Mitel Featured on Premiere of C-Suite TV's Mind Your Own Business
Mitel Leaders to Share How They Created a Billion Dollar Communications
OTTAWA, July 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW) is
showcased on today's premiere episode of Mind Your Own Business (MYOB), a
digital broadcast business show from on-demand and web-based digital broadcast
television network C-Suite TV. MYOB is hosted by Jeffrey Hayzlett,
contributing editor and host of The C-Suite with Jeffrey Hayzlett on Bloomberg
On the premiere episode, CEO and president Rich McBee, CMO and chief of staff
Martyn Etherington and Joe Vitalone, executive vice president for the
Americas, share insights on Mitel's acquisition of Aastra, and its approach to
industry consolidation. The episode also highlights the steps Mitel took to
maintain growth and focus in this transitional period, including:
*Its strategy for offering customers the best path for moving to cloud
*The philosophy behind its "outside-in" customer-focused culture.
"Mitel has spent the last 12 months expanding the company through mergers and
acquisition activity, and we're thrilled for the opportunity to share with
MYOB viewers how we believe we have made it a success," said Etherington.
McBee and Etherington say companies have two options for growth: new product
innovations that open new markets and industry consolidation and acquisitions.
Mitel discusses how they are a leader in both.
"The acquisition of Aastra has gone phenomenally well so far. I've done a lot
of M&A work and this has been a text book case of strong cultural and
geographic alignment and post-acquisition execution," said McBee. "As a
result, the acquisition has catapulted Mitel into first place in market share
in Western Europe and gave us the critical mass we needed, creating a $1.1
"We chose Mitel for the first episode of MYOB because it's a company on the
move, driving multiple major growth initiatives, all while keeping focus on
customers," said Hayzlett. "Mitel is fascinating because it's a huge company
doing something different and doing it better than its competitors."
