BlueJeans Announces a Trio of New Company-Enhancing Hires
BlueJeans onboards veterans from IBM, RingCentral and Polycom
BlueJeans, a meetings platform designed for the modern workplace, and one of the most innovative cloud platforms in the industry, recently announced some changes in its business hierarchy. The company has hired a selection of industry veterans from brands all the way from Webex, to Polycom, to support the next stage of their market growth strategy.
For instance, Matthew Collier will be coming to BlueJeans as SVP of Business Development, while Walt Weisner joins as Chief Customer Officer. George Mogannam, on the other hand, was just named Chief Revenue Officer for the company.
According to the CEO of BlueJeans, Quentin Gallivan, the brand has assembled a new and enhanced leadership team with the proven background knowledge required to help the organisation scale and take advantage of its $40 billion markets. Walt, George, and Matt, all come to BlueJeans with the skills and experience to lead transformational change in the spaces of customer success, sales, and business development.
Introducing the New Expertise
Weisner comes to BlueJeans as one of the most well-respected leaders in the customer success space. He’s been responsible for driving revenue and adoption in several high-growth markets and has helped to transform the customer success organisations for companies all the way from ShoreTel to RingCentral, and WebEx. Through a distinguished career in the industry, Weisner knows what it takes to delight and inspire customers towards stronger UC results.
Mogannam, on the other hand, has earned his reputation for successfully scaling global teams. He spent several years as a sales leader for IBM and has also led teams at Avid Technology, and Crossbeam systems. Mogannam is joining BlueJeans from Actiance, where he was acting as a senior vice president of global service and sales.
Finally, Collier has spent his career developing alliances and partnerships strategically for driving brand awareness and revenue. From his early days at Verizon, Collier concentrated on the collaboration and video market, then followed up his experience with a role as Vice President of development at Polycom. He also spent some time with the resale partners at Lifesize Communications, and with BlueJeans he’ll be working on product management, sales, marketing, and engineering to enhance partner relationships around the world.
A Strategic Upgrade to the Management Team
This sudden update to the management team came at the request of Quentin Gallivan, who stepped into the CEO role at BlueJeans during August 2017. Quentin came to the company while it was growing in size, diversity, and scope, and with his executive team, he’ll be looking for new and improved ways to accelerate partner and customer engagement.
According to Weisner, he, Matt, and George all feel confident about BlueJeans’ position, and their ability to take advantage of an exciting time of digital transformation in the UC industry. Weisner believes that BlueJeans are ready to take advantage of new strategic partnerships, innovation, and customer demand in the cloud-based world, and they will be on the cutting edge when it comes to transforming the way businesses communicate and collaborate.
