QUENTIN GALLIVAN

CEO

Throughout the past 25 years, Gallivan has guided numerous industry-leading enterprise platform and cloud-based technology companies through high-growth phases. He has established an impeccable record of strategic expansion, operational excellence, and profitable exits. As an early executive at Verisign, Gallivan was instrumental in growing the company from a $20M revenue cloud security company serving the mid-market to a $1.5B revenue global cloud infrastructure powerhouse providing critical security and infrastructure to the Global 2000. Gallivan’s leadership was instrumental in Verisign’s successful IPO. Additionally, as CEO of Pentaho, Gallivan increased revenue by over 600 percent and transformed the company from an SMB open source business intelligence (BI) platform company into the market-leading big data analytics company. This ultimately led to Pentaho’s sale to Hitachi in 2015.
