Speakeasy at the podium

Bruce Chatterley, the president and chief executive of Internet service provider Speakeasy, was the featured speaker today at the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

Chatterley started off by quoting Darwin: “It is not the strongest of species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most adaptable to change.”

He went on to talk about how the Seattle-based Speakeasy has changed over the past year to focus more on small businesses, and its mission is to become the dominant small business communications provider on a national scale. It offers business DSL and voice over IP services, and reported $66 million in revenue in 2005.

Don’t think of Speakeasy as a local ISP. Seattle is actually the company’s fourth-largest market and could soon be overtaken by Los Angeles. Speakeasy’s top three markets are the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City and Chicago.
