For those who have not heard yet my last day with Sangoma Technologies will be April 30th. It’s been a long journey for me. In Jan 2015 Luke Duquaine, Bryan Walters, Philippe Lindheimer and I sold our company Schmooze and the FreePBX project to Sangoma after being involved in FreePBX since 2007.
We all stayed on with the company the last 4 years but as those that know me best, know I like to do new things and shake things up a lot. I feel the time has come for me to move on to new things and spread my wings again and go do a new startup for the 5th time in my career. It’s scary to leave the comfort of what you know and go into the world of the unknown but also intriguing and fun and I can not wait to see what my future holds.
I have enjoyed my time at Sangoma and feel I contributed a lot and helped see the company and FreePBX through a major growth and refocus. When I joined Sangoma they were about 12M and are now on target to exceed over 100 Million in sales this year and it’s been a pleasure being the COO of such a fast growing company and I learned so much in my professional life. I am going to miss the people who I have become such close friends the most through Sangoma and this awesome community and I wish everyone at Sangoma and FreePBX the best.
I am going to try and start posting more on Twitter so please feel free to follow me tonyclewis on Twitter.
