Mike Grossman Named As New CEO Of SugarSync
SugarSync is a cloud storage startup that has hired former Intuit vice president of marketing and business development (Financial Services division) Mike Grossman as the CEO of the company. SugarSync competes against large storage companies such as Dropbox and Google Drive. Former SugarSync CEO Laura Yecies said that she would be resigning back in February. However she said she would help the company’s board of directors find a new CEO.
SugarSync offers cloud storage and applications on the web, iOS, and Android. Back in November, SugarSync upgraded their app to support drag and drop sharing and cross-device search. SugarSync started in 2008 and raised around $60 million in funding from Draper Fisher Jurvetson, ORIX Venture Finance, and Sigma Partners.
Before working at Intuit Grossman worked as the executive chairman of Attributor, an e-book anti-piracy company that was acquired by Digimarc in December 2012. “SugarSync has helped millions of people like you keep their information accessible and in sync,” said Grossman in a blog post. “I’m looking forward to leading our team in taking the product and the business to the next level.”
