Michael Horvath
We worked together  •  Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Revenova LLC. Previously Founder & Executive Vice President, Forseva.
John is the most influential mentor of my business career. He is a natural leader, business strategist and the best sales manager I have ev ... er known. He leads by example and empowers his teams to achieve their objectives through clear goal setting and collaborative engagement. His track record of success is proof of his ability to develop winning business strategies and corresponding execution plans. He led the sales organization at Quintus Corporation, a CRM software company, and was instrumental in taking the company public by developing the human capital needed to maintain a level of excellence throughout the organization. He took his skills to a completely different industry, a privately held food distributor, and implemented his business/management methodology. The company's revenues grew quickly to a point where the company was acquired. He has mastered the art of seeing "what can be" and "how to get there from here". He does it with intelligence, passion and enthusiasm that motivates the entire company to perform. I've modeled much of what I do today from what I learned from John early in my career. I'd highly recommend him as an advisor and would welcome the opportunity to work with him again.

Michael Horvath
We worked together  •  Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Revenova LLC. Previously Founder & Executive Vice President, Forseva.
Michael is an extremely driven professional willing to take risks when he believes in the value of something. He is a creative, persuasive a ... nd passionate leader with a proven track record of success. For example his successful venture Forseva: Michael identified a unmet need in the market, developed a vision and value proposition, secured funding, brought the product to market, secured customers, and build the company to a level where it was successfully acquired for a substantial profit. When Michael worked for me as a Regional Sales VP at another startup, he led by example driving the highest sales for the company and helped contributed to our successful $1.5B IPO. Michael operates with the highest levels of ethics and integrity. He is a visionary that thinks outside the box with a sense of practical logic. He articulates complex concepts with compelling simplicity. He works well with others across business functions from technical engineering to finance, marketing and sales. I would work with Michael again anytime.
