Mike Thornback has been in the Collaboration industry for nearly 10 years, starting out as as a Desk Side support staff and working up to a role as a Senior Collaboration Architect. Most of his experience centres around Cisco, Polycom and Vidyo infrastructure implementation in highly scalable and resilient deployments.

Because of his work for various VARs, Mike is also a certified infocomm technology specialist, meaning he has a great exposure to the Audio Visual components of Collaboration and can apply them to developing room standards and best practices for everything from the desk to the huddle space to the boardroom.

When Mike isn’t working, he is an avid reader, movie buff and cyclist. He also spends a great deal of time with his family, who keep him grounded (and sane).
