Teliris, a provider of telepresence solutions, has opened its Wall Street offices in New York City, complete with an on-site demonstration facility for its technology.

The new 17,000 square foot facility, located at 55 Broadway in New York City's financial district, includes a specialized research and development lab. The lab will be dedicated to the growth of the next generation of collaboration technologies.
Founded in 2001, Teliris develops, implements and manages telepresence systems designed to realistically replicate the human dynamics of live meetings. Teliris' solutions have been deployed more than 200 times in more than 22 countries. The company claims to have the largest installed base of Fortune 500/FTSE 100 companies in its customer roster.

Headquartered in New York and London, the company combines a fully managed service with end-to-end integration that offers businesses a 24/7 multipoint capability with a 99 percent or higher availability guarantee. Last year, Fidelity Ventures and Columbia Capital took a major equity stake in Teliris.
To further assist Teliris' expansion, Jim Kaufold has joined Teliris from Orange Business Services as Senior Vice President of Global Sales, responsible for developing Teliris' direct and indirect sales channels.
Also, Bob Johnson has signed on with the company from Cisco as the Senior Vice President of Marketing & Product Management with overall leadership responsibility for developing and implementing the company marketing strategy.

At the company's European headquarters in London, Tony Smith is also joining Teliris from Polycom as Vice President of European Sales, with the directive to establish and lead a European sales organization designed to promote the Teliris solution to a wider range of prospects in their local language.
"Each of these strategic hires are key to our continued success and innovative leadership in the telepresence industry," said Marc Trachtenberg, Teliris CEO and co-founder, in a statement. "Jim, Bob and Tony were chosen specifically for their superior leadership skills and experience to help further Teliris' global expansion as the telepresence industry leader with the largest number of room installations and the most immersive meeting experience available today."
