About Us

StarLeaf brings people together through the power of messaging, meetings and calling.

StarLeaf is a privately held company with offices throughout the world. We are a service provider and manufacturer with both messaging and video conferencing services and a comprehensive range of video endpoints for meeting rooms, desktops and mobility.

The StarLeaf OpenCloud has been built from the ground up and we do not use or rely upon any third-party products. This keeps us in control and ensures that we deliver our customers real-time reliability for their voice and video communications. We operate a robust global network, with multiple points of presence that are strategically located worldwide. Our network is fully redundant, secure and high performing.

From this solid foundation we aim to provide our customers with the most affordable, easy and reliable messaging, video and voice communication systems on the market. But, most importantly, we are focused on delivering services and products that allow you to easily connect with anyone, anywhere and at any time.

The company was founded in 2008 by three veteran telecoms and video conferencing entrepreneurs and Cambridge graduates: Mark Loney, Chief Executive Officer; William MacDonald, Chief Technology Officer; and Mark Richer, Executive Chairman.

Since inception StarLeaf has focused on the needs of the business communications market, prioritizing ease of use for customers; high quality of calls and service; and enterprise quality network monitoring and call control.
