Welcoming Michael Lock and Mark Gilbert to the Hearsay Social team

Today, I am proud to welcome two extraordinary executives to Hearsay Social’s management team. Michael Lock (pictured at right), one of the founding executives of Google Enterprises and a Silicon Valley luminary, has taken on the role of chief operating officer. We are incredibly excited to start working with Michael, who has spent the past decade turning Google’s software for businesses, called Google Apps, into a world-renowned, $1 billion-a-year business.
Additionally, today we welcome longtime Microsoft Corporation veteran Mark Gilbert, who has been named the company’s vice president of product. With over a decade of experience at Microsoft leading product teams for System Center, Visual Studio, and Bing, Mark will be an invaluable asset to our own product team.
