LONDON, UK -- RTX, the global voice, call centre and SMS exchange hub, today announced that it has appointed Alex Mashinsky as Global CEO of the company.

Mashinsky has proven his talents in business strategy, investment and technological innovation, backing winning trends within the telecoms industry, having founded companies including Transit Wireless in 2004 and Arbinet in 1996. As Global CEO, Alex will drive continual growth of RTXs voice and SMS carrier exchange business worldwide, building on the companys recent success in Europe, where it has just been recognised as the 11th fastest growing tech company in the UK, in the prestigious Sunday Times Tech Track 100.

Mashinsky will be pivotal in maintaining relations with RTX investors to help accelerate the expansion of RTXs global exchange platform. He has raised over 180 million in venture and private equity funds throughout his career, and has also served as Managing Partner of early stage venture capital firm, Governing Dynamics.

Considered to be one of pioneers of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology, Alex is a leader visionary of web-based exchanges, having authored over 50 patents relating to exchanges, VoIP, messaging and communication. They are used today by companies such as Facebook, Groupon, Skype, Twitter and Netflix. He has received numerous awards for innovation, including the prestigious 2000 Albert Einstein Technology medal and the Technology Foresight Award for Innovation.

Albert Mackey, CEO for EMEA at RTX said, I am delighted that Alex has chosen to join RTX as Global CEO, assisting and executing our growth strategy. His considerable experience and background in founding and growing successful telecoms businesses, makes him the ideal addition to the company. He brings the perfect combination of experience in carrier exchanges and technology venture funding, which will ensure that RTX continues to grow and innovate at a rapid rate. Alex will be pivotal in continuing and extending RTXs relationships with some of the worlds biggest carriers, allowing them to buy and sell with complete confidence of financial security.

Alex Mashinsky added, RTXs technology platform for providing the secure trading and settlement of telecoms services plays a critical role in enabling carriers to securely manage their worldwide voice and SMS traffic. I am excited to bring my experience from working and developing technology for internet exchanges, and am passionate about developing RTXs unique exchange model worldwide. I hope to expand RTXs investor relationships to ensure further investment and growth in the years to come.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial and often most challenging is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company Tribold from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
