Bhise led Synacor to a successful 2018 due to high-margin recurring software revenue, growing 11% year over year. The company signed over 100 new Zimbra email business and government customers worldwide and also closed a deal with Newsy to its growing list of content providers. The coming year promises to be equally successful as Bhise is described by some at Synacor as “pleasantly relentless,” committed to doing what it takes to benefit employees, customers, and investors.
