I’ve learned so much from Martin M. Coyne II over the years…

By Phil Verghis on March 12, 2013

It is with great pleasure that I’d like to announce that Martin M. Coyne II has agreed to join us as a senior advisor to Dancing E. I first met Marty when he was elected a director  at Akamai in 2001, when we were still a small start up during some very challenging times. He has been on the Akamai board ever since, and Akamai just passed $1.4B in revenue in 2012.

Having someone with Marty’s deep and broad experience running multi-billion dollar businesses, and helping a company grow from start up to $1B plus in revenue is, as they say, priceless.
