Jonathan Schwartz is chief executive officer and president of Sun Microsystems, and a member of Sun's board of directors. He became Sun's CEO in 2006, succeeding the Company's co-founder and current chairman of the board, Scott McNealy.

Schwartz was promoted to president and chief operating officer in 2004, and managed all operational functions at Sun - from product development and marketing, to global sales and service. An inveterate blogger, Schwartz has led Sun's drive to engage the marketplace, and redefine corporate transparency.

A leader behind many of Sun's open source and standard setting initiatives, Jonathan's been an outspoken advocate for the network as a utility with more than just value for the computing industry - but as a tool for driving economic, social and political progress.

Prior to his position as COO, Schwartz served as Sun's executive vice president for software, its Chief Strategy Officer, and held a variety of leadership positions across product and corporate development. He joined Sun in 1996 after the Company acquired Lighthouse Design, where he was CEO and co-founder. Prior to that, Schwartz was with McKinsey & Co.
