Leadership is ultimately responsible for a company’s success or failure. Leadership is tasked with crafting a roadmap to build upon for long-term profitability and bottom line success. Trailblazer or team builder, the right leadership can make all the difference.

Nextiva, one of the fastest growing cloud communications providers in the world, announced Phil Steitz to its leadership team. The industry veteran brings over 30 years of experience to serve Nextiva well as its first Chief Technology Officer (CTO), with the firm’s development, engineering, architecture, and over technology strategy comprising his responsibilities.

“We are thrilled to welcome Phil as the newest member of our leadership team,” said Tomas Gorny. “With his track record in technology leadership roles, including his tenure as the first CTO of American Express and chairman of the Apache Software Foundation, Steitz will elevate Nextiva’s technical organization, guiding us towards our goal: to democratize innovation and share breakthrough technologies, thus helping our customers realize their vision for the future.”

There are a number of reasons why Steitz is an exemplary candidate for the role, but his ties with The Apache Software Foundation as chairman and lengthy track record speak for themselves. Steitz is an ideal fit to further the cloud communications innovation efforts.

“I am very excited to join the team at Nextiva,” said Steitz. “We have an opportunity to do something really significant here. It is rare to have this combination of leadership vision, talent and market opportunity. I look forward to helping realize Nextiva’s product vision and advancing Nextiva’s customer communications and relationship management.”

Shaping the future of communications is no small task. Nextiva exists on the precipice of the next generation of solutions, and only time will tell what image Steitz paints.
