Last year, Alan Masarek made news as he left Google to become Vonage’s new CEO.
Troubled VoIP provider SunRocket has ceased operations as of Tuesday, leaving a reported 200,000 customers without phone service. Customers were given no notice of the impending shutdown, which appears to be permanent. An e-mail sent to the website ConsumerAffairs.Com from SunRocket Executive Sonya Jefferson stated, "Unfortunately this email contains very bad news. We have just been informed that any and all last ditch efforts to keep operations running as well as a potential sale of the company have not gone through and that SunRocket will cease operations at COB today. As such, today is my last day and everyone else you may have worked with at SunRocket. Regarding outstanding and future invoices: Sherwood Partners out of Palo Alto will be handling the close down of all invoices, current and outstanding." Calls to SunRocket's corporate offices are simply met with a recording, stating, "We are no longer taking customer service or sales calls. Goodbye."
