Ciaran joins from Snom UK where he was responsible for UK sales. He has significant experience in Voice over IP (VoIP) and UC Distribution as a result of having held several other sales related positions.

“I am delighted to be at SIPHON, to continue building on the substantial growth in its UC Distribution business through the compelling proposition that we offer our channel partners. Our continued alignment with emerging and disruptive technologies means that we offer genuine value added services as a technology-focused distributor” said Bolger.

“Joining SIPHON is an exciting opportunity to build on the initial work that’s already been completed to bring Microsoft Lync 2013 (and soon, Skype for Business) solutions into the SIPHON portfolio. By formally establishing a Microsoft practice for the mid-market, SIPHON is able to make a unique offering to an often under-served market segment” said Fragale. “SIPHON has carved out a holistic approach to working with its partners, which involves the assessment, design, delivery and support of solutions that incorporate Microsoft UC technologies. My role will see this approach extended to include all Microsoft UC solutions”.
