Brandon Kenney

Brandon has been a part of the TTx organization for the last 10 years.

As his responsibilities grew, he saw the future of telephony in VoIP and was instrumental in the commencement of the ShoreTel partnership. Brandon currently serves the organization as the Chief Operating Officer which has responsibilities in Sales Management and Business Operations along with casting the vision for the future of TTx.

His ideal Saturday would be spent with his family - breakfast with his girls, date night with his college girlfriend turned wife, and golf with his dad... unless he was camping in the woods with the guys.
