“Fusion Connect’s award-winning client service is what differentiates the company from other managed service providers and is the key to creating new value for clients, partners, and investors,” Langford said. “The company is on the precipice of an exciting phase of growth and I’m eager to take Fusion Connect’s success to new levels.”

In her new role, Lisa Matthews will lead all areas of the company’s human resource functions, with a particular focus on people and corporate culture. Matthews is an accomplished, results-oriented leader with 25 years of global leadership experience in human resources across multiple industries, including technology and professional services.
