Taj Reneau

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Co-founder, Chairman and CEO, Taj Reneau led the charge to establish Webley as the leader in speech-enabled unified communications. A pioneer in the UC industry, his vision drives overall performance and strategy for Webley, including finance, operations and growth.

Taj began his career as a technology consultant specializing in building wireless facilities and data centers in Central America and Mexico. Later, he co-founded EffectNet, a messaging company where his duties as CEO included client acquisition and product development.

EffectNet partnered with Webley Systems to provide unified communications to its growing customer base. Ultimately, Reneau saw the need for more control over the UC product. The two companies merged in 2001 and became Webley. Under Taj’s guidance, Webley continues to innovate.
