Mitel CEO Rich McBee to Deliver Keynote Address at ITEXPO

OTTAWA, Jan. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)

Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW) president and CEO Richard McBee will deliver a keynote address at ITEXPO in Miami next week where he will share his thoughts on the current state of Unified Communications (UC), where he believes the industry and technology is headed, and what's next for Mitel.

"Transformational technologies like cloud communications are changing the game and streamlining how we connect, collaborate and help our customers drive success, but as an industry we are still at the starting line of what UC has to offer," said McBee. "The challenge now is to replace the technical complexity with a simple, seamless and universal user experience. The industry will have to come together in new and unanticipated ways to make that happen."

Mitel has emerged as a global leader in unified communications and as the fastest growing cloud communications provider in the world. A recognized leader in the UC industry, Mitel's business phones, conferencing and collaboration software and contact center solutions power more than 2 billion business connections each day, including 33 million cloud connections.

ITEXPO 2015 will be at the Miami Beach Convention Center from January 27 - 30, 2015. McBee's keynote presentation will be on Wednesday, January 28 at 9 am ET in room B217.

Mitel's Vice President of System Engineering Josh Haslett will also take to the stage for two sessions. On Tuesday, January 27 he'll be part of a panel discussion at 2 pm on UC hot trends and what to do to make it work better. He'll discuss what Unified Communications really means as part of a panel on Thursday, January 29 at 12:30 pm.
