Exeter, Rhode Island, February 5, 2016NWN Carousel, a leader in communication and network technologies, professional and managed services, and cloud solutions, announced today that it has appointed Rich Montefusco as Vice President of Managed Services. In anticipation of market growth, new service-based consumption models and fast-moving, cloud-based innovations, Carousel has invested in Montefusco to drive new sales opportunities and lead Carousel’s Managed Services practice strategy.

“Information technology is transforming faster than ever before,” comments James Marsh, Chief Revenue Officer of NWN Carousel. “The fact that our customers can offload the ongoing service and support of a broad array of technologies allows them to get ahead of this rapid pace of change without overloading their own IT departments. IT teams can then shift their focus to more innovative projects. Our continued investment in the managed services space, including the appointment of Rich to his new position, is in direct response to the needs of our customers and reflects our ongoing commitment to this area.”
