Palo Alto, CA, January 11, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- IVT, which transforms the reach and impact of companies’ communications with a user-friendly suite of rich media webcasting products, today expanded its presence in Silicon Valley with the opening of a new office in Palo Alto, CA. President and CEO Phillip Whalen will split his time between IVT’s new office and the company’s headquarters in Los Angeles. IVT also named IT sales veteran Mitchell Harper the company’s West Coast and Asia Director of Sales. Harper will focus on working with companies and partners in the Silicon Valley area and the rest of the Western region.
IVT is emerging as the preferred choice of companies looking to bring advanced webcasting and video capabilities in-house. IVT is already working with Fortune 1000 technology companies and other organizations that are increasingly using video to streamline and enhance their sales, marketing, customer service and employee communications. Many businesses have turned to IVT to upgrade their current webcasting programs with IVT’s industrial-strength webcasting software. Additionally, a growing number are working with IVT to introduce self-service video webcasting capabilities directly onto their employees’ desktops.
“IVT has seen a tremendous influx from technology companies that are rolling out video webcasting programs company-wide,” said Phillip Whalen, president and CEO, IVT. “We’re working with IBM, NEC, AT&T and many others to expand their webcasting programs by upgrading their media department solutions and simultaneously empowering their employees to create, share and track business content right from their own computers. This market is growing at a rapid pace and the opening of a major office in Palo Alto along with adding a seasoned professional of Mitchell’s caliber will enable IVT to continue to stay ahead of the competition and serve our technology clients.”
“I’m eager to work closely with Phillip again and tell the IVT story to businesses throughout the Valley. I believe strongly that many of these companies need to present themselves and their offerings in a fresh, new way; the rich media applications provided by the IVT product suite are exactly what they need to accomplish this ambitious goal,” said Mitchell Harper, West Coast director of sales for IVT. “The fact that IVT’s software enables anyone to put together video, screen demos, a PowerPoint deck and other elements to create a webcast or podcast appealed to me instantly. Given the feedback from the customers, partners and prospects that I’ve already spoken with, 2008 is going to be a tremendous year for all of us at IVT.”
Mitchell Harper has more than 20 years of sales, sales management and business development experience on the West Coast. A native of Silicon Valley, Harper has held various management and development positions at ShareData, Inc. and E*TRADE Group, Inc, where Harper worked with Phillip Whalen, as well as Zantaz, Inc. and Merrill Lynch & Company.
