Voxware, a leading supplier of software applications for voice-driven warehousing operations, announced that Keith Phillips has been appointed to the position of President and CEO.

“The Voxware board is pleased to have Keith Phillips lead the Company through an exciting growth period,” said Joseph Allegra, Chairman of Voxware’s Board. “His breadth of experience and depth of knowledge in enterprise software companies makes him extraordinarily qualified to lead the largest independent voice software vendor serving the logistics market.”

“Voxware has a very robust suite of voice driven software applications, an enviable list of blue chip customers, and a tremendously talented and dedicated team of people,” said Keith Phillips. “Market adoption is accelerating at a rapid pace, as companies realize productivity improvements, cost reductions, and improved customer service through the deployment of voice-directed work solutions. With our proven track record of delivering quantifiable business value and technology leadership, Voxware is well-positioned for rapid growth.”

Prior to Voxware, Phillips held executive level positions with InfoMentis, a sales and marketing performance improvement consulting firm focused on the software industry based in Atlanta GA. He also served as the EVP of Global Operations for Air2Web, a mobile software applications provider in Atlanta driving triple digit growth for this early stage company. Prior to Air2Web, Keith spent 9 years in sales, marketing, operational and executive level positions with Infinium Software driving consistent year over year double digit growth, a successful IPO and revenues exceeding $120 million. In his final role at Infinium as General Manager of Infinium’s $100 Million e-Business Unit, he managed an organization of 550+ employees and led strategic initiatives, which directly resulted in significant growth in revenue and market share.
