UJET Continues to Grow C-Suite with the Addition of Tom Puorro as Chief Business Officer
Seasoned Poly and Cisco Executive Joins Rapidly Growing, Disruptive Contact Center Team to Accelerate and Strengthen Strategic Relationships
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF (BUSINESS WIRE)- October 27, 2021 – UJET, Inc., the world’s first and only CCaaS 3.0 cloud contact center, today announced the continued expansion of its executive leadership team with the appointment of Tom Puorro as Chief Business Officer (CBO). In his role as CBO, Puorro will spearhead UJET’s global partnerships and alliances, helping to further UJET’s position as the world’s most disruptive, advanced and fastest-growing cloud contact center.
Puorro brings more than 25 years of experience in Telecoms, Unified Communications (UC), and Contact Center industries to UJET. Prior to joining UJET, Puorro served as Executive Vice President and General Manager of Products at Poly, leading the global development of solutions for the modern workplace. He also served previously as Vice President and General Manager of the Cisco Unified Communications Technology Group which included Cisco Contact Center.
“The combination of UJET’s next-generation technology and the team that they’ve built has made them both a valued partner and a formidable player in the contact center industry,” said Tom Goodmanson, President and CEO at Calabrio. “Tom Puorro is extremely well-respected in our space, known especially for driving synergies and growth through mutually beneficial partnerships, so we’re excited to work with him to continue developing and expanding Calabrio’s partnership with UJET.”
Puorro joins the UJET leadership team as the company experiences explosive growth, significantly outpacing the market’s projected 20+% year over year growth through 2024 (based on number of seats), according to DMG Consulting LLC’s 2020 – 2021 Cloud-Based Contact Center Infrastructure Product and Market Report.
“UJET is one of just a handful of newer, more innovative companies that are really disrupting and modernizing CX in ways that the more established players haven’t been able to,” said Dave Michels, Principal Analyst and Founder of TalkingPointz. “Tom’s experience, visibility, and relationships in the market, along with a track record of successful, profitable technology partnerships will be an incredible asset to UJET, as it continues to grow awareness and consideration for its solutions.”
“The cloud contact center space is experiencing a level of demand and growth that we haven’t seen since IP Telephony was introduced more than two decades ago,” said Puorro. He continued, “UJET is uniquely positioned to capitalize on that growth both because of the innovation that they’re bringing to CX, and the unprecedented security, scalability, and reliability they’ve achieved – all core requirements for Enterprise cloud adoption that have remained unmet until now. I couldn’t be more excited to work with this team and our partners to bring these capabilities to market.”
Along with the addition of Puorro, earlier this year, UJET added Kristin King to its leadership team as Vice President of Customer Success. King joined UJET after a 21 year tenure at Windstream Communications where she served in key leadership roles in both Sales and Customer Success.
UJET is the world’s first and only cloud contact center platform for smartphone era CX. By modernizing digital and in-app experiences, UJET unifies the enterprise brand experience across sales, marketing, and support, eliminating the frustration of channel switching between voice, digital, and self-service for consumers.
