The votes are in: RingCentral has a new president. David Berman

(Disclaimer: There wasn’t actually an election.)

We’re excited to announce that RingCentral has named as its president David Berman, effective this week. Before coming on board with us, David served as the president and CEO of emotion-analytics firm Affectiva and the president of worldwide sales and services at WebEx Communications.

Both Affectiva and WebEx are software-as-a-service companies, so David brings many years of expertise in the cloud services space.

“With his depth and breadth of knowledge on expanding into new and existing markets and developing innovative products,” RingCentral CEO Vlad Shmunis says, “David will enable us to take our company to the next level.”

David, for his part, said he’s excited to be coming on board as RingCentral disrupts office communications the same way WebEx disrupted desktop computing.

“It’s a great time to be joining RingCentral, which is about the size WebEx was when I joined back in the day,” he notes. “At WebEx, I was a part of transformation in the way people worked and collaborated more effectively in the desktop era. What’s exciting about this phase of RingCentral’s evolution is the opportunity to transform how businesses and teams collaborate and communicate in the mobile era.”
