Alianza has named Clark Peterson to its board of directors. Peterson brings more than 30 years of experience with telecommunications organizations, as well as expertise in unified communications as a service (UCaaS) and communications platform as a service (CPaaS) solutions.

Most recently, Peterson served as the president and then chief evangelist at Vonage Business. Peterson came to Vonage through that company's acquisition of Telesphere, where he served as CEO for eight years. Peterson serves as the chairman of the Cloud Communications Alliance, an industry association dedicated to the growth of the cloud communications industry.

"Alianza's cloud voice platform is a game-changer for communications service providers looking to modernize their legacy and VoIP 1.0 networks with a modern, API-driven, cloud-sourced solution," said Peterson. "Alianza is extending the CPaaS solution beyond the enterprise and into communications service providers in a very exciting way. This is a tremendous opportunity, and with shifting market dynamics and aging legacy platforms, this is the right time for service providers to rethink and rearchitect delivery of unified communications and voice."

"Clark is an accomplished technology leader, and I deeply respect the valuable perspective he brings to our executive team and board of directors," said Brian Beutler, CEO and founder of Alianza. "He is ideally suited to help our company as we invest in extending market leadership and accelerating innovation."
