by Craig Malloy, Vice Chairman of the LifeSize Supervisory Board
After 18 years and building two companies in the enterprise video communications space, effective immediately, I am stepping back as CEO of LifeSize. Colin Buechler, formerly senior vice president of sales and marketing, is our new CEO. Colin has been with us for nearly five years and has all of the experience and enthusiasm to lead LifeSize through its next phase of growth.
I will continue to stay involved at LifeSize in my new role as vice chairman of LifeSize’s supervisory board, actively advising company and product strategy.
The video industry is at another one of its inflection points, much like the transition to low-cost set-top boxes in 1998 and HD over IP networks, pioneered by LifeSize, in 2005. Like many other markets, this new transition will be about cloud services, mobility and virtualization, and LifeSize is in a great place to continue to be the leader as the new market unfolds.
I am very grateful to our customers, resellers, partners, investors, and Logitech for all of their incredible support over the years and what it has meant to our company, to me, and my family.
My nine years at LifeSize have been the best experience of my professional life. I am off to start another company, which I can only hope can come close to matching the amazing experiences and success we have created together.
