“Zero to 100 … Real Quick: How a Four-week Gamble Turned Into a $13 Million Enterprise”

Join Cireson Co-Founders Paul Sutton and Shaun Ericson as they discuss their journey over the past 5 years, starting as a bootstrapped company to managing its meteoric growth, landing them on the Inc. 500 List. From brainstorming their (crazy) idea to reinventing their business all over again, Paul and Shaun will lay bare the scars they’ve sustained and share their insight on strategies, experiences, and proven principles every business needs to be aware of as it goes through the maturation process in its respective marketplace.

Shaun Ericson:

With over 13 years of Systems, Asset and Service Management experience, Shaun’s passionate pursuit of technical brilliance in the System Center space led to the creation of the first-ever System Center app store, which now serves as a SCSM platform necessity for hundreds of clients across the globe. His vision to create a new standard for best-in-breed solutions shaped Cireson into the worldwide powerhouse that it is today.

Paul Sutton:

Paul leads the global sales, marketing, and business development strategies based in San Francisco. He was born in Belgium with an English upbringing, and has been California dreamin’ since 2004. Paul’s worldly experience results in an open and unique approach to customer service and business management, with an ability to understand and appreciate the passions of others.

Paul has over 16 years in the software industry working with IT Service and Asset Management organizations such as Computer Science Corporation, Touchpaper, LANDESK, and Axios.

Prior to launching Cireson, Shaun steeped himself in the technology industry, working with well-known companies including Peregrine, Remedy, Altiris, LANDesk and Axios. Since that time, he has dedicated himself to all things System Center.
