Mike Sullivan was named CEO of Acquia effective in December 2017 bringing 25 years of tech experience from notable companies like Hewlett Packard Enterprise with him. Sullivan was recognized by Ernst & Young as an Entrepreneur of the Year finalist in both 2000 and 2004. Earlier in his career, he was a software developer for Raytheon. He holds a degree in computer information systems from Bentley University.
I chat with Mike about how brands are reaching customers right now and how they will in our immediate future. We also discuss the role of voice-enabled tech which is a significant growth area for Acquia. During our conversation, Mike highlights how consolidation moves by major players like Adobe through their recent acquisition of Magento commerce could be bad for businesses. He talks about the pitfalls of trapping your organization in a single vendor ecosystem that could stifle innovation across your company.
