I am pleased to announce that Cliff Beer has joined Epik as Chief Financial Officer and General Counsel. Cliff and I go way back. Cliff joined my previous company, Global Market Insite (GMI) in 2000. He was with GMI from 2000 to 2006, during which time we grew annual sales from $3 million to $60 million. GMI could not have done it without him.
Cliff is a rare talent. He is a talented CFO, a strong attorney, as well a quality guy with high integrity. As a CFO, Cliff spent part of his career in venture capital and also presided over three rounds of venture financing at GMI. As an attorney, Cliff is well equipped to support the company’s growing needs in terms of dealmaking, intellectual property, and corporate governance.
We’ll make sure to get Cliff out to a domain conference so he can begin to learn the industry first-hand. I also expect he will be connecting with the leading legal experts in our industry as he comes up to speed. Thanks in advance for welcoming Cliff to the domain industry.
