Former AT&T Cloud Solutions exec jumps to a new cloud
ATLANTA — Red Book Connect, a global, cloud-based software solutions company serving the broader retail and restaurant industries, has appointed Arnab Sur as SVP of global sales, a previously unfilled position since the formation of the company in January 2013.
Sur was most recently the global sales VP for AT&T Cloud Solutions, where he increased revenues 300% after building and integrating an industry leading portfolio of cloud, applications and hosting services. Under Sur’s leadership, AT&T Cloud Solutions transformed from a US-based business to a global leader servicing a broad range of Fortune 500, Global 1000, small-to-medium (SMB) customers and several industry verticals. Throughout his career, Sur has managed large teams of direct, indirect and technical sales, and also brings software application expertise to his new role at Red Book Connect. Sur has also held senior sales positions at USInternetworking, Appshop and Quovera. He will be based in San Francisco.
"It’s a pleasure to welcome Arnab to the Red Book Connect family," said Larry Abramson, CEO of Red Book Connect. "We have created a portfolio of elegant cloud-based software solutions that are used by more than 128,000 businesses around the world.

I look forward to working with an extremely talented and energetic team to build the Red Book Connect business globally.”
Sur earned a master’s of science degree in manufacturing systems engineering from the University of Wisconsin, and a bachelor of technology degree in mechanical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai, India.
