Seaborn Networks Announces Leadership Changes

Submarine fiber optic cable company Seaborn Networks is making changes to its leadership team. The company announced it has appointed David Zimmer as Seaborn’s Chief Sales Officer. In his new role, Zimmer will be responsible for all of Seaborn’s direct sales, channel strategies and inside sales. He is also being added to Seaborn’s board of directors. Previously, Zimmer served as Senior Vice President – Carrier Services Business Unit for Earthlink.

In addition to Zimmer’s new role, Jim Olson of Seaborn has been appointed as Vice President, Corporate Development. In this role, Jim will focus on Seaborn’s portfolio of new-build opportunities, including ARBR (Argentina to Brazil; RFS H1 2019), SABR (South Africa – Brazil; RFS H1 2020), and Seabras-1 branches for Virginia Beach, Miami, USVI/BVI, Fortaleza and Brazil South.

“We are very pleased to add Dave to the Seaborn executive team,” Larry Schwartz, Chairman & CEO of Seaborn said. “His expertise is an invaluable resource to lead the continued growth of our Sales organization. Dave brings with him well established and secure relationships with major telecom service providers, hyper-scalers and large enterprises. And he has a stellar track record of leading strong sales organizations. In addition, Jim Olson fills a critical role driving our ever-growing portfolio of new-build projects that feed into Seabras-1; his experience in new-build system sales and wholesale carrier sales provides the ideal background for our corporate development initiatives. Both of these new appointments are critical building blocks as Seaborn continues to ramp up its Sales organization.”
