We are pleased to announce that Trish Howard has joined the company as Verizon Enterprise Sales. In this role, Howard will support sales strategy for enterprise markets and drive Verizon services and solutions.
“Trish is an award-winning sales executive and brings a wealth of Verizon knowledge and enterprise business experience to eXemplify,” said Robert Hayes, eXemplify Group founder and CEO. “With more than 13 years at Verizon under her belt, she takes the level of expertise on our dedicated Verizon Enterprise team to another level.”
eXemplify was recently named to the Verizon Partner Program as a Platinum Member, the highest possible partnership level available. The partnership with Verizon adds new offerings to its Sales Partner Triangle, an eXemplify Group program and holistic business approach that helps telecom agents, VARs, and MSPs develop new IT skills and opportunities.
“It’s exciting to bring my Verizon background to one of the first dedicated Verizon Enterprise sales teams from a Master Agent,” Howard added. “eXemplify is the perfect complement of personal touch to the strength of Verizon.”
Howard has more than 25 years of telecommunications and IT experience. Prior to joining eXemplify Group, she was Senior Client Executive Channels for Verizon and provided advanced data services and solutions, including security, cloud, VoIP and MPLS, to enterprise accounts. Howard held other strategic positions focused on the enterprise at Verizon including Carrier Interconnect Planning & Routing, Account Executive, Strategic Account Manager, and Senior Marketing Manager. In addition to her work at Verizon, she’s also held roles at other major telecommunications organizations like GTE and MCI — both of which were later acquired by Verizon.
Howard holds an executive MBA from Baylor University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. She will be based at eXemplify Group’s headquarters in Dallas.
