Leading enterprise collaboration solution provider Beezy appoints Office 365 MVP and globally-recognized SharePoint evangelist to lead company’s marketing strategy
Beezy Inc., the most comprehensive enterprise collaboration solution for Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint, today announced it has hired SharePoint and Office 365 expert, technology evangelist, and Microsoft MVP Christian Buckley as chief marketing officer (CMO). Buckley will report directly to Beezy founder and CEO Jordi Plana.
“Christian’s marketing acumen and evangelism will accelerate our growth. As a recognized leader on the topics of SharePoint social, migration and governance, Christian knows the issues that our customers face and will help organizations worldwide to better understand how Beezy can move their collaboration workloads to the cloud on their own terms, and at their own pace,” said Plana. “Beezy’s transformational enterprise collaboration technology and award-winning user interface, in combination with our migration tools, make us the only company that can truly unlock the silos created by other social platforms, bringing content, collaboration, and administration together within Office 365 or SharePoint on-premises.”
Buckley comes to Beezy from GTconsult LLC, a consulting and managed services provider specializing in SharePoint and Office 365 solutions, where as Managing Director-Americas, he opened the US market and established an office and team in Bellevue, Washington. Prior to GTconsult, Buckley was chief evangelist for software vendor Metalogix, and was instrumental in the acquisitions of Axceler in 2013, and echoTechnology in 2010. As a four-time recipient of Microsoft’s prestigious MVP award, Buckley is recognized for his thought leadership and community efforts in the SharePoint and Office 365 space, and is a frequent keynote speaker at events around the world. Buckley’s technology career has spanned almost 25 years, including a role on the Microsoft team that created the hosted version of SharePoint, now part of the Office 365 platform.
“I’ve been a fan of Beezy’s award-winning collaboration solutions for years, and I am thrilled to be joining during this time of rapid growth,” stated Buckley. “I’m particularly excited about Beezy’s migration tools from Jive, IBM Connections, and Sitrion (formerly NewsGator) to Office 365 and SharePoint on prem, and their integrations with Yammer. Giving customers the ability to move away from these social silos is a game changer.”
