Steve is a product management process coach, author, speaker, and advisor. His approach is based on the belief that minimal process and simple templates result in a nimble product marketing and management team.
Steve has been working within the high-technology arena since 1979 with experience in technical, sales, and marketing management positions at companies specializing in enterprise and desktop hardware and software. His market and technical savvy allowed him to rise rapidly through the ranks from Product Manager to Chief Marketing Officer. In his various technical marketing roles, he has launched dozens of product offerings. Steve draws heavily on his marketing and sales experience while his quick wit adds an element of fun to his workshops and speeches.
Before founding Under10, Steve was a Pragmatic Marketing instructor for over 15 years and personally trained thousands of product and executive teams.

Tom has started six companies since 1988, including WebSurveyor a pioneer in online surveys and two-time Inc. 500 award winner (2004, 2005). He's done it all, from writing code to running a sales organization, from begging VCs for start-up funding to IPOs, from an idea on a napkin to multi-million dollar product lines.
Having spent 30 years in technology, Tom sometimes thinks he's seen it all until someone comes along with a cool new product that makes life just a little bit easier. His early career was primarily mainframe based technical programming, followed by several years as a product manager for enterprise software vendors focused on client-server computing, and most recently (15+ years) in development, marketing, and executive roles for internet-based applications.
When away from the office, Tom likes to hang out at the beach or take long walks with twin yellow labs, Splash and Breeze.
