Macheen Taps High Tech Veteran As New CEO

Austin-based Macheen said this morning that it has named a new CEO and President, high tech veteran Greg Stock. Stock was most recently Chairman and CEO of Vovici, which was acquired last year by Verint Systems; he also served at Mirage Networks (acquired by Trustwave), along with other companies. Richard Schwartz continues as Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer. Macheen develops a mobile application service which allows consumers to connect to the Internet without having to deal with the vagaries of signing up with a local service provider, mobile broadband, or specific wireless services. The firm is backed by DFJ Mercury Venture Partners, GemVentures, North Bridge Venture Partners, Qualcomm Ventures, as well as angels.
