  1. Neil Carson brings to Yellowbrick technical vision and execution, speed of delivery for disruptive technologies, willingness to buck trends and revisit & challenge conventional wisdom. Neil is a truly unique and visionary technology leader who has the vision to see where the market is going and weave together multiple technologies to solve complex problems.
