Bill has 28 years of experience in telecom, internet, and network security. He began his career as an Account Executive for AT&T and then, figuring the internet sounded like a promising concept, gave up his suits for jeans to work in Sales for a startup that became the first commercial internet provider. It was a good decision as UUNET (Now Verizon Business), grew to carry approximately 50% of the world's internet traffic. Within 3 years of starting, he was promoted to VP level where he built and led the core sales team responsible for sales of Internet access and network security solutions to all Commercial, Wholesale Carrier/ISPs, and the Federal and State Governments across a 10 state region, including Washington, DC. In this role, he also built specialized teams selling Web Hosting, Security Solutions, VAR/Reseller Programs, as well as managed field offices primarily focused on IP VPN and Complex Corporate Dial Solutions.
Steven Shippa, CTO
Steve has almost 30 years of experience in internet, network security, and systems engineering. Steve began his career as a Network Engineer for Telos, where he spent time as a system administrator of Mac, Windows & Unix systems as well as gaining experience with Cisco routers, local and wide area networking, and where he first experienced the "Internet."
Steve then joined internet startup UUNET Technologies (Now, Verizon Business), the world's first commercial internet provider, as a Sales Engineer. Over the next few years, Steve built and scaled the Sales Engineering team from 3 to about 150 headcount, globally, and oversaw the support and solutions design for sales revenue growth from 7M to over 6 Billion USD.
