The StandGARD Executive Team

Executive Leadership is more than who we were

Core Competencies

StandGARD has assembled our founding leadership team around three key tenets:

Proven Emerging Solutions Market Knowledge and Experience

Depth and Breadth of Target Market Prospects

Team Fit

As we dreamt about StandGARD and the Executive Team that could lift it to viability we considered only a few criteria.

The “It” we were looking for was a combination of global technology leadership experience with proven results, enthusiasm and ability to stay focused on the vision, an ability to present compelling new ideas and exhibit a willingness to adopt the ideas of others as their own. Ultimately, the “It” was a history of servant leadership that was stress tested and certified as authentic. None of our leaders have perfect winning record. But their perseverance and history of leadership successes made them our founding leadership team.
