Carousel Industries Strengthens Sales Team; Recruits Two Former British Telecom Sales Veterans for Leadership Positions

EXETER, RI -- (Marketwire) -- 06/13/12 -- Carousel Industries, a leader in voice, video data networking solutions, announced it has hired Mark Flood and Michael Barnett, two sales experts formerly of British Telecom, to lead inside sales and the New/Penn/Del sales region, respectively.

"Mark and Michael bring very strong sales leadership skills to the company and will play key roles in our continued success in the converged communications space," said James Marsh, senior vice president, Carousel Industries.

Mark Flood has joined Carousel as the vice president of inside sales, where he will drive the strategy and effectiveness of the company's inside sales initiatives. A seasoned professional who was most recently senior vice president of sales at BT Conferencing, Flood is already very familiar with Carousel's solutions and has a track record of managing large sales teams towards successful sales growth.

"Carousel is an industry leader with expertise and market recognition in the converged communications and collaboration space. I am very excited to be joining the company as it continues to grow and drive new technologies into the market," Flood said. "With an inside sales team that was recently expanded to 80 individuals, Carousel is well positioned to significantly increase its outreach and lead generation initiatives to keep up with industry demand."

With more than 20 years of sales and management experience in diverse roles, Flood has worked directly with Fortune 500 clients. In his role at BT Conferencing, Flood played a key role in driving the highly profitable business to over $500 million in annual revenue. Prior to that, Flood held senior executive and sales roles at Convergent Group, Cambridge Technology Partners, Keane Inc., United Engineers, and Southern New England Telephone Co.

Meanwhile, Michael Barnett has joined Carousel as its regional sales director for the New/Penn/Del region. Formerly the vice president of global account management at BT Conferencing where he managed numerous global accounts and drove more than $35 million of annual revenue, Barnett joins Carousel with a track record of proven sales and revenue growth.

"Carousel has consistently recognized new opportunities in the converged communications and data networking space," Barnett said. "I look forward to working with customers on the east coast and helping them to align their technology infrastructure with their business goals and objectives."

Prior to joining BT Telecom, Barnett was the vice president of sales and operations at Smack Apparel Inc. Before that, he worked in multiple roles at V-SPAN Inc., where he progressed to increasingly senior sales and customer relationship roles.
