We’d like you all to help us welcome Rusty Newton to Digium’s Asterisk development and community support team!
Rusty has been with Digium for over five years, starting in the Technical Support department and then moving to a sales position where he assisted customers with Asterisk and Switchvox solutions for their business needs. Prior to joining Digium, he spent more than five years in the telecom industry, installing, configuring and maintaining PBXs. A couple of weeks ago, he moved into a new role (for him and for Digium), Community Support Manager.
In this role he’ll be the primary person responsible for ensuring that Digium’s community services are providing what the community members need, that the systems are operating properly, and that issues and questions are getting the attention they deserve. He’ll be working closely with our Community Director, especially for events like AstriCon and others. He works directly with the software development team at Digium, which will allow him to focus almost exclusively on technical issues and discussions.
We’re quite excited that he has taken on this role and we expect that you will soon see the benefits of his activities across the community!
