Enterprise Mobility Expert to Spearhead Company’s Expanding Wireless Portfolio
NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2012 — Metropolitan Telecommunications (MetTel) today announced the appointment of Max Silber as director of wireless services. Silber will play a key role in expanding the company’s wireless service offerings, which now include nation-wide voice and data plans, MiFi wireless hotspots and fixed wireless solutions over the nation’s top wireless networks.
Over the past 18 years, Silber has served in a variety of product, sales and business development positions with some of the world’s most innovative technology and telecommunications companies. Prior to joining MetTel, Silber served as senior vice president of business development for IDT Corporation where he led the company’s managed services and mobility business unit. He helped define the company’s product and sales strategy for the government, service provider and enterprise segments, and was instrumental in deploying its mobile strategy.
Prior to joining IDT, Silber was vice president of business development at Net2Phone Inc., and held similar management positions at other companies including seven years as head of sales and operations at Amtel, and country manager for Ecuador at GTE Spacenet, Inc.
“Max’s extensive experience in mobile security and expense management, combined with his understanding of the latest business mobility tools and applications, will bring great value to our MetTel clients,” said MetTel CEO Marshall Aronow. “He will lead the strategic expansion of our wireless services to include flexible, tiered voice, data and text plans, and consolidated wireless and landline billing, all at substantial savings over other national providers.”
MetTel combines the security of North America’s most trusted carriers with the convenience of using one provider with a single point-of-contact in 48 contiguous states, Hawaii and the District of Columbia. The company recently announced the ability to offer wireline services throughout Canada. MetTel’s centralized customer care structure ensures standardized processes and personal service regardless of product class or geography.
“The demand for mobile data is exploding and my goal is to help our clients optimize their wireless spending,” Silber said. “I am extremely impressed with MetTel’s commitment to customer service. Where else is each enterprise customer assigned a dedicated customer service representative and 24/7 support? MetTel’s personal service and suite of full service solutions are among the industry’s best kept secrets. We plan to bundle wireless and wireline solutions in packages that make sense for business.”
“We have been fortunate to attract several outstanding industry leaders to MetTel in the past few months,” Aronow added. “We are growing. We are delivering for clients. And we are breaking new ground with our service, our commitment, our portal and our technology.”
