CULVER CITY, Calif., January 16, 2024 — PacketFabric, a leading Network as a Service (NaaS) innovator and a Digital Alpha Advisors, LLC portfolio company, today announced Joe Oligny has been named the company’s Chief Commercial Officer. Oligny joined PacketFabric in 2017, directing its sales operations and sales architecture departments, and was most recently Senior Vice President of Customer and Commercial Operations. He will join the executive team and report directly to Vincent English, Chief Executive Officer at PacketFabric.
“I’m excited for Joe to be elevated into the executive team,” said English. “He has decades of industry experience driving growth with innovative and customer-centric programs at network service providers and data center operators. But most importantly, he’s done it for PacketFabric’s customers for years. He’s the right person to lead our commercial organization into the next stage of the company’s growth journey.”
Oligny has nearly 30 years of experience in the telecommunications, networking, and data center industries. At GTT Communications, he was pivotal in the company’s transition from VNO to a global Tier 1 IP network. As the Chief Technical Officer at Revelation Network, Oligny led the company’s expansion into Europe. At Exodus Communications, he co-created the first Smart Hands service, now a common data center offering.
As Chief Commercial Officer, Oligny will lead the company’s go-to-market strategy, integrating sales, sales engineering, product management, marketing, and customer success.
“I’m honored to take on this new leadership role as PacketFabric aims to accelerate growth and capture more of the NaaS market,” Oligny said. “The industry is still emergent, but maturing quickly, and more and more customers expect to be able to order and turn up network services for their hybrid cloud and multi-cloud infrastructure on-demand and at the push of a button. The rise of artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and other data-intensive technologies is testing the reliability and resiliency of enterprise networks like never before.
