PHOENIX, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Allbound, the leading Partner Relationship Management (PRM) solution, announced today that David Guthrie has been elected to Allbound’s Board of Directors. Guthrie now serves on four boards and is a fractional CTO and CPO for other public and private companies.
“David Guthrie is the brightest technologist I have ever encountered,” said Allbound’s chief executive officer Daniel Graff-Radford. “Our team looks forward to learning from him.”
Guthrie co-founded Medcast, a news and information system enabling physicians to review news within their specialties in a multimedia broadcast format, and made it available to the general public. It was developed to be extremely well-received in the medical community and sold Medcast to WebMD for $215M. Guthrie, former CTO of PGi, led the development of the company’s hybrid global VolP collaboration network to what is today the world’s largest pure-play provider of collaboration software and services with more than 50,000 enterprise customers to include 75% of the Fortune 100. PGi sold to SiriusCapital in 2015 for $1.1B.
“Distribution channels are more and more important for success. Building sales teams from scratch takes time and dollars. Leveraging partners for distribution is critical, but tools have been lacking to help manage this effectively,” said Guthrie. “I am excited about the mission at Allbound and the energy and expertise that Daniel Graff-Radford is bringing as CEO.”
Guthrie has been selected for the Georgia Chief Information Officer Lifetime Achievement Award and was chosen by ComputerWorld as a Premier 100 Chief Technology Officer and Chief Information Officer. He also holds twenty patents.
David Guthrie joins Scott Salkin, Allbound co-founder, and Jim Armstrong, managing partner at Canal partners, as Allbound’s board of directors.
