PGi, a provider of virtual meetings for over 20 years, announced that Boland T. Jones, PGi founder, chairman and CEO, received a Bronze Best in Biz Award for Executive of the Year and David Guthrie, Chief Technology Officer, received Gold for Technology Executive of the Year.
According to a release, these honors mark the third Executive of the Year award that each honoree has won this year.
Jones and Guthrie were recognized for their vision and leadership in repositioning PGi to focus on cloud-based virtual meeting applications. The 2011 launch of iMeet and GlobalMeet , led by Jones and spearheaded by Guthrie's technical expertise, positioned PGi as a collaboration software products company, building on its decades of experience as a global communications services provider.
iMeet is PGi's cloud-based collaboration solution that lets people meet face-to-face online from anywhere on any device. iMeet was designed to drive more personal connections in virtual meetings, and it is commonly used for recruiting interviews, sales presentations, corporate training, team meetings and more. GlobalMeet was designed to be the easiest to use, most friendly web conferencing product on the market, with a simple-to-navigate user interface, scalability for up to 125 users and easy access from the desktop, web, tablets or mobile devices.
"We are honored by this recognition from so many prominent analysts and journalists from across the industries of business and technology," said Jones. "It has been an exciting year of innovation and growth for PGi, and we take pride in the acknowledgment of our continued focus on creating products that help businesses meet and collaborate in more enjoyable and productive ways."
