Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. Appoints Jeff Miller as Chief Commercial Officer Effective October 22, 2018
BRIDGEWATER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 9, 2018--Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNCR), a global leader and innovator in cloud, messaging, digital, and IoT products and platforms, announced today that Jeff Miller has been appointed to the Synchronoss Leadership Team as its new Chief Commercial Officer, effective October 22. Miller comes to Synchronoss from IDEAL Industries, Inc., where he served as Group President with responsibility for leading the Technology Business Group.
Prior to IDEAL, Miller progressed through a number of executive-level positions at Motorola Mobility, most notably as Corporate Vice President and General Manager, North America Operations. In addition to being a seasoned business leader, Miller actively lends his time, talent and passion to spark innovation and optimize the use of technology to improve lives and communities through his work as a board member for Junior Achievement as well as for 1871 and the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center.
“We are very excited to have Jeff join the team,” said Synchronoss President and CEO Glenn Lurie. “As an experienced leader, Jeff is the perfect person for this role and will be a tremendous addition to our culture given his passionate work ethic, focused purpose on goals and objectives, and the care he extends to the people he works with and customers he supports. Jeff will no doubt help drive Synchronoss to the next level of growth, and I am delighted to have him on board.”
Miller has held a number of non-profit and industry-related board roles, including with the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) Board as a twice-elected officer of the Executive Board, the Motorola Foundation, the CTIA Foundation and the Economic Club of Chicago. Miller will take over the Chief Commercial Officer role from Bob Garcia, who will be leaving Synchronoss at the end of October to pursue other interests.
Commenting on Garcia’s departure, Lurie said: “Over the years, Bob has served as a mentor, advisor and friend to employees, and his guidance and knowledge will not be easy to replicate. Bob was one of Synchronoss’ first employees and has been a vital member of our leadership team including serving as President and Chief Operating Officer and helping to launch the company in August 2000.”
Lurie went on to say: “On a personal note, I’ve known Bob for over a decade, having worked closely together with Synchronoss supporting the AT&T Wireless online business, the launch of the first iPhone and more. I was immediately impressed with Bob’s business and tech savvy, and his resolve to getting the job done. He has spent the greater part of his career at Synchronoss, and his leadership, candor and people-first management style will be greatly missed. I would like to thank Bob for all he’s contributed to the business, and I know I speak for the entire senior leadership team in saying that Synchronoss will not be the same without Bob. We will always consider him part of the Synchronoss family and wish him well in his new endeavors.”
