Matt Collier

Senior Vice President, Corporate Development

A corporate development “hunter” who aims to build strong, lasting business relationships to strengthen Lifesize and its offerings.

For Matt, there is nothing more important than building lasting relationships with partners that are mutually beneficial and help strengthen Lifesize

Throughout his career, Matt has established key strategic partnerships, lead the creation and launch of new data collaboration and IP voice service offerings and headed sales teams. He has also been influential in driving the mission of the IMTC, UCI Forum and other consortia who focus on technology and service interoperability

Matt joined Lifesize as Senior Vice President of Corporate Development, where he succeeded in developing our largest technology partnerships with organizations such as AT&T, Dell, Microsoft, Google, Alcatel/Lucent, CDW, CSC, TI, and Broadcom, to name a few

Before moving to Lifesize, Matt was Senior Vice President of Voice Application Services at Level 3 Communications. Matt joined Level 3 when they acquired Telverse Communications, the company he had founded and where he served as Chairman/CEO. Telverse offered the first nationally available IP Centrex Cloud Service in North America. Matt’s other video conferencing experience includes stints as Vice President of Business Development & OEM Alliances at Polycom, Vice President of Sales and Business Development at ViaVideo, Director of Advanced Conferencing Services at MCI (now Verizon) and Manager Corporate Development at PictureTel

In addition, Matt has served as Board of Director, IMTC since 1995 and was a past President.

Matt was also the past President of the UCI Forum whom merged with the IMTC in 2014

When he isn’t working to spread the word about Lifesize with the powerhouses of the tech industry, Matt can be found in his favorite vacation spot—Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. In his role at MCI and his work with data collaboration services in the 1990’s, Matt was named to the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels by Kentucky’s then governor, Brerenton C. Jones

Matt’s number one goal is to create outstanding partner relationships with each and every partner. From the moment someone first becomes aware of our brand to the moment of purchase and beyond, Matt is always looking for the best way to engage our partners to solve the most pressing business and technical challenges
