VoIP Supply Executives
Benjamin P. SayersCEO
A serial entrepreneur since his childhood, Ben has built several companies over the past twenty years, all growing rapidly and successfully and eventually being acquired. His last was sold to a French telecom company in 2001 after six years of growth as a hosted interactive voice response service bureau and custom software development company. Ben is a hands-on leader who draws on his past experiences in business start-up and management as well as technical expertise in telephony, software development and practical software application to bring VoIP Supply's vision to life. With a specific focus on VoIP Supply's strategy development and implementation, Ben also manages the needs of each department and their dependencies on one another in order to ensure the continued growth of the company.
Ben has won several awards including Buffalo's Forty Under 40 in 2006, making the list at the age of 33. Ben was recently voted on the board of InfoTech Niagara, the Buffalo region's premier technology organization, which draws tech professionals from all over the Western New York area. Ben spent several years attending college both at Canisius College and State University at Buffalo with various studies related to computer science and Japanese language/culture. Ben opted to drop out of college to work full time and to eventually start his own company several years later.
Ben juggles each day as a CEO with being a father of three young boys. Outside of the office, he is active in their schooling and sporting activities either assisting the coaching staff or cheering from the sidelines.
