Telax Welcomes New VP of Channel Sales, Sam Sharkawy
New sales leader for Telax Hosted Call Center hails from Metaswitch
“Not only does Sam bring a career’s worth of experience in telecom to the table, he also brings a deep knowledge of the carrier environment, particularly in the case of Metaswitch,”
Mr. Sharkawy is an engineer and holds a Master’s degree in Engineering from Queen’s University. He is also a member of the Professional Engineers of Ontario. Prior to leading inside sales for Metaswitch, he worked as a Sales Engineer for Tekelec and Lucent Technologies and also spent a number of years with IBM Network Services.
“My main motivation for joining Telax was the people. I’ve known the VP Operations, Taras Kapanaiko, for some time and he’s incredibly customer focussed. This is a great team,” explained Sharkawy about his recent move to Telax. “The other motivating factor was technology that we have here at Telax. Cloud computing is becoming a major part of the ecosystem for telecom and information services and I look forward to being part of that change.”
One of Sam’s first challenges will be to spearhead Telax’s presence at the upcoming Metaswitch Forum. In addition to being a telecom sales specialist, Sam also plays a mean blues guitar. As part of the Telax Hosted Call Center team, he lives and works in Toronto, Ontario.
