Joe Manuele, formerly a top cloud services executive at Avaya, is now overseeing a $1B communications operation for this global company.
Dimension Data, a global NTT subsidiary offering systems integration, IT outsourcing, and IT as a service, this week named Joe Manuele as Group Executive – Communications and, in so doing, put him in charge of a communications business that has annual revenue of more $1 billion and a double-digit growth pace. (Dimension Data itself has $8 billion in annual revenue with 28,000 employees and offices in 58 countries.)
Manuele, who had been vice president of global cloud services at Avaya, took over from Adam Foster, who is now Group Executive – Sports Practice, with a mandate to grow Dimension Data’s presence in sports analytics by leveraging the Tour de France platform it developed. In the past two years, Foster oversaw the alignment of the company’s collaboration, customer experience, and business-process-outsourcing portfolios.
