Who We Are


Our Directors bring an extraordinary wealth of skills and backgrounds to the Board. From Subra Suresh, an acclaimed scientist whose background in microfluidics gives him key understanding into the future of technologies, including 3D printing, to Stacy Brown-Philpot, former CEO of TaskRabbit, a company at the forefront of today’s personal services-oriented disruptive technology boom, and a member of the investment committee of the SB Opportunity Fund, a $100 million venture fund for outstanding Black, Latinx, and Native American company founders, our Board members are advising us based on real world experiences. Jami Miscik brings significant leadership and experience in international affairs, intelligence and risk assessment from roles in the private and public sectors, including a distinguished career at the Central Intelligence Agency. Their skills are complementary. Chip Bergh’s experience at Procter & Gamble and now Levi Strauss means he can instantly grasp the complexities of our supply chain and Richard Clemmer brings expertise in high-tech industries, including semiconductor, storage, e-commerce and software companies, from his experience at NXP Semiconductors and Agere Systems. Shumeet Banerji and Mary Anne Citrino, on the other hand, both come from financial industry careers, lending keen eyes to our financial management, risk oversight and investment strategy. Former public company CEOs Stephanie Burns and Robert Bennett lend the benefit of their experience at the helms of companies and Aida Alvarez provides a perspective from the field of government. Together, these Directors and their skills help us to keep reinventing and provide proper oversight of management’s execution of our strategy.
