Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) March 01, 2012
Xora, Inc., a global leader in mobile business applications, today announced that President and CEO Anne Bonaparte has been named one of the 100 Most Influential Women in Silicon Valley for 2012 by the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal. Bonaparte and the other Women of Influence will be featured in a special edition of the publication on April 6, 2012 and will be honored at a gala event on Thursday, April 26 in San Jose.
Xora CEO since December 2010, Bonaparte has a track record of building market-leading businesses and high-performing teams. Three times in the last decade prior to joining Xora, she was recruited into companies and guided them on to a fast track to revenue growth and profitability.
Said Bonaparte, “Any CEO will tell you that strong, committed teams are the key to success in any venture. In accepting this honor, I’d like to acknowledge all the amazing people I have worked with over the years, and especially to the team at Xora, which is deeply and passionately engaged in helping mobile businesses and their field employees work faster and smarter.”
Bonaparte brings the same passion and commitment to community service as she does to the corporate world. In 2010, Anne founded DeathWise, a nonprofit whose mission is to change the conversation about death and dying in America. DeathWise.org provides web-based content, tools, services and communities for people dealing with end-of-life issues – their own or those of loved ones – and has received donation from more than 250 individual donors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Before joining Xora, Bonaparte was President and CEO of Solidcore Systems, where she doubled revenues year-over-year, building Solidcore into the leading application white listing and IT policy enforcement solution provider until its acquisition by McAfee. Previously, she was President and CEO of two leading security software companies, Tablus and MailFrontier, which she grew from early revenue to market leadership positions.
Bonaparte also served as Vice President of International of VeriSign, where she restructured international operations and positioned the company for international growth during a tumultuous economy. She led global multi-channel teams at Autodesk and Hewlett-Packard, and guided management consulting projects at Bain & Company. And she founded Buzzsaw, Inc., the leading SaaS provider of design collaboration and project management applications for the architecture, engineering and construction industries.
