Verizon Business has appointed Eric Spadafora as the new VP and General Manager (GM) of BlueJeans by Verizon.
This also marks the one-year anniversary of Verizon’s acquisition of Blue Jeans.
“Eric is poised to take us to even greater milestones,” said Tami Erwin, EVP and CEO of Verizon Business. “As employees make their way back into the office, we believe there’s an opportunity for BlueJeans to lead the market transformation around the new, hybrid ways we will work, delivering new and innovative use cases across the enterprise and society at large.”
“Video conferencing and remote collaboration has quickly become essential to the way we conduct business, and BlueJeans is transforming the way we work and live,” said Spadafora.
“I look forward to working with the team to drive the expansion of the BlueJeans product portfolio to support these emerging use cases across industries.”
Spadafora succeeds former BlueJeans CEO, Quentin Gallivan, who recently retired. He will report into Global Enterprise, Verizon Business, led by Massimo Peselli.
Eric joined Verizon through the acquisition of MCI Communications, one of the largest long-distance telecommunications providers in the United States at the time. He most recently served as the Vice President of Business Sales, leading over 1,500 talented professionals delivering innovative technology solutions to business customers.
As the VP and GM of BlueJeans, he will be responsible for ramping up the business markets team and driving innovation, growth and revenue for the business.
