Meet the Executive Team
Jay loves brainstorming with Gorilla Logic’s engineers on new technologies – helping them to develop creative, well thought out solutions for their customers. A startup veteran who ran development organizations for Leopard (acquired by Ogilvy Mather), Symplified (acquired by RSA/EMC) and TapInfluence, Jay has “an absolute blast” leading Gorilla Logic’s talented team of developers, software engineers and scrum masters.
Rick’s 20 years in the tech industry have focused largely on IT services. His experience involves creating finance teams that are capable of maturing with a scaling company, managing new system implementations to increase efficiency and building long-term relationships with clients and partners.
Vice President of Delivery
Since joining Gorilla Logic in 2014, Mario has transformed the Costa Rica development center from a 3-person startup to a thriving 450-person nearshore operation, and has now developed our second Nearshore Development Center in Medellín, Colombia which is growing quickly.
VP of Global Talent Operations
From an early age, Tess knew that working with people sparked her passion far more than driving the tractor on her family’s farm in the summer. With a bachelor’s degree in business administration and marketing from the University of South Dakota completed, Tess began her very successful people-focused career. Starting with sales and recruiting in retail, Tess quickly grew into leadership roles in talent acquisition and management in the technology industry.
VP Marketing & Business Development
Cindy’s natural curiosity about people and places has shaped her career as a marketing leader, executive coach and global traveler. These experiences have honed her ability to see greater potential in people and projects while clarifying and delivering on an organization’s vision. Keenly interested in the evolution of marketing as an art and science, Cindy previously initiated the development of DigitalGlobe’s demand generation center. She continues to leverage that expertise in her role as Gorilla Logic’s VP of Marketing and Business Development.
VP of Client Success
As Gorilla Logic’s Executive responsible for new client acquisition and growth, Chris leverages his business acumen and passion for helping others. He coaches the sales team and guides Gorilla Logic clients in reaching their maximum potential through partnering on enterprise application development.
VP of Operations
From small-ish, scrappy, and highly successful startups like SolidFire to the largest of big tech like Microsoft, Susan’s operational adventures have led her and her family around the world. With a strong affinity for people and “connecting the human chain of activity in a way that makes sure everything is moving quickly,” Susan has led companies to evolve and mature how they work day-to-day and how they build to support growth.
