Paget Alves, Chief Sales Officer at Sprint to Keynote ITEXPO in Miami, February 1, 2012

Keynote session will discuss future services for wireless technologies and the power of ingenuity in the business-to-business space

Norwalk, CT, January 18, 2012 — TMC announced that Paget Alves (News - Alert), chief sales officer at Sprint, will keynote ITEXPO, January 31 – February 3, 2012, at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida. Paget’s session will take place on Wednesday, February 1, at 3:30 PM, and will discuss the power of ingenuity in the business-to-business space and its influence on wireless technologies – both current and future.

As Chief Sales Officer at Sprint, Alves is responsible for sales and distribution across Sprint’s consumer and business markets. Prior to his current position, Alves was president of Sprint Business, responsible for all of Sprint's sales and marketing to enterprise, general business and public sector customers. The Sprint Business portfolio of services includes IP, international wireless and wireline and domestic 3G and 4G wireless. As part of his Sprint Business responsibilities, Alves also oversaw the development of strategic alliances for Sprint.

Prior to this role, Alves was the president of Sales and Distribution for Sprint Nextel.  Previously, he served as President of the South Region for Sprint, with responsibility for managing the P&L, all sales and distribution channels and local marketing programs in an 11-state region. In addition to his Sprint career, Alves has served as president and CEO of Internet telephony services provider PointOne Telecommunications. He was also president and COO of Centennial Communications. Alves began his career as an attorney with IBM (News - Alert) and holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University, and a Juris Doctor degree from Cornell Law School.

“Sprint is one of the leading forces in promoting 4G technologies, and the mobile Internet – and we’re all interested in hearing Sprint’s viewpoints on delivering mobile broadband Internet services, and enabling the mobile Internet, as opposed to the continuation of wireless as we’ve known it,” said Rich Tehrani (News - Alert), TMC CEO and Conference Chairman. “We’re thrilled that Paget is speaking at ITEXPO, and this session will be one of the clear highlights for the conference.”   

ITEXPO (News - Alert) is the world's largest and longest-running B-to-B communications and technology conference. The upcoming 25th iteration of the ITEXPO Conference features four tracks that cover issues and opportunities for both users and providers of today’s sophisticated communications solutions.

Collocated events at ITEXPO include: the 4G Wireless Evolution Conference; Asterisk World; Business Video Expo; Channel Vision Expo (CVx); Cloud Communications Summit; the HTML5 Summit; Mobile LatAm; M2M Evolution; the Mobile Enterprise Security Summit; MSPAlliance/MSPWorld; Startup Camp; the Super WiFi Summit; and the Synopsis Under IP Patents Telecom Sourcing Conference.
