Leading Communications Service Provider 8×8 Welcomes Tim Bury as Vice President of Sales for EMEA
London — January 14, 2019 — Renovata & Company is pleased to announce Tim Bury’s appointment as vice president of sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at 8×8, Inc.
Headquartered in San Jose, California, 8×8 is a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of voice, video, chat, contact center and enterprise-class application programming interface (API) solutions. The company connects individuals and teams around the world so they can work faster and smarter. 8×8 solutions include embedded real-time business analytics and intelligence that provide business-critical insights across interactions and channels.
Bury joins 8×8 from Masergy Communications (backed by Berkshire Partners), a global provider of hybrid networking, managed security and cloud communications where he served as managing director for EMEA. Prior to his role at Masergy, Bury spent a decade at Forrester Research in a range of commercial roles, including regional sales director and global vice president of sales for EMEA.
From 8×8’s London office, Bury will be responsible for driving growth across the UK and EMEA regions—leading the entire organization of enterprise and mid-market sales, including EMEA sales operations.
“As more customers migrate to the cloud, 8×8 is in a great position to capitalize on its SaaS model to combine communication, collaboration, a contact center and analytics in a single, fully integrated platform,” says Lisa Morgan, principal at Renovata & Company. “Tim has the industry relationships and get-things-done attitude to develop new clients and migrate existing ones for the best business outcomes.”
