He is a domain expert, a trusted advisor to clients all over the world, and he will be a great addition to Marko’s growing team. We plan to solve some of the most pressing industry needs, and we see a gap now for a big, new and well-capitalized entrant, in a space that is increasingly crowded with small niche providers.”
