“Terry Matthews is a true giant in the telecom industry – or any industry for that matter – helping to launch more than 70 companies, and employing tens-of-thousands of people along the way,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC president and ITEXPO conference chairman. “I believe the opportunity to hear Terry’s views on technology, telecom, and entrepreneurship alone is worth the trip to ITEXPO, and I’m looking forward to seeing Terry in Los Angeles.”
"Sir Terry is very active in our space today with Magor networks providing HD Telepresence systems and his Benbria and Telidio wireless companies," added Carl Ford, Co Founder of Crossfire Media and Chairman of the 4G Wireless Evolution event colocated at IT EXPO.
Sir Terence Matthews is Chairman of Wesley Clover and he also serves as Chairman of Mitel and March Networks, two companies active in developing Internet Protocol (IP) systems for enterprise applications.
Prior to joining Wesley Clover, he served as CEO and Chairman of Newbridge Networks Corporation, a company he founded in 1986. When France-based Alcatel acquired Newbridge in May 2000, the company employed more than 6,500 people and achieved annual revenue exceeding $1.8 billion. Prior to founding Newbridge, Terry co-founded Mitel Corporation in 1972, where he grew that company to become a world leader in the design and manufacture of enterprise voice systems. In 1985, British Telecom bought controlling interest in Mitel.
In 2001, Terry purchased the worldwide Communications Systems division of Mitel, and the Mitel name, and is now owner and non-executive Chairman of Mitel Corporation, a company focused on providing next generation IP telephony solutions for broadband networks. Terry also serves on the board of directors and is Chairman for a number of companies including Bridgewater Systems, March Networks, Solace Systems and Counterpath Corporation.
