Wain Kellum has joined business Voice over Internet Protocol services provider Vocalocity as its new CEO. He comes to the Atlanta-based firm from Omnilink Systems, a provider of location-based service (LBS) monitoring solutions, where he has served as CEO since 2007.
Kellum has more than 25 years of experience leading fast-growth technology companies. Prior to joining Omnilink Systems, Kellum led a variety of technology companies through various stages of growth and exit. Kellum started, grew, and eventually sold Extreme Logic to Hewlett Packard. After Extreme Logic, he joined nuBridges as CEO. Early in his career, Kellum worked as a business strategist for Dun & Bradstreet Software and a manufacturing consultant for Ernst & Young. He started his career with assignments in both software development and field sales for Management Science America, Inc. (MSA).
"Wain brings an ideal blend of leadership, technology, and sales experience that we need to continue to drive our company forward," said Boris Jerkunica, chairman and co-founder of Vocalocity. "I am looking forward to working closely with Wain over the next few years as we aggressively scale the range and reach of our small business VoIP (http://www.vocalocity.com/) services."
“Vocalocity has a unique and distinct value proposition and there is a tremendous upside in accelerating our business model of bringing VoIP communications to the small business market,” Kellum said. “There is also a nearly unlimited potential in helping small businesses take advantage of additional capabilities of the cloud computing phenomenon by extending our core offerings.”
Kellum earned his bachelor of science degree in business administration with honors from the University of South Carolina and an MBA from Georgia State University. He also completed the Advanced Management Program (AMP) at Harvard Business School.
