Pattison comes to Edgewater Networks with more than two decades of leadership experience in the high tech and services industries spanning executive positions in business and corporate development, marketing, product management and sales. Most recently, he served as Vice President of Business Development at Polycom, where he was responsible for all third party technology partnerships and industry solutions development and marketing activities at the company. He has over ten years of experience in the enterprise video and unified communications technology markets, including deep knowledge of the rich media capture, collaboration, publishing and network delivery spaces. A key innovator in the formation of the enterprise video marketplace, Pattison has authored numerous articles and whitepapers, as well as the book “Electronic Evidence Management, from Creation Through Litigation.”
