Joseph Laezza
With over two decades of technology, strategy planning, executive management, and most importantly, real-life, in-the-trenches business experience, Joe Laezza’s view as it relates to collaboration technologies in the workplace is practical and, in some cases, different than some. Joe appreciates, and shares with listeners, that the rapid and radically changing dynamics in technology and generational users will continue to drive change in the way you rely on technology and services to operate your business and remain relevant. Technology and applications are for everyone, everyday. It is part of our lives and should be a critical component of how successful businesses operate.

Joe’s specific background consists of IT managed services and cloud services expertise, video and unified communications expertise, driving go-to-market strategies, strategic partnerships, and client relationship management; along with strong track record of driving results through operations and financial management, product, M&A and financing.

Currently, he is Senior Vice President of the Global Account Program at AVI-SPL, the largest audio-visual and unified communications system integrator in the world. Prior to AVI-SPL, Joe had a progressive executive management history in the technology and service provider industries including positions with Glowpoint, Inc as President and CEO, COO, and Head of Operations, and prior to that held key management positions with Con Edison Communications (from inception through acquisition), XO Communications (4 years), and AT&T (6 years).
