Managed and cloud video solutions provider Applied Global Technologies (AGT) has promoted Mark Cray, executive vice president of global sales and marketing, to CEO. He succeeds co-founder Ben Atha, who assumes the role of executive chairman after serving 20 years at AGT as chief technology officer and CEO.
In his 16 years at AGT, Cray has built a strong and diverse background in managed services and video communications, serving many key roles at AGT in sales and marketing, operations, engineering and service delivery. He began his career at AGT as regional business manager.
“I’m incredibly excited about the opportunity to lead AGT. Having had the great fortune to work in just about every part of our business over the past 16 years, I’ve come to truly appreciate how talented, hardworking, and dedicated to the customer the people that make up this company are," said Cray. “This is a very dynamic market, and AGT’s ability to innovate and adapt to the needs of the customer has made us tremendously successful over the past two decades. As the adoption of video continues its incredible growth trajectory, so does the need for experienced, talented companies with the know-how to design, integrate and manage collaboration environments."
