Joe Sullivan – Uber
Uber recently picked up former Facebook chief security officer Joe Sullivan to be its first chief security officer. Sullivan, who has been with Facebook for over half of the social network’s life, is being charged with improving safety measures for drivers and passengers as well as overseeing the security of Uber’s driver data. Prior to Facebook, Sullivan was head of security at PayPal/eBay and at the assistant U.S. attorney. Talk about a go-getter!

At ShopKeep he will focus on building new relationships for the iPad-capable POS system for bars, restaurants and retail stores. Prior to this, Sean was an early stage startup consultant of business development for the last couple of years, which he will still continue to do. His unique experience in consulting with over five startups in the past will surely give ShopKeep a leg up in the game. Congrats Sean!
