Patton Names Leocadio Regional Director for France and Iberica
Roland Leocadio is now responsible for business development and revenue growth in the region’s expanding economy.
In his role as Regional Sales Director for France, Spain and Portugal, Mr. Leocadio will apply his 30 years of Telecom market experience in business development and sales management to drive continued revenue growth by expanding Patton’s business operations in the region.
Mr. Leocadio speaks four languages and holds an electrical engineering degree.
The appointment follows recent reports of expanding telecom investment in France (France’s telecom sector shows strong return to investment) as well as a healthy economic climate in Iberia (Market report: Iberia – Out of the storm).
Prior to Patton, Mr. Leocadio has held sales management positions at ECI Telecom, General Datacomm, Veraz Networks, Dialogic, and most recently with Epsilon Telecommunications group.
“It is an honor to join Patton, a long-time leader in VoIP network equipment,” Mr. Leocadio said. “With the announced phase-out of legacy PSTN/ISDN services in Western Europe, Patton is ideally positioned to help service providers and systems integrators deliver a smooth transition to all-IP for SMEs.
Throughout the migration phase, Patton products enable full compatibility between old PBX systems and new UC platforms. In addition, Patton’s cloud-provisioning system eases deployment, inventory and maintenance for SIP telephony service providers,” Leocadio added.
According to a recent report from export.gov, DSL remains the prominent form of broadband connection in France. In connection with that market segment, Mr. Leocadio shares his vision for Patton’s portfolio of network-connectivity solutions:
“Not to be forgotten are Patton’s connectivity products that are available to facilitate the deployment of IP-based solutions such as video-surveillance, wireless access points (WAPs), HVAC controls, and more—using state of the art PoE and xDSL technologies. France and Iberica are heavily investing in these areas.”
Conducting business operations from Patton-Inalp offices in Switzerland, Mr. Leocadio can be reached by email, phone (+41 31 985 25 60) and LinkedIn.
Last month, InsightsSuccess Magazine recognized Patton as a top-Ten UC solutions provider for the current year.
