August 04, 2020, Denver, CO – Eventus Solutions Group, a leading Customer Experience (CX) strategy, consulting, managed solutions, and contact center technology company, today announced the addition of CX industry veteran Karl Holzthum as Senior Vice President.
Holzthum joins the senior leadership team with a focus on vertical industry solutions, partner ecosystem expansion, and support of the company’s accelerating growth in key strategic areas including cloud, big data analytics, and open technology integration.
“We’ve known and worked with Karl for many years,” said Eventus CEO Milos Djokovic, “and given his experience, track record, business network, and clear understanding of our offering, culture, and market potential, he is a great fit for Eventus.”
Before joining Eventus, he contributed in re-positioning Skyhook, a Liberty Broadband company in the area of Data Insights that provides unique contextual “time and place” global location data for the marketing, safety, and IoT.
After several years at NexxPhase, a leader in Open Customer Engagement platforms, Holzthum lead the sale of that company which now sits inside Verint, and before that served at Echopass, before the successful sale of that pure cloud contact center business to Genesys in 2013.
Holzthum lead Worldwide Channels and Alliances for Genesys for eight years, following on his early career posts at Stream Global Services, Teletech and Sun Microsystem where he grew the Communications and Media Regions from 10M to over 500M in annual revenue. He holds a B.S. degree in Finance from Susquehanna University.
“I’ve long been impressed with the people at Eventus, the quality of their offerings, the innovations they continue to invest in, and the stellar Client base they have already established,” Holzthum said. “It is truly an honor to join Milos and his team especially as the business is growing so rapidly as digital transformation, accelerated by recent events including the dramatic rise of cloud-based platforms and services, opens new doors across every offering at the company – strategy and consulting, managed services and software innovation including their unique IntelligenceHub™ big data analytics platform. Eventus is extremely well-positioned for even more growth in this challenging and exciting new decade.”

It can be hard to fathom a life without customer service in it. Before remote desktop support, live chat and other contact center solutions, there were complex phone trees and outsourced call centers and before that there were buggy IVR systems and telephone switchboards connecting you to the store you purchased the product from.
The past few decades have seen the business world sway multiple times between call center outsourcing and internal call center operations.
