Started my career in Europe, working for financial and manufacturing companies in IT operations, software engineering and product management developing and managing the delivery of some of the industry’s leading system and network technology.
I moved to the US in 1996, to join a startup called Tivoli. I worked for Gartner as an analyst, defining new markets, writing research, providing industry and technology guidance to customers and presenting and keynoting at industry events.

I was the VP Products and Strategy at IBM Tivoli, CTO at BMC Software and SVP Portfolio Strategy at CA Technologies. I am currently the EVP, Products and Marketing at RF Code and serve as an Adjunct Analyst for IDC and am on the advisory boards at two exciting startups, DB CyberTech and Proof Analytics.
