UC expert brings innovative point-of-view to leading business technology event
Norwalk, CT – January 21, 2015 – TMC today announced that Mitel’s President and Chief Executive Officer Richard McBee will deliver a keynote address at ITEXPO Miami 2015, held January 27-30, 2015, at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida. ITEXPO is the business technology event that brings together IT professionals and experts to explore the latest technology and trends in M2M, SDN, cloud, VoIP, WebRTC, unified communications (UC) and much more. Mitel’s keynote presentation will be on Wednesday, January 28, at 9:00 am.
Mitel is a global leader of unified communications, helping organizations connect, collaborate and take care of their customers.

Mitel’s business communications experts serve more than 60 million users in more than 100 countries with a network or more than 2,500 channel partners.
“Unified communications has matured and is starting to change the game for many businesses, streamlining how we connect, collaborate and help our customers. The challenge now is to take away the complexity for users and make UC highly intuitive. Ease-of-use wins the game to help our customers finally take full advantage of the many rich features available,” said McBee.
McBee has more than 25 years of deep telecommunications experience as the President and CEO of Mitel and through his prior role as president of the Communications and Enterprise Group of Danaher Corporation. In his keynote, McBee will discuss how unified communications is emerging as a key technology in creating a competitive advantage, by boosting productivity, sparking innovation and enabling better customer experiences. While UC offers rich features, the new challenge focuses on usability and simplifying how end users leverage the technology. It represents a huge opportunity for UC to become a leading technology for nearly every business.
“ITEXPO’s conference program is filled with rich educational content for the entire business technology community, but we are especially excited to learn from Mitel’s UC expertise during this keynote,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman. “The UC marketplace continues to evolve as new standards and technologies are introduced.
