SinglePipe, a provider of voice, data and application services, announced today that it has restructured its management team, which included the appointment of Jeff Carr as the company’s new CEO.

Carr, who has served as SinglePipe’s COO since last year, took over the CEO duties from Matt Phillips. Phillips, who joined SinglePipe at its inception three years ago, will move to the position of vice chairman of corporate development.

“Jeff [Carr] brings proven business acumen to the leadership team, and we are confident that he will leverage his technology and business experience to accelerate the company’s growth,” said SinglePipe Executive Chairman George Tronsrue. “Further, we are grateful for Matt’s contributions in establishing the company as a premier provider of services for mid-tier cable operators. We are pleased that he will continue with the company to further its development focusing on strategic partnerships and potential acquisitions in this space.”

Prior to joining SinglePipe, Carr was a partner in Accenture’s Global Technology Consulting practice. Before that he was COO of ZoomTown, an ISP subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell.

SinglePipe also announced that Cynthia Carpenter joined its executive team as president and COO. Carpenter’s duties include maintaining responsibility for sales, marketing, product management and customer operations.

Prior to SinglePipe, carpenter was founder and president of Wheelhouse Strategies, a marketing consultancy targeting venture-backed start-up technology companies. 

Before founding the firm, she was vice president of business operations and marketing for Level 3 Communications.  In addition, Carpenter has worked at Cablevision, High Speed Access Corp., Time Warner Cable and Starz Encore Group in a variety of leadership positions.

SinglePipe said the changes to its executive team prepared it for a planned market and product expansion on the heels of a recent round of funding for the company.
