I have had the good fortune to join and help build two early stage enterprise software start-ups into industry leaders: Oracle and Siebel. Both capitalized upon technology transformations that led to rapid industry change. At Apple, I learned how to develop and deliver world-class consumer products. All were invaluable work experiences with great brands that taught me how to think about building winning companies. Today, the software industry continues to experience technology disruptions such as Cloud Computing and mobility applications that are driving a whole new class of consumer and enterprise application software. I look forward to working with entrepreneurs who see these opportunities and helping them to build market leading companies.
