Ben Lilienthal
We worked together  •  3x start-ups, 2x exits. Former GM @ Citrix. Former EIR. working on an idea in an area where I have domain expertise
Ben has demonstrated twice with projects we've worked together on to know what it takes and how to deliver success, and even more important ... how to use the model of fail fast/succeed soon. His work with HiDef Conferencing was both market making and market leading, breaking new barriers in conferencing and technology. He then integrated the technology into the acquirers platform at Citrix, making it the best product in its category by far. Ben is also honest, diplomatic, while being direct and takes pride in those whom he surrounds himself with. Lastly, as a business person, he is both firm and fair in how he negotiates and treats people, motivating properly and positively.
