History & Leadership
A proven track record, implementing a world-class approach
Savant Systems LLC was founded in 2005 by a core group of technology pioneers and business executives, bringing together hundreds of years of combined real-world success in applications such as programmable systems, digital signal processing, video processing, telephony, switching platforms and home electronics integration.
Savant Systems is led by CEO, Robert Madonna, an engineering pioneer in the early telecom industry. With the onset of de-regulation in the telecommunications market place in the late 1980's, Robert Madonna identified an opportunity to introduce an open-based switching platform that would enable rapid deployment of new applications and features and in 1988 founded Excel Switching Corporation. Using this innovative approach, and with the managerial support of Jim Carroll and JC Murphy, Excel Switching quickly became the leading provider of open-programmable switches to some of the largest telecommunications companies around the world. In November of 1997, Madonna took Excel Switching Corporation public; the company was purchased in 1999 by Lucent Technologies.
More than a decade later Savant Systems is driven by this strong, proven leadership. Robert Madonna, CEO and President, Jim Carroll, Executive Vice President of Corporate Strategy, and JC Murphy, Executive Vice President of Sales once again joined forces to position Savant as the global leader in intelligent control, automation and media convergence. Coupled with the financial wherewithal of Excel Switching and Lucent veteran Bruce Myers, and the operations excellence of former Motorola executive Bruce Hayes, Savant has built a formidable team.
Combining this past and present experience to create technological advancements, quality product and processes, and first-rate customer service, Savant has emerged as a leading provider of intelligent control, automation, and audio/video systems.
