Edward Preston “EP” has an eclectic professional background that stretches from the trading floors of Wall Street to global cybersecurity. His stellar track record for building out tech start-ups over the last three decades, is attributed to his natural talent and passion for coaching and mentoring individuals and teams to peak performance.
At the start of the Internet revolution, EP took two years to help build out a sales organization for a data storage company that received #33 status for INC 500 fastest growing company. He then spent the next four years, working to achieve the best broker/equity ratio in the Western U.S., which he’s leveraged into 15 years of successful commodities and foreign exchange trading. It’s through this role, that EP gained an edge in understanding global business as it relates to market cycle analysis. To this day, he remains a Quant Trader for his own personal portfolio.
EP’s latest accomplishment was taking a unicorn start-up (Cylance) in the cybersecurity space to acquisition within five years (acquired by BlackBerry in 2019). EP was responsible for building out all the inside sales teams: Pipeline Generation, SMB, Renewals and Consumer units. He is a true hybrid in every sense of the word in the Sales and Marketing world. Perhaps, the one role that he cherishes the most, is being an evangelist for whatever business he puts his fingers into. His passion is contagious.
