As CTO, Mark spearheads ConvergeOne’s innovations in technology solutions and services. He spent 25 years as the Chief Operating Officer at Spanlink Communications, which ConvergeOne acquired in 2014. A graduate of the University of Minnesota, Mark has been an instructor there since 1996 and in 2014 assumed the role of Associate Program Director.
The most challenging, yet interesting, part of ConvergeOne's intellectual property journey was the level of change it demanded, Langanki said.

"This was a mindset change as much as it was an operational transformation," Langanki said. "Building software is the easy part."
