SiCortex, Inc. Names Christopher Stone President and CEO
Posted by Ken Farmer, Monday August 04 2008 @ 01:44PM EDT

MAYNARD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SiCortex, Inc., a leading provider of energy-efficient, plug-in-anywhere high performance computers, today announced the appointment of Christopher Stone as president and chief executive officer. John Mucci, the founding CEO, will continue to serve on the SiCortex board of directors.

“With nearly three decades of experience, half of which was focused on building technology businesses, Chris brings to SiCortex a wealth of expertise that is sure to translate technology differentiation into financial success,” said SiCortex board member and Ethernet inventor Bob Metcalfe. “His background complements the deep HPC experience that already exists within the company, and the resulting collaboration will undoubtedly be a key asset in building SiCortex’s market position.”

Stone most recently served as president and chief executive officer of StreamServe, Inc., a global leader in dynamic document composition, management and delivery solutions. Prior to StreamServe, Stone held several executive positions at Novell, Inc., culminating in his role as vice chairman in the office of the CEO. In 1999, he founded Tilion, Inc. and developed a software service that streamlined the logistics supply chain. While serving as CEO of Object Management Group, the largest software development standardization group, Stone’s team invented CORBA, a distributed computing and object technology standard used universally in the technology sector.

“High performance computing is in an exciting period of innovation underpinned by a growing need for higher performing, increasingly energy-efficient and more accessible machines,” said Stone. “I share SiCortex’s passion for applying technology to pave a new way in a market ripe for improvement and advancement. I look forward to working with the SiCortex executive team to maximize this opportunity to its fullest extent —growing the company and redefining high performance computing in the process.”

Stone was named one of Ziff Davis Media’s Top 50 People in High Tech in 1999. He also received the honor of being named a “Top Ten Entrepreneur” by Red Herring in 2001, and in 2003 received the Overall Top Innovator and Top Linux Product Award from VARBusiness magazine. Stone holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of New Hampshire and an AMP/MBA from Harvard Business School, where he is a member of the Alumni Mentor Program.
