423: Fuze – Enterprise Global Voice, Video, Messaging, and Collaboration
There’s a massive amount of opportunity in cloud-based enterprise communication – only about 5% of companies with 250 or more employees have moved communications to the cloud. Global Market Insights forecasts the unified communications market to reach $96 billion by 2023. Big tech players are scrambling to get their piece of the pie – Amazon announcing Chime, Microsoft introducing Teams, etc.
I invited Fuze CEO Colin Doherty onto the show to share his thoughts on why the unified communications (UC) market is so hot right now and how the company is poised to dramatically change the way people work. With so much buzz and polarization about remote and flexible work policies, Colin’s story on digital workplace disruption is particularly compelling.
Colin joined Fuze from DNS company Dyn where, as CEO, he led the company through its late 2016 acquisition by Oracle. Prior to Dyn, Colin served as CEO of software-defined networking (SDN) leader BTI Systems, which was acquired by Juniper Networks in January, 2016. Before BTI Systems, Colin spent five years as CEO of Arbor Networks, which he led through its sale to Danaher Corporation.
Colin also served as President and CEO of Mangrove Systems, a venture-backed startup in the carrier network segment. Before Mangrove, Colin spent more than 16 combined years at NMS Communications and Nortel Networks in senior sales management positions and managing global business units in Latin America, North America, and Europe for broadband and wireless technologies.
