December 15, 2015—MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA.—Blue Jeans Network, a global leader in cloud-based video collaboration services, today announced the addition of Mike Mansbach to its leadership team in the newly created role of President. On the heels of their $76M funding round, Blue Jeans is gearing up for major expansion and continued product innovation, and Mansbach will be instrumental in the next phase of the company’s journey.
As an industry veteran, Mansbach has a demonstrated track record of driving results, delivering exceptional customer experiences and preparing companies for meteoric growth. He was most recently CEO of PunchTab which was acquired by Walmart in September of 2015. Prior to that, he was instrumental in growing Citrix Systems’ GoTo product line, including GoToMeeting. Under his leadership, Citrix focused on delivering great customer value and SaaS revenues grew from $40M to over $500M.
“Video communications is crossing the chasm. For a long time, the missing piece of the puzzle has been creating something the end user loves. Blue Jeans delivers that," said Mansbach. “We’ve built a platform that IT loves and now have the opportunity to complete the picture with a user experience the customer loves as well. With that goal in mind, we’re deeply committed to continually delighting our millions of users around the globe.”
“We are embarking on a new and exciting chapter at Blue Jeans. Mike shares our vision and understands the value of real-time video and the power it has to transform the culture of the enterprise,” said Krish Ramakrishnan, CEO of Blue Jeans. “We are thrilled to welcome him as part of the Blue Jeans family.”
With its unique portfolio of services for meetings, events, and experiences, Blue Jeans continues to provide tremendous value to its rapidly growing global customer. Today almost 5,000 organizations like Facebook, Sephora, Noble Energy, Red Hat, and The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania leverage nearly 1 billion minutes of video communications a year.
