Happy Thanksgiving! Here’s What a Few Zoom Customers & Employees Are Thankful For This Year
November 28, 2019 by Zoom

We here at Zoom have a lot to be thankful for. Even one of the themes of Zoomtopia 2019, our annual user conference, was gratitude — for our employees, customers, partners, and everyone in between — but we can hardly express enough thanks for everyone who’s made Zoom what it is today.

From scrappy video startup to a successful 2019 IPO to the leading video-first unified communications provider serving the world’s premier organizations, the Zoom journey has been an amazing one, and it continues to get better. We couldn’t have done it without everyone believing in Zoom and making us their communications platform of choice. We also couldn’t have done it without our amazing employees all over the world.

A few Zoom customers and team members told us what they’re giving thanks for this holiday season, and here’s what they said:

“I am thankful for the dexterity that Zoom has allowed the many students, faculty, and staff to discover and sustain connectivity around campus, across the state of Texas, and all over the world. There is not a day that goes by that I do not learn about how Zoom is innovating the Aggie community. The Office for Academic Innovation at Texas A&M University looks forward to continuing to tell these unique and diverse stories of connectivity that Zoom is facilitating!” — Jocelyn Widmer, Assistant Provost for Academic Innovation, Texas A&M University

“There are quite a few things that I am continually thankful for but perhaps none greater than the circle of friends I’ve been fortunate enough to surround myself with. There is nothing as important or as undeniably enriching as this collective I’ve come to see as family. Neighbors, coworkers, and chance encounters alike, my friends make life and the shared experiences more vibrant. I’m thankful for these people and for the privilege to be a friend to them.” — Ben Kukor, Customer Success, Zoom
