News : Joe Hamblin Joins Altigen to Lead its Microsoft Teams Business Unit

#contactcenterworld, @altigen

Milpitas, CA, USA, Sept 8, 2020 -- Altigen Communications, Inc. (OTCQB:ATGN), a Silicon Valley-based Microsoft ISV and Cloud Solutions provider, announced that Joe Hamblin has joined Altigen's executive management team as Vice President & General Manager of Altigen's Microsoft Teams business unit. A long-time industry executive with extensive experience in communications, cloud and Microsoft technologies, Hamblin will provide strategic direction, product vision and day to day management of Altigen's newly formed Microsoft Teams business unit. The company also announced that David Tang, Altigen's Chief Operations Officer is retiring from the company.

Mr. Hamblin joins Altigen following the completion of the merger between T-Mobile and Sprint, where he most recently served as Vice President - IT Enterprise Services. During his more than 30 years at Sprint, Hamblin has consistently been at the forefront of driving business process improvements and cost reductions through the use of new and often cutting-edge technologies. Amassing a broad base of experience, Hamblin has most recently been responsible for Sprint's IT infrastructure, cloud services and end user experience solutions. Hamblin also managed the rollout of one of the world's largest Skype for Business deployments, and subsequently drove the migration of that platform to Microsoft Teams. 

"Creating teams that are motivated, collaborative and enjoy delivering powerful solutions that enable organizations to achieve their goals is what energizes and motivates me", said Hamblin. "I'm excited to be joining Altigen and implement these same principles to drive the success of their Microsoft Teams business. Working alongside Jerry Fleming and the Altigen management team will allow me to leverage the skills and expertise I've acquired over the years to help take the company to the next level. Successful companies must continually reinvent themselves as technologies and business needs change, and the table is set for Altigen to do just that."

According to Jerry Fleming, Altigen's President & CEO, "Having worked with Joe as an Altigen customer for over ten years I've had the opportunity to work closely with him not only with respect to Altigen's Microsoft solutions, but also to collaborate and share ideas on the overall Unified Communications market. Joe offers a fantastic perspective on where the market is going, how enterprises benefit from UC technology and how vendors can capitalize on the market opportunity. Joe's vision and leadership skills are exactly what we need to drive our new Teams business unit."

"Regarding David Tang's decision to retire from Altigen and pursue new endeavors, I'm sorry to see David leave but also understand given his sizeable talents. During his nearly 10 years at Altigen David was instrumental in driving our SIP communications business, our hosted PBX business, and the launch of our Microsoft Teams business. Fortunately, David developed a strong group of front-line managers who will continue to execute on the plan. Moreover, Altigen has contracted with David to provide technology consulting services on an as needed basis going forward."

David Tang commented that, "It's been a personally and professionally rewarding experience working to help Altigen transition to become a Cloud company over the past 10 years. I truly believe the company is in a great position to capitalize on the growing opportunities in cloud communications, particularly with respect to Microsoft Teams. Altigen's comprehensive suite of solutions and services, designed to extend and enhance the value of Teams Phone System, are well positioned to monetize the amazing growth in Microsoft Teams. While the time has come for me to depart Altigen and pursue new ventures, the company is in good hands and I'm rooting for its continued success. As both a friend of Altigen and a shareholder, I am committed to ensure a smooth transition and will continue to support the company and provide consultation on an as needed basis."
