Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Today, Voalte announced the full transition of leadership from former CEO, Rob Campbell, to Trey Lauderdale, Founder and now President. Since the company’s founding in 2009, Mr. Campbell has been preparing Mr. Lauderdale for this transition.
“Voalte is in great shape with strong financial backing, a stellar customer base and solid management. I was privileged to be part of the birth and development of such an exciting new company,” said Mr. Campbell. “I am confident that Trey will take the reins and continue to make Voalte a success.”
Voalte has built a reputation as the leader of smartphone-based clinical communication systems for hospitals. Voalte One is installed in many of the top hospitals in the United States and used by more than 10,000 clinical staff members nationwide.
“I was fortunate to have Rob as part of our founding team. He brought a wealth of experience, an insider’s perspective on equity financing and the energy of a serial entrepreneur,” said Mr. Lauderdale.
Mr. Campbell and Mr. Lauderdale met at the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Florida, where Mr. Campbell sits on the Executive Board of Advisors and Mr. Lauderdale attended graduate school.
“I knew there was something special about Trey, and his recent promotion to President is proof,” replied Mr. Campbell when discussing the early days at Voalte.
Mr. Lauderdale brought his idea to Mr. Campbell in early 2009, where the two, along with Ben King, Chief Technology Officer, and Oscar Callejas, Chief Experience Officer, hammered out the Voalte business plan around Mr. Campbell’s kitchen table.
“My wife Linda would cook for the young entrepreneurs as we ran spreadsheets and discussed product features,” said Mr. Campbell. “Linda played a big part in keeping the team fed and acted as a sounding board for new ideas. As a matter of fact, Linda came up with the idea for the pink scrubs, now worn by all employees when visiting hospitals.”
Mr. Campbell remains a major shareholder in Voalte but has turned over the day-to-day operations to Mr. Lauderdale. With a long history of new venture creation, Mr. Campbell is already looking at new opportunities in technology. He is a long-term resident and active member of the Sarasota, Florida, community, where Voalte is located.
