LIBERTY LAKE, Wash., July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Telect, a global leader in data center and telecom network infrastructure equipment manufacturing, headquartered in Liberty Lake, Washington, announces the promotion of Richard Denenny to Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Product Development.
Denenny was hired as Telect's Vice President of Product and New Market Development in the fall of 2013. "Richard has shown exceptional leadership and developed a strong team chemistry between Sales, Marketing, and Product Development," said Wayne Williams, Telect President and CEO.
