In this new position, Sullivan will be responsible for the strategic direction of MetTel's product and service portfolio as well as advising clients on government policy changes at a pivotal time in the industry where communications firms are increasingly morphing into technology solution providers to meet the needs of clients. Advances such as 5G speed, software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN), the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing require mastery of IT development and integration skills. Meanwhile, industry consolidation of cable, media, IT and telecommunications firms is redefining what it means to be a 'phone company.' This mercurial, shifting landscape requires in-depth knowledge and vigilant monitoring of client requirements and government regulations.
Sullivan spent over 20 years in executive positions at Verizon in operations, IT, sales, marketing, and channel strategy. There he helped improve business results while managing product development for the company's wholesale Data Services portfolio. Sullivan previously served as Director of Systems & Infrastructure at Bell Atlantic and Director of Resale Services with NYNEX.
