1. Could you tell me a little about your background and how you came to be the SVP of Sales & Marketing at Gryphon Networks?.
I’ve been in the technology space for almost 20 years. I started selling hardware for companies like EMC and Hewlett-Packard. I slowly started migrating my way towards the software side of the house for a number of reasons, more specifically it was more interesting to me and seemed to provide real value for business users.
My real interest evolved with the late 1990s, early 2000s’ explosion of data and information available to businesses. I’ve always been fascinated by the smart application of information to improve competitive advantage and time to market.
