Asterisk Announces 4 Comments

I’ve been with Digium for just over seven years, and it’s been an incredible experience that I wouldn’t have traded for anything. When Mark Spencer invited me to visit Digium (and Huntsville) in early¬†2005, I could not have dreamed that I’d end up working for such an exciting, innovative company, finding a wife, and meeting hundreds of people (many of whom are now friends) around the world. It’s been a time of tremendous personal and career growth, and my wonderful colleagues at Digium and in the Asterisk open source community have been directly responsible for most of that.

Recently, though, I’ve been presented an opportunity to take on a new challenge and this has resulted in my acceptance of a new job, in a new industry. In the middle of September, I’ll start working for Bloomberg, L.P., in the Office of the CTO, helping to lead their nascent open source initiative. I’ll be working to bring the power of open source software, open standards, and community building to the financial market data services industry, where it is sorely needed¬†(and overdue). Michelle and I will be relocating to the greater New York City area, but Michelle will continue in her role as Digium’s in-house counsel. Because of our need to relocate, I’ll only be at Digium until August 8th, although I’ll be in Huntsville until around Labor Day.

This is yet another incredibly exciting, career changing opportunity in my life, and I can’t wait to see what it will bring. I’ll be forever thankful for the opportunity that Digium and the Asterisk community provided me to learn, grow and find the place where my skills and experience are the most valuable (to both myself and my employer).

  • No Kevin, we thank you for the fish, for sharing the knowledge and for having the patience… Good luck on your new journey!

    P.S. As a token of our appreciation, just a word and we’ll make the life of the new Director of Software Technologies miserable!
