Following the merger between Priava and Ungerboeck in November 2021, Manish Chandak, President & CEO at Ungerboeck, has taken over from Tom Gleeson to lead our global team. This leadership change will allow our businesses to unite as one company with a shared mission to drive the events industry into the future with state-of-the-art software.
Manish Chandak joined Ungerboeck as the Chief Technology Officer in 2015 and assumed the role of President and CEO in 2016. Manish has an MS in electrical engineering, an MBA from Washington University, and a wealth of experience leading and growing global software companies.
Throughout his tenure with Ungerboeck, Manish has driven significant expansion throughout the United States and EMEA. In addition, he has been instrumental in facilitating the recent acquisitions of Priava, Event Booking and ShoWorks with a vision of amalgamating leading events software providers to accelerate industry innovation and add more value for customers worldwide.
The broader Ungerboeck Executive Team will support Manish to support all our existing customers with the same focus on success and ensure new customers are matched with the system that best suits their needs.
Fred Lazzerini, Ungerboeck Senior Vice President, International, has assumed the responsibility of managing Priava under Manish’s direction. Fred has been part of the Ungerboeck team since 2005 and has a background in IT Management for event venues.
We thank Tom Gleeson for his valuable contribution to the Priava in the latter part of 2021, and we look forward to the future as part of Ungerboeck with Manish Chandak at the helm.
