As CEO of LiveOffice, Nick Mehta’s focus is on continuing to grow LiveOffice’s market leadership in the software-as-a-service messaging industry. Serving in senior operating roles for public and private companies in the enterprise and consumer technology markets for much of his career, Nick has built a well-respected reputation in the email and messaging industry. He spent more than five years at Symantec Corporation (NASDAQ: SYMC) and Veritas Software Corporation (acquired by Symantec in 2005), where he served as vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Vault (formerly KVS) information archiving and discovery software business from its acquisition in 2004 until 2007. During this time, the business grew from $23 million in annual sales in 2004 to more than $200 million in 2007 and received recognition from ESG, Gartner, Forrester, IDC and Radicati as being the leading product in the “on-premise” email archiving market. Nick has also held other roles leading product management for all email-related businesses at Symantec and previously for CommandCentral, a suite of storage management solutions.
Prior to Veritas, Nick ran product management at XDegrees, a venture-funded storage software startup which was acquired by Microsoft. Before that, Nick cofounded his first business during college in the mid 1990s, a venture-funded online golf retailer called Chipshot.com that became one of the top 20 online retailers of its time. Most recently, Nick served as an entrepreneur-in-residence at venture capital firm Trinity Ventures.
Nick holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biochemical Sciences and a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Harvard University.
