Good news and bad news: You’ve found my blog. That’s the bad news, because if you read too much of it, you’ll probably tire of my rants. The good news is that you’re at least reading my blog.
I am a technology CEO, most recently President and COO of AutoLoop, a fast-growing disrupter in the automotive tech space which we merged with Affinitiv. Before AutoLoop, I spent several years as an operating partner, investor and board member, including being a board member of BlueStripe Software (acquired by Microsoft); a board member of Google’s StopBadware; a board member of Knowbe4; a board member of Malwarebytes; and chairman of the board of Runaware Holding AB. I’m also on the advisory board of the Antimalware Standards Testing Organization (AMTSO); and am an advisor to security startups Prevasio and Transient X.
I have written a lot on the subject of security. I also write about other things that interest me.
I was formerly the president of GFI/Teamviewer Software’s security division, and for eight years, was the CEO of Sunbelt Software (now ThreatTrack Security). I started my career at Borland, spent many years at Quartederdeck (now Symantec and Cisco WebEx), had a few startups along the way, and generally have been more lucky than particularly talented.
