Carmody joins Cbeyond with nearly two decades of IT marketing, product development and customer relations experience. Before joining Cbeyond, Carmody most recently served as the senior vice president of product management and business development at Internap, where he oversaw the company’s managed and cloud hosting, colocation and enterprise IP and CDN units. During his tenure, Carmody led Internap’s entry into the cloud marketplace via two cloud platforms.
Previously, Carmody was senior vice president of marketing, product and strategy at Broadlane. He also served as vice president of product development at Rackspace where he helped build its first official product team and standardized the go-to-market process.
“Companies of all sizes are looking for ways to take advantage of the latest technology without becoming experts in it,” said Carmody. “I saw an opportunity with Cbeyond to deliver that value to businesses in a manner that relieves the burden from their shoulders. Using Cbeyond’s enterprise-class network as the on-ramp, we can deliver services to customers and transition them to the cloud securely and cost-effectively.”
Carmody is the latest addition to the Company’s core leadership team, with Vice President of Cloud Engineering and Development Tim Myers, Vice President of Cloud Services Chris Ortbals and Vice President of Professional Services Matt Stevens joining Cbeyond in recent months.
“Paul Carmody has been at the forefront of technology innovation in his recent positions,” said Jim Geiger, president and chief executive officer of Cbeyond, Inc. “We’re confident in his ability to drive greater value for businesses looking for an ally to navigate today’s complex technology decisions.”
