NEW YORK, June 14, 2011 – Boyden, a global leader in executive search, today released its latest issue of the Boyden Leadership Series featuring an in-depth interview with Dave Robbins, BigFix’s former Chairman, President and CEO.
The interview with Mr. Robbins, now CEO of Quantivo, highlights an insightful discussion on the benefits of operating under IBM’s global brand, his views on the new world of powerful mobile devices, the future of IT security, motivating global teams and best practices in managing turnarounds.
“Dave’s extensive executive leadership experience and strong insight in managing a company through a major turnaround are inspiring to many leaders who face the challenges of turnarounds and fiercely competitive markets,” said Trina Gordon, President and CEO of Boyden World Corporation.
“Dave possesses a keen understanding of the current IT security landscape and key business development and talent management issues imperative to maximizing performance,” said John Holland, Managing Director, Boyden San Francisco. “His success in bringing the BigFix brand to market now coupled with the global reach of IBM has been a phenomenal achievement.”
As CEO of Quantivo, a cloud-based behavior analytics company, Mr. Robbins brings more than 20 years of senior management experience at both public and private technology companies.
