US-based provider of internet and online services, EarthLink has appointed Chris Roy its executive vice president of business services.

In his new role, Roy will oversee EarthLink’s wholesale initiatives and will launch the company’s Business Services division.

“Chris has managed and developed wholesale partnerships across technologies, companies, and continents,” said Glenn Goad, CEO at EarthLink.

“As a company that relies on trusted partnerships and the ability to wholesale leading technologies, Chris’ knowledge and experience will be valuable as EarthLink continues to expand in geographies and technologies. Chris will now take the learnings of EarthLink’s past two years of delivering high-speed internet to consumers and make that product available to small businesses across the country.”

Announced earlier this week, Roy stepped down from his 20-year tenure with AT&T, as confirmed via his LinkedIn post. His most recent role was that of vice president – global wholesale solutions and partner exchange.

“I’m thrilled to join EarthLink, which I believe is in an exceptional position to expand upon the customer-centric strategies that have led to its historical success,” said Roy. “

As we’ve been reminded this year, connectivity is the lifeblood of small business and EarthLink is in a unique position to serve those needs. I’m honoured to be able to contribute to EarthLink’s extremely bright future and look forward to continued long-term growth.”
