When it comes to growing a dynamic and innovative company, the recipe for success lies in the value of the technology and in the talent of the leadership. And for that reason, I am pleased to welcome Mike Gregoire, chairman, president and CEO of Taleo Corporation, to our board of directors. You can read the complete press release, but I want to take a moment to acknowledge the value that someone like Mike brings to ShoreTel.
With his track record at Taleo, and long list of achievements as a former executive vice president at PeopleSoft and executive director at EDS, Mike is truly the voice of success. Throughout his career so far, he has extensive experience working with companies of different sizes and turning opportunities and challenges into triumphs - all of which make him a perfect fit for ShoreTel.
ShoreTel is at an amazing point in its development, as we continue our steady growth by offering industry-changing innovations and delighting our customers, and as we rapidly mature into a heavyweight brand in the unified communications industry. Our goal is to continue on this trajectory despite the challenging economy, and we’re looking to some of the best and brightest business minds to help us accomplish this task. Mike certainly fits that description, and I’m thrilled to welcome him aboard.
