Description

Mark McClain, CEO, and Co-founder, SailPoint, has over 20 years of experience developing and leading innovative technology companies. Under Mark’s direction, SailPoint has grown from a collection of fresh ideas into a publicly recognized leader in the identity management software market.

Mark recently released his first book Joy and Success at Work, which delves into his history and experience as a tech entrepreneur; navigating complex market conditions, boards, IPOs and scaling; trying to disrupt an industry while ensuring a strong culture for employees; how to embrace key employees’ exits and why long-term success starts with hiring.

When it comes to starting up and scaling, Mark stresses the importance of building your core team: the first twenty-five to fifty people you hire are critical to future success not only from a business perspective but also from a cultural perspective. Think about building a company like a construction project – you have to lay a strong foundation first as everything that follows will rest on top.

I invited Mark onto Tech Talks Daily talk about all of this and also discuss some of the core concepts he explores within his book.
