Sun Microsystems, Inc.

As CTO, David is responsible for spearheading the strategic development of Sun's consumer device and mobile systems business, including software development, standards policy, and investments and acquisitions.

Since joining Sun in 1993, David has worked closely with the wireless industry to advance next-generation mobile data services. His many achievements in this arena include the Pixo acquisition and initiatives to help customers such as Vodafone and Nokia define their mobile data services systems architecture.
