I joined Polycom in Q4 2011 and manage the Microsoft business as the Executive Director of the Microsoft Alliance. Having spent 16+ years previous to my Polycom role, at Microsoft, I know my way around Redmond reasonably well. My last 5 years I was responsible for building the Lync field sales organization so I’ve got a lot of familiarity with the product and their go-to-market strategies and tactics. I’m super passionate about the UC space and believe that video communication and collaboration will fundamentally transform the way we work and how business gets done. That’s why I came to Polycom – to participate in delivering on that vision. I’m married, have 2 adult children and enjoy golf, hunting, fishing and boating in my spare time.
