and from their own customer’s premises with visibility to real-time traffic stats. As a result of customer demand, the company is continuing to grow partnerships and add products to the portal, including the recently launched Peerless Cloud PBX, a UCaaS voice services management system, and ANImate, a full-featured customizable customer portal and API. 

“I’m thrilled to join Peerless Network and help drive its premier national channel partner program, delivering superior, scalable, high-quality voice solutions to the agent community,” stated Patterson. “This is an exciting time of global growth at Peerless Network and I’m eager to collaborate with more agent partners and connect them to our company’s customized, innovative products and services so that they can build their business with greater simplicity, visibility and success.” 

Prior to joining Peerless Network, Patterson served as Vice President of Sales for First Communications with responsibility for the Direct and Indirect sales teams as well as the Wholesale Channel. He joined First Communications in 1998 as a Sales Manager and has held various leadership positions from the Director of Enterprise Sales, to the VP of Agent Sales. Patterson also has experience in sales leadership at other organizations, including Sprint and WorldCom. He graduated from Indiana University.

“Peerless Network is excited to welcome Ryan to our leadership team,” said Rick Knight, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Peerless Network. “His expertise and leadership will be invaluable to grow our channel agent self-provisioning products and services worldwide with his technical savvy and customer-first approach.”
