  1. The IoT space is fragmented and nascent, and there are many players operating here. Zach has led from the front, as a thought leader, founder and CEO, setting the strategic vision for his company, and also directly influencing the IoT space, and how businesses and organizations derive value from IoT. As a company employee, I can attest to the inclusive, diverse, open and transparent company culture, Zach has worked very hard to implement. It is incredibly rewarding to work at such a company, and I look forward to working under his leadership and stewardship.
