Sean has a diverse background with over 15 years of management experience in entrepreneurial start-ups and Fortune 500 organizations.

Sean graduated with a BS in Computer Science from the University of Maryland and relocated to Raleigh with IBM. After earning his MBA from Duke, Sean founded and was CEO of Netstation, which was acquired by Nortel Networks. Later he started WindWire, a wireless software & service company, acquired in 2003.
