Plantronics + Polycom. Now together as Poly Logo

Polycom CEO Peter Leav was challenged by one of our platinum ITSP partners - Nextiva CEO Tomas Gorny - to complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. This is a fundraising and awareness campaign for a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain. This campaign has taken social media by storm, and as of this morning, the ALS Association has raised $41.8 million in donations. In addition to the bucket of ice water, Polycom will donate to the ALS Association.

Polycom extends the challenge to 8x8 CEO Vik Verma, Aon’s newly appointed CIO John Bruno, and Polycom CMO Jim Kruger.

We also encourage our partners and customers to support this charitable cause—or one of their choice—by donating time or money. To learn more about ALS, visit the ALS Association website.




Corey Griffin, one of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge co-founders, unexpectedly passed away on Aug 16. We extend our condolences to Corey’s family and friends during this difficult time.
