While there’s much we can’t control, I’m proud to share that the Cloud5 family is stepping up in remarkable ways. For example, through our Cloud5 Gives initiative, our team members have donated more than $5,000 to Ukrainian relief efforts which the company is matching for a total of $10,000+ going directly to Ukrainians in need.
Additionally, this quarter we’ve made our leadership team more diverse and representative of the customers we serve. We promoted long-time employee Rupal Patel to the position of CFO. Rupal has been with the company for more than 20 years – working in finance and operations for our contact center division – and I’m thrilled that she’s agreed to step into this new role. We’ve also hired a new VP of Operational Excellence and Chief of Staff, Deittra Heritage, as well as a new VP of Marketing, Jamie Murphy.
Finally, to support hotels that are looking to make necessary investments in their properties, we’ve launched Cloud5 Flex, an OpEx financing model that makes it easier for properties to upgrade their HSIA networks and telecom systems without the traditional upfront investment, providing greater contract flexibility and financial options.
As we move into the second half of the year, our team will continue to work on the issues that are most critical to our customers – sourcing highly-sought equipment, developing cost-saving, revenue impacting solutions and continuing to provide best-in-class service. We’ve invested further in our managed IT services solutions and expanded into new contact center facilities to help support clients through what experts are calling “the worst recruiting climate in the industry’s history.” We look forward to what the rest of 2022 will bring, and we thank you for your continued support. For those of you attending HITEC in Orlando next month, stop by and see us at booth 2225 – hope to see you there!
