Vonage announced April 12 that Dennis Fois, group president of the company’s Applications Group, will leave his post to become chief executive officer of an unnamed private technology company.
Fois will remain at Vonage through April 30. The Holmdel-based business communications company said it has launched a global search to fill the position. Until that time, Vonage CEO Alan Masarek will assume interim leadership of the group.
Fois previously served as chief executive officer of NewVoiceMedia, a Cloud Contact Center-as-a-Service (CCaaS) provider that was acquired by Vonage in October 2018 for $350 million in cash.
“We acquired NewVoiceMedia to accelerate Vonage’s growth strategy and leadership position in cloud communications, strengthen our presence with global mid-market and enterprise clients, and deepen our integrations and key go-to-market relationships with CRM providers,” Masarek said in a prepared statement. “Dennis has been a great partner and helped lead a smooth integration of NewVoiceMedia into Vonage, including the creation of the Applications Group and its go-to-market strategy.”
“We are grateful for the work he’s done to help position Vonage for continued success,” Masarek added.
