Cox taps Bye to lead business wholesale group

Cox Business has named Jeremy Bye vice president of wholesale and national accounts. Bye will oversee all wholesale sales, sales operations, and technical support functions. He also will be responsible for growing and managing the base of national account customers purchasing retail services from Cox on a market-wide basis.

Bye also will be expected to maintain Cox Business’ current momentum. Cox Business wholesale revenues grew approximately 30 percent in 2011 and represent more than $100 million of Cox Business’ $1 billion total annual revenue stream. “Bye’s leadership is expected to generate consistent, aggressive double-digit growth to help Cox Business double its total revenue in six years,” the company said in a statement.

Bye has led the network and Cox Business operations teams in the company’s Virginia market since 2009. He originally joined Cox’s New England system in 2002, where he led carrier access and service delivery operations.

“Wholesale services represent aggressive growth opportunities within Cox Business, as carriers seek reliable local network connectivity and upgrade and expand wireless networks to accommodate explosive consumer data usage,” said Phil Meeks, senior vice president, Cox Business. “Jeremy’s 21 years of leadership and operational experience will help ensure the proper assessment, implementation and ongoing service delivery for these top tier customers.”

Cox Business provides voice, data and video services for more than 260,000 small and regional businesses, including healthcare providers, K-12 and higher education, financial institutions, and federal, state and local government organizations. The organization also serves most of the top-tier wireless and wireline telecommunications carriers in the U.S. through its wholesale division.
