The Godfather of UC
The history of UC is comprised of a tumultuous series of events—ones that have led to the world being fully-connected, digitally driven, and poised for an incredible future of possibilities ahead.
To explore the history and future of UC, we go to the source: the Godfather of UC, Mr. Michael Tessler, Managing Partner at True North Advisory and co-founder of BroadSoft.
Michael co-founded and led BroadSoft as CEO from its early start-up days to becoming the global market leader in cloud communications. Recognized as a pioneer in this industry, Michael grew the organization to almost 2,000 employees, serving customers in 80+ countries.
Michael’s focus on service provider partners and their end-customers enabled BroadSoft to become the cloud provider of choice for the largest and most successful service providers in the world, which led to the acquisition by Cisco in 2018.
