Stein has commended Papes' experience in sales and marketing at large global corporations such as Westcon, IBM and Unify.

"His global sales leadership experience and broad industry expertise make him an ideal addition to our team as we work to expand our offerings and establish even greater scale across the globe," Stein says.

Papes comes from a number of different telecommunications and data center roles, including as executive vice president for Unify, formerly Siemens Networking Systems. Prior to that role, he worked with Westcon group as senior vice president of global cloud and data center services.

He has also held a range of other senior leadership positions across his 27-year career at IBM, including vice president of global cloud services sales and vice president of global telecommunications industry sales.

Papes will fill the gap left by Matt Miszewski, after Miszewski departed in August.
