MIDDLETOWN, R.I., April 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Towerstream Corporation (Nasdaq:TWER), a Fixed Wireless Fiber Alternative provider, announced the opening of a second sales center location in Southern Florida, one of the fastest growing areas of the country. The Company has initially hired two sales managers and nine account executives, and plans to increase the number of account executives to approximately twenty by the end of the year.
"South Florida has become a hub for telecommunication companies and call centers, which gives Towerstream access to a talent pool with an impressive level of experience and success in the industry," stated Matthew Tooker, Vice President of Sales. "Our recently launched service offering of 100 Mbps of bandwidth for $699 per month continues to garner traction and we believe that our new sales team will help drive that growth higher over the balance of 2015."
"Talented sales professionals are always hard to find and we are excited to welcome our new employees to the Towerstream organization," noted Joseph Hernon, Chief Financial Officer. "The cost of opening our new sales office was relatively modest but has significantly strengthened our best-of-class sales and marketing organization."
