"I worked with Verisign from 2009-2011, originally as a CMO-in-Residence consultant, eventually becoming their SVP. Marketing managing a global team of 130+ marketing professionals and consultants. We repositioned the company twice in 12 months because of a major divestiture sale of our Authentication BU to Symantec. Team and company was extremely dedicated; collaborative across teams; respected a POV (point-of-view); fast moving; a lot of self-starters; compensated well for great work."
