Kramer new chairman of Envivio’s board
Video vendor Envivio announced this morning that Terry Kramer was appointed as the chairman of the company’s board of directors.
Kramer, a telecommunications executive and former United States ambassador for the World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT), has served on Envivio’s board for two years.
“I have enjoyed working with the company at the center of TV without boundaries and am excited by Envivio’s pioneering technology,” Kramer said. “The video industry continues to advance at a rapid pace, and consumers’ appetites for TV anywhere require innovators like Envivio to develop solutions that improve network efficiency and the user experience.”
Kramer served in a variety of executive roles for Vodafone Group/Airtouch Communications during his 18-year tenure with the company, including group strategy and business improvement director and regional president, Vodafone Americas, overseeing Vodafone's investment in Verizon Wireless and its venture capital activities.
As WCIT ambassador, in 2012, he was responsible for negotiating an Internet and telecom treaty on behalf of the United States that focused on ensuring a free and open Internet, avoiding cyber security threats, and accelerating broadband access in markets around the world.
He has also advised growing technology companies, including as CEO of QComm International and board member for Fiber Tower, 724 Solutions and Sonim Technologies. Currently, he is a lecturer and faculty advisor at the UCLA Anderson School of Management and was an entrepreneur in residence at the Harvard Business School from 2011 to 2013.
“Terry’s experience and management skills bring a strong and valuable perspective to our board of directors,” said Julien Signès, Envivio’s president and CEO. “His recent selection as chairman is a reflection of his leadership and expertise in the technology space, and we are pleased to have Terry on our board.”
Kramer also sits on the boards of the Harvard Business School California Research Center, UCLA’s Economics Department Board of Visitors, Larkin Street Youth Services and the World Affairs Council of Northern California.
