PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Nov 2, 2012) - Alteva, a leading cloud-based Unified Communications (UC) solution provider and subsidiary of Warwick Valley Telephone Company (NASDAQ: WWVY), referred to as WVT Communications Group, today announced that its Chief Sales Officer Louis Hayner will join executives from BrightTALK, Intacct and Aryaka at the 2012 Cloud Channel Summit in Mountain View, CA, Monday, November 5th on a panel from 3:15-3:55 pm. The panel is titled, "Market Opportunities to Expand Cloud Channel Relationships," highlighting examples of unique business benefits, challenges and opportunities created with channel partners.

Senior executives from leading cloud solution providers, channel companies, industry associations and trade publications will participate in roundtable discussions reviewing today's critical business challenges and exciting new market opportunities at the second annual Cloud Channel Summit. Drawing over 200 senior channel management and business development executives, the single-day, peer-to-peer executive forum and networking event will focus on how companies can create profitable channel relationships in the cloud marketplace.

"In terms of new opportunities created with channel partners, it's the channel partner who ensures that the end-user learns about, becomes interested in, and sees the possibilities of cloud-based communications. The best thing about using the cloud in business is optimization of mission-critical technologies, efficiency, up-time and productivity," said Hayner.

"Businesses of all sizes gain without the additional costs and resources of private corporate technology. I look forward to sharing channel success stories as we are proud to support channel partners representing next-generation solutions providers like Alteva, educating and influencing innovative business communications solutions."

Hayner is a recognized champion of the channel partner sales model. Under his leadership, the sales channel at Alteva has grown substantially in the past five years, culminating in the August 2011 acquisition by WVT Communications and becoming the ninth largest hosted IP telephony and UC provider, according to Frost and Sullivan. Hayner spearheaded the launch of Alteva's Wholesale and Channel Partner programs, while helping increase the company's revenue by 62% within its first year.
