HOUSTON — InterActiveTel announced that industry veteran Jeff Bounds has joined the company as its new director of business development. Bounds will use his two decades of dealership experience to explore and develop new business relationships between InterActiveTel and manufacturers, large dealer groups and partner companies, according to the announcement.

Bounds comes to the position with more than 24 years of industry expertise, most recently as the national account director for Dominion Dealer Solutions. While at Dominion, Bounds drove aggressive revenue growth by creating and collaborating with key decision makers at the manufacturer level.
