Lyle Ball, CEO
Lyle envisioned Avii based on the collective contributions made by the amazing executive assistants, personal assistants and corporate office managers he’s worked with during the past 25 years. He knows how valuable these team members are to the culture, operations and progress of every successful company.
He spends his day listening to customers, reading the market, and steering Avii on paths that solve real world problems for consultants in all scenarios--from Global 1000 consultants who serve the most complex clients in the world...to the vast majority of consultants who work in offices of 20 or fewer employees yet serve almost all organizations on Earth.
He is a creative and driven software executive, with a productive history and disciplined approach for leading data-driven changes through strategic market analysis, rapid-growth organizational uplifts, metered international expansion, and value-based human capital development.
Lyle gained his 20+ years of leadership experience in high technology, clean energy and professional services companies with extensive reach in Cloud, SaaS, Open Source and legal service markets. The majority of his career is anchored to venture capital organizations, including Venrock, Northbridge, Canopy Group and Amp Resources; and as a partner to Apple, Google, Amazon, PayPal, Microsoft, Salesforce and other leading software mega-giants.
He speaks several languages and has enjoyed overseeing companies and teams in the United States, Europe, Asia, and South America. Lyle graduated from Brigham Young University.
