Description

Mark Hoffman grew up in Minnesota and got his Bachelor's degree from the US Military Academy. After serving in the US Army for 6 years, primarily as a logistics officer, he took MBA courses and then joined the Amdahl Corporation. He describes his work at Amdahl and then at Britton-Lee where he managed the manufacturing, product support and maintenance activities. He left Britton-Lee to join Bob Epstein to form Sybase where he was the CEO. It was an outstanding growth story, but with some changes in the company management, he left and became interested in Intraware and then became the CEO of Commerce One. Finally, he discusses joining Everdream as the CEO and some of his personal activities including the Althea Foundation.
