Press Release Body:
Darren and his family will be relocating from Utah to join the Cheshire-based telecommunications company later in the year to take up the position of Chief Innovation Officer. He will play a key role in the company's aggressive expansion plans.
"Finding talented individuals with the depth of knowledge and experience in IP telephony which Darren possesses has presented a significant challenge over the last twelve months," said Zimo's Chief Operations Officer, Martyn King.
"We have several major software releases mapped out for the next 24 months and didn't anticipate having to cast our net quite so wide to resource their development. That said, Darren's appointment is an incredible coup for Zimo. My main challenge now is to contain the excitement of our CEO!" added King.
Darren will begin work alongside Martyn King and Zimo's Chief Technology Officer, Stuart Ford, on a number of key enterprise projects. He is keen to fuel the rapid expansion of the company's development team.
"It's a huge step for the family, but I was really impressed by Zimo's growth and particularly to learn more about the team's plans for the future. To join the UK's Service Provider of the Year in such a key role and at this point in the company's development is an opportunity which cannot be overlooked - even if it does mean upping sticks and moving my family 4,500 miles," said Darren.
Darren is leaving Interactive Communications Inc. where he worked as Director of Telephony to join Zimo. He has significant experience in developing unified messaging platforms, IVRs, calling card systems, conferencing facilities and many other call management applications and features. He is also a major open source community developer, contributing to a number of highly popular Asterisk modules. Darren's LinkedIn Profile is available at www.linkedin.com/in/dsessions.
