Broadvoice announces new Strategic Sales Leaders

Mike Gottwalt, a 15-year veteran of the channel, is Broadvoice's first Vice President of Strategic Relationships, a new role created as a liaison between Broadvoice and strategic partners, including national and regional master agencies and technology vendors.  Jason Shawgo, a 14-year UCaaS veteran, has joined the company as the company's Area Vice President - East Coast, and will oversee channel sales teams and strategies in the region. Nick Madsen, a direct and channel sales operations pro with 12 years of experience, has recently been promoted from his role as Regional Sales Manager to Area Vice President – West Coast, and will oversee channel sales teams and strategies in the region.

"Broadvoice has grown rapidly as a channel-first organization," said Kim McLachlan, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Broadvoice. "We have brought on proven channel leaders who can optimize the alignment between our resources and sales partners – master agents and subagents – so we can continue to grow revenues together."

Gottwalt joins Broadvoice after more than 12 years as Area Vice President of Sales for the Central Region at Telarus, a national master agency. He began his technology channel career as a telecom agent, where he spent four years as president of Web77Marketing. Gottwalt has a firsthand understanding of what channel partners need from their suppliers, a perspective he plans to leverage in his new role at Broadvoice.

"My new role is squarely focused on creating and strengthening relationships so that our partners trust in Broadvoice to help them transition their businesses from selling mostly commodity connectivity to adding high-value applications like UCaaS that drive revenue for partners."

Shawgo comes to Broadvoice from CenturyLink where he was Account Director of Unified Communications & Collaboration Services. Previously, Shawgo spent more than 13 years at West Corp., working his way up from Global Account Executive to Area Vice President of Sales in New Jersey.

"I am incredibly excited to join Broadvoice at such a remarkable time," said Shawgo. "In addition to expanding market presence, Broadvoice is keenly focused on operational excellence and actively improving the b-hive architecture – initiatives that will bring significant value to our partners and their clients." 

Madsen joined Broadvoice in November after more than a decade of experience in sales and operations. He came into the company as a Regional Sales Manager and was quickly identified to take on the new sales leadership role. Madsen most recently was Director of Sales or Central and West regions for StarLeaf.

"In the last few months I've met many of our partners, and it's refreshing to see how dedicated they are to Broadvoice," said Madsen. "They love the company, they love the culture, they love the people that work here. I'm excited to take on this role with this team."

3-2-1-Cookoff! Astronauts to bake cookies with new test oven

Apr 7, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...

NASA moves up 1st all-female spacewalk to fix power unit

Apr 7, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA has moved up the first all-female spacewalk to this week because of a power system failure at the International Space Station. Astronauts Christina Koch (cook) and Jessica Meir (mere) will now venture out Thursday or Friday, instead of next Monday. A battery power controller failed over the weekend, prompting the change. The women will replace the broken component, rather than install new batteries, which was their original job. Last week, astronauts conducted two spacewalks to replace old space station batteries. They have three more spacewalks to go to finish the battery work. A battery-swapping spacewalk...

Museum of the Bible quietly replaces questioned artifact

Apr 7, 2020

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Museum of the Bible in Washington quietly replaced an artifact purported to be one of a handful of miniature Bibles that a NASA astronaut carried to the moon in 1971 after an expert questioned its authenticity. The move follows an announcement last year that at least five of 16 Dead Sea Scroll fragments that had been on display at the museum were found to be apparent fakes. The museum replaced the original microfilm Bible with one that was donated by an Oklahoma woman who wrote a book about the Apollo Prayer League, which arranged for Apollo...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

Apr 7, 2020

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

Apr 7, 2020

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...
