Outside directors Peter Behrendt, Robert Bunting, Ryan Carr, Richard Herring and John Metzger join founding executives — CEO and Chairman Stephen Wood, Chief Analytics Officer Joseph Bermudez, Jr. and CMO Charles Herring — on the newly formed board.
After escaping from Soviet Bloc East Germany as a young man, Peter Behrendt went on to a 26-year career at IBM before joining Exabyte to become its CEO and chairman, leading the data storage company to become one of America’s fastest growing public companies in the ‘90s. Previously, Behrendt served on the boards of Western Digital, Virtela, SMT and CenterBeam.
Scientist, educator and serial entrepreneur Robert Bunting co-founded the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) Foundation, which began the commercialization program of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). Bunting led the establishment of Canada’s space company, MacDonald Dettwiler and Associates (MDA), in the US; founded Waterstone, and co-founded Crystal Diagnostics. He is noted for creating winning business plans including those for Intermap Technologies, Adam Aircraft, Space Imaging and DigitalGlobe.
Ryan Carr was a founding partner and chief investment officer at Sparta Asset Management, a high-performing, small-cap investment boutique. With some of the nation’s largest pension funds as its clients, Carr led the firm’s asset growth to over $750 million. Prior to Sparta, Carr was a senior portfolio manager at Oppenheimer & Co. where he founded the firm’s U.S. Small Cap Equity Strategy product in 1995.
Richard N. Herring served as a senior executive at Ball Aerospace in positions including CIO and president of the Space Systems Division. After
