There is no team like this in the AI market today...we can't wait to get started.
OLD GREENWICH, Conn. (PRWEB) February 27, 2018
Speakeasy AI’s, the world’s first and only provider of Speech-to-Intent™ solutions, today announced its executive team, including Chief Executive, Technical and Customer Officers. Angel investor and founder, Richard Simons led today’s announcement for his newly backed venture. “I am incredibly enthusiastic about the market opportunity and solutions of Speakeasy AI, primarily because of the team they have assembled to execute on their future plans,” said Simons.
Speakeasy AI’s CEO is Frank Schneider, formerly an officer and VP of Sales, Marketing and Customer Success at Creative Virtual USA. During Schneider’s tenure, Creative Virtual USA grew revenue over 300% and secured more Fortune 500 enterprise virtual assistant deployments than any other competitor in the space. “The convergence of voicebot awareness via conversational interfaces like Alexa, the proven experience and knowledge of our team, and the groundbreaking solution we have developed is tailored to fill identified AI gaps. This endeavor is taken to another level by the confidence and backing of Richard (Simons). Our solution and team are going to deliver game-changing experiences for our client partners and their customers,” said Schneider.
Speakeasy AI’s CTO is Moshe Villaizan, former Head of Application Engineering at Creative Virtual USA. A seasoned developer with singular skills, Villaizan was an instrumental leader for Creative Virtual USA to build, deliver and enable applications using AI for some of the world’s largest brands. Solutions influenced and led by Villaizan are some of the most well known in the AI space and have handled tens of millions of AI conversations. Villaizan is the creator of the Speakeasy AI engine, admin console and API library, and owns product development. Says Villaizan, “Speakeasy AI will be the authority of intent in the enterprise for our partners, enabling timely knowledge of business conditions and rapid improvement across all self-service channels. We’ve built and continue to build a solution that is easier for enterprises to implement, manage and maintain. I am excited to deliver on the true potential of AI within voice for consumers.”
Speakeasy AI’s CCO is Kyle Scofield, former VP of Alternative Care Channels at Time Warner Cable. Scofield has been responsible for leading some of the largest, most comprehensive and innovative care initiatives in the Fortune 500 including live chat, video chat, messaging, AI/chatbot, IVR, and mobile app. On top of his technology and AI expertise, Scofield’s career began in leading some of the largest support labor forces in the telco/cable industry. Scofield was a client partner of Creative Virtual USA, and through that partnership, continues to establish elements of a shared vision of the future of AI with the Speakeasy AI team. “While the potential of AI in the voice space has been tremendous for the last few years, real-life implementations have suffered from long development cycles and confusing customer experiences. Speakeasy’s innovative platform changes that.”
“There is no team like this in the AI market today. Combining an unrivaled development team led by a talent like Moshe, a pragmatic yet customer-focused delivery vision set by a leading practitioner like Kyle, and venture backing by a proven AI pioneer like Richard, we can’t wait to get started,” said Schneider.
