CAMARILLO, Calif., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Providea Conferencing, LLC one of the nation's leading video conferencing, audio visual and professional services integrators announced the promotion of Todd Luttinger to CEO from his current role as President which he has held since December of 2008 when Providea acquired Videre Conferencing, Inc. Providea Founder Tom Bailey will continue to serve the Company in his new role as Vice Chairman of the Board and maintain an integral role in the Company's ongoing strategic initiatives.
"Todd has earned tremendous respect throughout our industry from our partners such as Tandberg, Polycom and LifeSize, our thousands of customers and the entire Providea organization. This new role is a natural progression in the integration of Videre and Providea Conferencing which began in late 2008 and continued throughout 2009 where we experienced double-digit growth despite the uncertain economic environment. Todd has done an outstanding job as President in guiding our team which ranks among the absolute best in this industry and I look forward to working side-by-side with him in 2010 and beyond as we continue to lead the way in delivering high quality, innovative products and professional services," said Mr. Bailey.
"The successful integration of Providea and Videre exceeded all of our expectations this past year and validated our vision about the added value we could bring to the customers of both companies. The strong partnership that Tom and I developed during the transition was a key component of our success, and I look forward to this continuing in the coming years as together we lead Providea Conferencing in what we believe to be the most exciting time in our industry's history," said Mr. Luttinger.
Since the late 1980's Mr. Luttinger has been a leading sales executive within the video conferencing industry working in both the manufacturer and reseller/integrator environments. In 2002 he co-founded Boston-based Videre Conferencing, Inc. which grew to be a market leader. Mr. Bailey founded Providea, Inc. in 1999 creating a unique model heretofore not seen in the industry with a strong emphasis on professional services wrapped around system solutions. Providea quickly grew to be one of the dominant companies in this space and the merger of Providea and Videre has created one of the most successful and truly nationwide organizations in the video conferencing arena.
Providea Conferencing's headquarters remain in their new state-of-the-art facility in Camarillo, CA with east coast operations based out of the Boston, MA area in the former Videre Conferencing offices.
