Prior to joining RingCentral, Hughes was with Cisco for 16 years, where he led a global team responsible for establishing new routes and channels to market for Cisco’s cloud collaboration solution.
At Cisco, Hughes expanded his role from director of Sales for Australia and New Zealand to director of Sales for Asia Pacific, and ultimately to director of Global Sales.
Prior to Cisco, Hughes served for seven years as national sales manager Australia for the Siemens Hicom communications platform.
“With his knowledge of the Asia Pacific channel and his proven expertise in hiring the right talent, we’re confident that Peter will establish a strong and dynamic team of sales and technical experts to work with our customers both in Australia and across the region.”
“I’m excited to join the worldwide leader in cloud communications as there is an enormous opportunity in APAC, which is the fastest-growing cloud communications market globally,” Hughes said.
“RingCentral has been expanding its presence in Australia with strong channel partnerships. Together with the team, I look forward to empowering businesses with greater mobility, customer engagement tools, and team collaboration capabilities for enhanced productivity and ultimately business success.”
