Dan Foster takes the helm of MegaPath's Business Markets division, replacing Bruce Chatterley

MegaPath is once again going through yet another management transition as Bruce Chatterley, the CEO of VoIP provider Speakeasy and President of MegaPath's Business Markets, is leaving the company.

Chatterley came to MegaPath after the service provider purchased the assets of the former Speakeasy and Covad in 2010 to bolster its VoIP capabilities to serve its managed services customers.  

Replacing Chatterley is MegaPath's own Dan Foster, who returned to the company after a brief departure. Foster earlier served as the service provider's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, overseeing the company's direct sales and partner initiatives until January 2011.

As the President of Business Markets, Foster's main task will be to expand the service provider's presence in the channel and key verticals, including healthcare and retail. In addition, Foster will be responsible for MegaPath's Business Markets P&L, meaning he will oversee all of the unit's functions, including enterprise and SMB sales, product development, product management, and marketing. 

Among the several product initiatives that Foster will likely build upon in 2011 will be its ongoing Ethernet over Copper drive, one that will take it into 15 markets by the end of 2011 and an additional 35 markets by the end of 2012 to serve both business customers and even other wholesale service provider customers.
