I thought I would kick off our new blog with some information about me and my background. I have been working in the high tech industry for eleven years now and I bring eight years of management experience to my role as CEO and Chairman of the Board for CoreBlox. Prior to joining CoreBlox, I was Director of Business Systems for Netegrity, a leading provider of enterprise security solutions. In my role leading Netegrity's Business Systems group, I was responsible for all internal applications, including Netegrity's CRM, financial, HR, and Intranet/Extranet systems. The team delivered industry-recognized applications, including CRM Magazine's 2004 CRM Elite award for Netegrityï¿½s Onyx-based CRM implementation. I started at Netegrity in the field, traveling to customers to implement our products, troubleshoot issues, do professional services work and pretty much anything else they wanted me to do.
Prior to joining Netegrity, I managed Arthur Andersen's identity management team where I was responsible for deploying and managing Andersen's firm-wide user identity infrastructure. This work included a worldwide deployment handling over 100,000 users for authentication and identity provisioning.
I graduated from University of Iowa in 1994 with a B.S. in Computer Science. My technical background includes database development, identity and access management, low-level programming, user interface design, and portal technologies. I have spent the last five years focused on support and search technologies and have presented at several events including the Gartner IT Symposium and the Service and Support Professionals Association's (SSPA) "Leveraging untapped eSupport opportunities" discussion. I was also quoted in TechRepublic;s article, "Win over older staff members by taking on the facilitator role" on May 29, 2003.
I have been extremely lucky to work with the team of people I work with now. We have all worked together for the last five years and we bring our trust, effectiveness, passion and drive to CoreBlox. While working with this team at Netegrity, I received multiple peer recognition and company awards, including an All-Star award in 2000 and Netegrityï¿½s Special Recognition Award in 2001.
