Vouch for them.

LaVonne Reimer
They're my advisor
Eugene brings an amazing combination of vision and ability to execute. I have watched him step into roles that required both. In one case a ... new initiative inside a big company and another involving a startup creating a new market. In each case he succeeded thanks to that rare ability to see the future and get stuff done today. I seek him out for advice all the time because I know he'll bring that ability and perspective to whatever I put in front of him. Last and not least, Eugene is a great person to be with, essential given the level of commitment required for new ventures.
Rajiv Parikh
We worked together
Eugene is already a successful founder, startup CEO and big company executive. He quickly understands key technical and business issues an ... d can go into incredible depth. While Eugene could easily take over and make key decisions, he chooses to build his teams in a collaborative and transparent matter. Eugene has been my firm's client in and is currently in our CEO group. His friendship and advice has been invaluable to me in my own professional and personal growth. I would wholeheartedly recommend Eugene to any group of founders who are looking to change the world and make it a better place.
Wally Smith
They're my friends
Eugene has been part of some significant successes in his career. More importantly he has been part of failure as well. His start-up experie ... nce coupled with his large size company years at companies like Adobe make him uniquely qualified as a start-up exec who can transition to the growth stage.
Lance Trebesch
They're my friends
I have been in a CEO peer group with Eugene for the past 19 months. Eugene is highly intelligent, has acute pattern recognition (and experi ... ence) on startups, entrepreneurship, technology and teams, and a superb work ethic. He is certainly someone with whom I would want to start my next venture.

Eugene is a solid startup CEO.
Shampa Banerjee
We worked together
Eugene took a start-up under bootstrap conditions as its CEO , defined a place in the market for the company and got it acquired. He was abl ... e to do what he did because he is an out of the box thinker, an entrepreneur at heart who also brings in large company experience. He was a great mentor to me and the other employees at Socialtext and operated under the highest ethical standards. He is very creative and will brainstorm to find solutions to hard problem even when things look bleak and hopeless.
Michael Novak
They're my friends
I've known Eugene for many years, and found him to embody a mix of genius and practicality. His proven experience in other ventures attest t ... o his ability to not only envision future directions and opportunities, but also to marshall the resources and develop the processes necessary to move the vision forward. He has been a trusted advisor in our company for many years, and his advice is always both sought after and welcomed. ... Michael Novak CEO, Tertia, Inc.
Shampa Banerjee

I have seen Eugene turn around a company , boot strap it and sell it at the best possible value. He has a great marketing mind not afraid to ... face difficult situations and very tenacious , he will accomplish what he wants. These are all qualities of a great entrepreneur.
