Industry Veteran Joins Copper Conferencing Board of Managers
Conferencing Services Veteran Carolyn Bradfield to Join Board of Managers
BROOMFIELD, CO--(Marketwire - April 2, 2008) - Copper Conferencing, a leading provider of
teleconferencing services, announced today the
addition of Carolyn Bradfield to its board of managers. Bradfield is a
pioneer in the conferencing industry and has founded several of the
industry's largest and most successful service providers.
"Small businesses have the most to gain from the effective use of
conferencing technology," said Bradfield. "Reducing costs and creating
efficiencies by holding remote meetings, educating the marketplace, and
conducting sales calls allows a small business to better compete with much
larger players in any industry. With market conditions and the rising cost
of travel, conferencing allows a small company to maintain their
competitive edge and hold the line on expenses."
Bradfield began her conferencing career in 1991 as one of the co-founders
of InterCall, now the largest conferencing service provider in the world.
In 1995, she founded Quorum Conferencing, which was acquired by Citizens
Conferencing, now a division of Premiere Global Services in 1998. In 2000,
she founded InterAct Conferencing, which was acquired in 2002 by Raindance
Communications. Bradfield led the growth of Raindance for 2 years as Senior
Vice President of Sales and Marketing, before InterCall and West
Corporation acquired the company.
"Carolyn brings considerable experience in the conferencing and
collaboration industry to our board," said Brad Dupee, Chairman and CEO of
Copper Conferencing. "She has been the driving force behind the adoption
of many of the most significant innovations in the conferencing industry
over the past 20 years. As a result, her successful track record adds depth
and dimension to Copper Conferencing's Board of Managers."
