Vice President of Pruduct Management, Product Development and the General Manager of Mobile Services

As vice president, Brent Cobb is responsible for Cbeyond's service offerings, product management, new product development, and mobile business.

Cbeyond, Inc. is a managed services provider that delivers integrated packages of local and long-distance voice along with mobile and broadband Internet services to more than 27,000 small businesses in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles and San Diego.

Cbeyond offers more than 20 productivity-enhancing applications including BlackBerry®, voicemail, email, Web hosting, fax-to-email, data backup, file-sharing, and VPN. Cbeyond manages these services over a private, 100-percent Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) facilities-based network.

Previously, Cobb was the executive vice president of strategy and business development at SK-EarthLink, a joint venture between SK Telecom of South Korea and EarthLink.

He created the business case for the joint venture, helped secure $440 million of funding and established the venture in the United States.

Before joining SK-EarthLink, Cobb added marketing, sales, and operations to his role as vice president of EarthLink Wireless to become the group's general manager. This position involved the development and growth of EarthLink's Internet-enabled wireless device business through product and access partnerships with some of the leading companies in the wireless space including Verizon Wireless, Sprint PCS, Cingular, Sony, Motorola, Research In Motion, and Palm.

Cobb began working with EarthLink as a management consultant for Scott, Madden & Associates and later joined EarthLink's corporate strategy group.

He started his career at Westinghouse's Distribution and Control Business Unit where he drove marketing and sales programs for power distribution equipment and machine control devices.

He holds a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Clemson University and a master's degree in business, focusing on international finance, from the Goizueta Business School at Emory University.
