“I fully recommend Stuart. Having worked with him closely at Citrix Systems [for 3 years], Stuart was a Senior Architect and eventually the overall ShareFile Chief Architect. We worked directly together under my cross-functional Product Leadership Group where he provided key technical, architectural, and strategic insight critical to the execution of the business. 

Stuart possesses a unique set of skills that make him a highly valuable asset of any cloud-based engineering group. From a technical perspective, Stuart is as good as they come, he can go deep on any technical problem, but can also drive architecture at a high-level, a critical requirement of an always-on high-scale service. Stuart is a passionate people leader who invests heavily in building strong relationships with those he leads as well as his peers. This enables him to expand his scope of influence even further as he leads through inspiration. Further, he possesses a key understanding of the evolution of our industry, allowing to work on the right problems at the right time in the right way. 

Results are paramount with Stuart and it is clear: he was a huge reason for the repeated 20+% YoY growth of ShareFile to the >$200M business it is today. We […] are envious of any organization that can have the opportunity to work with him.”
