Under Yuan’s leadership, Zoom had one of the most successful tech IPOs in 2019.

He was one of the founding engineers and VP of engineering for Webex. From 1997 to 2011, Yuan increased his team size from 10 to over 800 engineers globally and contributed to revenue growth of more than $800 million.

Yuan has been recognized as one of Business Insider’s Most Powerful People in Enterprise Tech, and in 2018, he was named the #1 CEO of a Large U.S. Company by Glassdoor. He was also named Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year in Northern California in the software category. In 2019, he was added to the Bloomberg 50 as a leader who changed the game in global business. Additionally, Yuan is listed as an inventor on 11 issued and 20 pending patents in real-time collaboration.
