“CTEK hired a new CEO, Caleb Barlow, who until recently was a VP for IBM’s IT Security division and founded it’s “X-Force Incident Response” team. I’ve seen models of success and models of failure when small companies hire large company folks as CEOs. Since it’s impossible to know the future, we will have to wait and see. The current CEO Mac Macmillan made no secret of his desire to retire. Mac is expected to remain both on the Board and a large shareholder. I sent Caleb a note welcoming him to our company; it’s appended here.”
