As CEO of RightScale, Michael is responsible for setting the company’s vision and ensuring customer satisfaction. He has played a major role in helping promote openness and transparency in the Cloud marketplace. Prior to RightScale, he served as CEO at several Internet Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies and as executive vice president at eFax.com. He was also a panelist at the 2011 Cloud Channel Summit
