R.J. Pittman

I am currently working for Apple on some new and exciting projects for the company. Previously, I worked for Google across a broad range of search products, driving innovation for company’s next generation consumer search properties. Before that I was the co-founder and CEO of Groxis, the advanced search engine technology company that created the industry’s first graphical information interface, the GII, to hundreds of prominent content services including Google, Yahoo, and Amazon.

I have spent the last two decades building Internet software companies to help accelerate the evolution of a commerce-enabled Web. I have applied this experience to the creation many pioneering Internet companies and projects in the field of web search, social networking, e-payments, and online trading. I have raised $50M in venture capital for the companies I founded or co-founded since 1992, completing two IPOs, and the sale of two other companies. I have also led e-business transformations at large multi-billion dollar corporations including McKesson (NYSE: MCK), and Interface Global (NASDAQ: IFSIA).

I am an experienced, hands-on company chief executive and entrepreneur. I have managed my companies with a balance of deep technical expertise and product vision along with sound business principles to create value and produce profitable, sustainable ventures.
