GreenLight Our Team

Kevin Ward, President & CEO

When Kevin is not enjoying the deep powder in Colorado, he is running GreenLight Collaboration. And sometimes at the same time—fortunately GreenLight’s conferencing technology allows him to join conferences from the chair lift.

Kevin Ward is responsible for the overall management and operation of PC Conferencing. An avid ski racer, Kevin understands the key metrics of accelerating business performance. He understands what it takes to make online meetings successful and cost effective. He has 30 years of telecommunications and securities industry experience. Prior to founding PC Conferencing, Kevin’s sales and management expertise at Global Crossing (formerly Frontier ConferTech), allowed him to drive sales in excess of 115% each year. Kevin attended the University of Denver from 1974-1978, majoring in Marketing. He is an active ski racer with Rocky Mountain Masters (www.rmmskiracing.org) and is a board member with the Rocky Mountain Division of USSA (www.rmdussa.com).

Suzanne Seigh, Finance & Administration

Suzanne’s personal motto is “Learn something new everyday, and help someone everyday.”  She is a Regional Ambassador for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, and as a Team Captain, helps to raise Cancer Awareness and funds to fight Cancer. 

Suzanne applies the same principles to GreenLight Collaboration and her leadership has resulted in significant contributions to the Accounting and Human Resources Departments. Suzanne’s financial accounting and HR responsibilities include A/R, A/P, General Ledger, Budgets & Forecasts, Payroll, and Compensation Administration functions at GreenLight Collaboration.  Her experience in various industries and job functions enables her to wear many hats and approach challenges with a “big picture” attitude.  Her career highlights include Management for MGE UPS Systems, Major Account Representative for Konica Business Technologies, Operational Administrative Assistant for Cisco Systems, and Accountant and Office Manager for several Denver based companies.  She received her degree in Accounting from the University of Colorado, Denver.

Justin Bretting, Operations & Technology

Justin takes full advantage of living in Colorado. When he is not behind a computer, or figuring out how to make GreenLight Collaboration more robust and easier to use, he is skiing, cycling, golfing, and enjoying everything Colorado has to offer.

It’s not Justin’s diverse experience working with large telco’s like Sprint and Verizon, or smaller start-ups that is so impressive. Nor is it his management training from Yale or his computer science and engineering degree from Bucknell. It’s Justin’s enthusiasm and tenacious attitude that is remarkable. Justin is responsible for leading the technical vision of GreenLight Collaboration. His goal is to figure out how to make the most complicated technical solutions easy for customers to use. All these qualities enable Justin to lead our technical vision into the future.
