Over a 25 year distinguished career as a sales and marketing executive, Mike has led numerous early stage venture backed companies to succes ... sful liquidity events and the creation of shareholder wealth. Mike’s efforts to bring to market early stage firms and define emerging markets span a remarkable range that includes Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Virtualization, and Cyber Security. Prior to joining working on, Mike founded the business team at CipherCloud, an Andreessen Horowitz portfolio company and market leader in Cloud Data Encryption. At CipherCloud, Mike led sales through the formative years of corporate lifecycle and worked to create market defining Cloud partnerships with, Amazon AWS, and Microsoft Office 365. That's the capacity in which I met Mike, when we were evaluating Ciphercloud as a vendor for Morgan Stanley IT. He was thoughtful throughout the whole process and extremely knowledgeable about how to do things right in the enterprise. Mike’s other successful ventures include CollabNet (first commercial Cloud offering for DevOps, leader in Open Source software and World Economic Forum Tech Pioneer), Geodesic Systems (JVM technology licensor to Sun Microsystems and acquired by Veritas) and IKOS Systems (a leader in ASIC design automation, IPO in 1992 and acquired by Mentor Graphics).
