Jeff Carr has been appointed CEO of VoIP provider SinglePipe as part of a strategic restructuring to support a market and product expansion.
Matt Phillips, who had been CEO, shifts to vice chairman of corporate development for the Kentucky-based managed services provider, while Cynthia Carpenter has been named as president and COO.
Carr, who joined SinglePipe in 2008 as COO, was a partner in Accenture’s Global Technology Consulting practice.
Priot to that he was COO of ZoomTown, a Cincinnati Bell unit that provides Internet and data services to consumers and businesses.
George Tronsrue, SinglePipe’s executive chairman, said he was confident Carr would accelerate the company’s growth.
As COO, Carpenter has responsibility for sales, marketing, product management and customer operations. Before this, she was founder and president of Wheelhouse Strategies, a strategic marketing consultancy targeting venture-backed startup technology companies.
Before that she had marketing and operations positions at Level 3 Communications, Cablevision Systems, High Speed Access Corp., Time Warner Cable and Starz Encore Group.
In April, SinglePipe raised USD $5.1 million in equity funding, led by existing investor Chrysalis Ventures and also involving Meritus Ventures and the Kentucky Science and Technology Corp.
