Telarix appoints Marco Limena as CEO

07 September 2016 | Jason McGee-Abe


Marco Limena has been named as Telarix's new chief executive officer (CEO), succeeding Glen Kazerman, who steps down after ten years at the helm.

Limena has over two decades of leadership and experience to lead the wholesale provider for communication service providers (CSPs), with a community of over 4,000 carriers, into its next phase of innovative solutions for the telecom industry.

“Building on Telarix’s growth as a market leader in CSP billing for interconnect and settlement, I look forward to working with the entire Telarix team and with our customers to help service providers increase their revenues and extend their reach through our electronic information exchange,” said Marco Limena, CEO of Telarix.

He previously led HP’s network & service provider solutions business globally, served as president and CEO of VoIP communications software provider Sylantro Systems, and between June 2010 and December 2015 was a vice president in charge of driving growth of Microsoft’s B2B hosting and cloud business.

The Vista Equity Partners-owned Telarix attributed much of the company’s success to Kazerman, who had become CEO in April 2006. “We thank Glen for his leadership over the last ten years to bring increasing value to Telarix customers and establish a strong and growing business,” said Patrick Severson, lead director for Telarix’s board of directors and principal at Vista Equity Partners.

“Marco has a unique set of experiences and skills that will support Telarix’s continued growth and globalisation while maintaining its delivery of rapid innovation for customers. We look forward to partnering with Marco and the entire Telarix leadership team.”

Telarix was acquired by Vista Equity Partners in January 2016.
