Prior to his sabbatical he was Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing for several years where he directed the development of EMC’s sales force and market positioning.

He returned to EMC at the request of the Company’s Board in early 1998 to assume a 10-month role as Executive Vice President of Products where he managed marketing, manufacturing and product development through a transition to a new organizational structure. Having achieved the Board’s objectives, he retired from active employment at EMC at the end of 1998. He holds degrees in marketing and computer science from Boston College.
