Infovista, the global leader in network lifecycle automation (NLA), has taken a significant step in strengthening its leadership team with the appointment of David Tulis as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO). Reporting directly to Rick Hamilton, Deputy CEO, Tulis's role will encompass the overseeing of Infovista’s customer-facing organization, including sales and operations, alliances and partnerships, and professional services.

With an impressive career spanning more than 27 years in the telecom industry, Tulis’s expertise will be instrumental in guiding Infovista's global sales teams across various regions, including the Americas, EMEA, and Asia-Pacific. He joins the company from Ciena – Blue Planet, where he served as Vice President of Global Sales and demonstrated exceptional leadership in driving sales strategies and consistent business growth.

Tulis's new role will also include the fostering of strong partnerships with major telecom ecosystem players, such as Accenture (umlaut), AWS, Ericsson, Gigamon, Google Cloud, iBwave, Rakuten Symphony, and VMware.

David Tulis expressed his enthusiasm for the role, stating: “The market dynamics are shifting rapidly, and CSPs are looking for partners that will allow them to drive their networks further while identifying and leveraging new economic and environmental efficiencies. Right now, they all have the same goals; to monetize the investments that they’ve put up against their infrastructure development and 5G deployments, and drive more value out of the network while reducing their operational cost structures. This puts Infovista, with our diverse and rich software portfolio, in a unique position to create successful outcomes for our customers. I am excited to be joining Infovista to bring our solutions to market in a deliberate and focused manner in partnership with our clients and partner ecosystem."

Rick Hamilton, Deputy CEO at Infovista, also shared his thoughts on the appointment: “I’m delighted to welcome David to the Infovista team. With his relentless focus on customer success and proven track record in leading a global sales organization, David brings not just formidable experience in working with customers and partners to drive shared success, but he is grounded in the industry and understands the pressures and opportunities that our CSP customers face today and in the future. The combination of Infovista’s award-winning technology and solutions with David’s customer insight and leadership is compelling, and one from which I know our customers and partners will benefit.”

David Tulis's career has been marked by significant roles, including sales and solution engineering leadership positions at Amdocs, CSG Systems, and IQNavigator, before his most recent position at Ciena – Blue Planet.

His appointment to Infovista is a strategic move that signifies the company's commitment to achieving higher growth and delivering value to its customers. His vast knowledge, customer-first mindset, and a collaborative approach to partnerships align well with Infovista’s mission and are sure to drive the company towards greater success in a rapidly evolving telecom landscape.
