Mihir Shah, CEO, Drobo
As the CEO of Drobo, Mihir Shah and his team have grown revenue 50 percent sequentially, quarter over quarter. Shah also serves on the board of Enact Systems Inc., a leading vertical SaaS company focused on the renewable energy industry. Before joining Drobo, he held senior positions at BlueFin Technologies, Brocade and IBM. Shah has completed over 50 acquisitions and investments in his career that total more than $5 billion in value. Drobo caters its business to midmarket consumers such as "prosumers" and small businesses that seek enterprise-quality storage devices without the enterprise industrial price. Issues such as data security and storage space are no longer just the concern of large corporations, Shah stated. Rather, these data storage problems are concerns that everyone has in both their personal and professional life. Shah explains that while Drobo was engineered with the most sophisticated and advanced technology, it has designed the product so that those without tech experience could still easily use it.
