Executive Perspectives: CEO of NexDefense

Guest: Michael Sayre

“Mike talks about his keys to success and about his current company, NexDefense. In an environment where cyber security is a hot topic, Mike’s company is positioned to help resolve one of their biggest risk elements. Mike will share his insights about being an executive and growing NexDefense.
I selected Mike as my guest today because he has been a role model for me for many years. He consistently demonstrates a high degree of emotional intelligence combined with a level of analytical rigor that makes him unique in my experience in growing and turning companies around. 1. What is NexDefense and what needs does it fill/problems does it solve in the marketplace? 2. What attracted you to this company? 3. You have been CEO and/or President of multiple companies that you have led through major transformations – what would you want to share with our leaders about your most valuable lessons in this process? 4. What is the culture and how does that contribute to success?”
