Co-CEOs, can this concept ever work? According to research, the
answer is no – it almost never works. According to Paul Kenyon and
Mark Austin, the answer is yes – it’s the only way Avecto would
have achieved the success it has to date, securing 8 million
endpoints. The two have been running Avecto together in cohesion
for the past decade, but this isn’t their first time leading
Mark and Paul worked together as co-founders of the company AppSense. While they didn’t know exactly what technology they wanted to create for their next company, they did know that for their next endeavor the only way it would work is if they were Co-CEOs. Paul and Mark both believe the most successful leaders find their opposite and learn from them every day.
I invited them onto the show today to learn more about their tech startup story and explore the concept of Co-CEOs and how Paul and Mark have made this structure successful.
