A business that doesn’t take advantage of cloud computing and the ability to manage office functions and customer communication through the cloud is losing out on a huge opportunity. In this segment host Tom D’Auria speaks with Brian Donahoo, CEO of AppFolio a company that creates easy-to-use, web-based software that helps small and mid-sized businesses more effectively market, manage and grow their business.

The buck stops with Brian. He is a hands-on CEO and really enjoys building teams and growing a successful company. When he isn’t working you’ll find him running in a marathon, stand-up paddling or mountain biking in Santa Barbara.

Brian was the Sr. Vice President for Products and Services at Expertcity/CitrixOnline from 1999 to 2007. He was part of the original team, growing the company from early startup to $240 million in annual revenue. He led the planning and launch of GoToMyPC, GoToAssist, GoToMeeting, and GoToWebinar and these successful SaaS products are now used by millions of people around the world.
