Person Details

Update

Steve has been in the technology business for nearly 25 years. The first 15 years of his career were in telecom, IT and systems integration – he served at companies like GTE, IBM and AT&T. He broke into the Internet marketplace in 1996, when he joined Hotmail as VP of Marketing, Sales and Business Development. After Microsoft acquired Hotmail at the end of 1997, he became the director of business planning and media programming for MSN. At MSN, he was a key player in the conversion of MSN.com to a portal, the acquisition of LinkExchange, and the creation of Passport.

In mid-1999, Steve and two colleagues co-founded Octopus Software, the award-winning content integration platform that was eventually acquired by Ask Jeeves in 2001.

Steve has a B.A. in Computer Science from Dartmouth College.
