He sold the company to GE and went on to lead GE Digital’s Platform Monetization and Customer Development strategy. Earlier in his career, Hans held global sales, product management, corporate strategy, and customer success leadership positions at several enterprise software and hardware companies, including Pivotal Software, VMware, and EMC Corporation. In his spare time, Hans leads Seattle’s 4200+ member IoT Hub Meetup group.
