Sonic Foundry has announced that Dr Paul S. Peercy has retired from its board of directors after 12 years, effective immediately due to personal reasons.
Having served as a director since 2004, Peercy was central to Sonic Foundry obtaining higher-education market share, due to his knowledge of the sector and his experience from serving as the dean of the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Engineering for 13 years.
“Paul’s contributions have been invaluable to the board and the management team. It’s been a privilege to work side-by-side with him and share his singular vision of the power of enterprise video,” said Mark Burish, chairman of the board, Sonic Foundry. “On behalf of the board, I thank Paul for his outstanding leadership, his tireless support for the company and his camaraderie over the years.”
“Paul’s commitment to higher education, his dedication to academic video and his hunger to never stop learning has been an inspiration,” said Gary Weis, chief executive officer, Sonic Foundry. “His contributions have been of immeasurable value to the board, the company and our customers’ missions. We wish him the best.”
Sonic Foundry has no immediate plans to replace Dr. Peercy on the Board of Directors.
