AB 132: Attention CEOs – The Right Attitude Is Paranoid Optimism!

August 29, 2017

Joel Trammell’s leadership as a CEO has resulted in successful nine-figure acquisitions by two Fortune 500 companies. As CEO of network management software firm NetQoS, he delivered 31 consecutive quarters of double-digit revenue growth and nearly $60 million in revenue. CA Technologies acquired the company in 2009, generating more than 10x return on capital to its private equity investors. In 2010, he co-founded Cache IQ, a storage software company, which NetApp acquired two years later.

Joel founded his most recent company, Khorus, with the mission of helping chief executives run their businesses as effectively as possible. A 25+ year software veteran, he is also chairman emeritus of the Austin Technology Council and co-founder and managing partner of private equity firm Lone Rock Technology Group. In addition, he serves on the boards of several public, private, and non-profit companies.

Joel blogs at TheAmericanCEO.com, and writes regular columns for Entrepreneur.com and Inc.com. His book, The CEO Tightrope, is a complete handbook to the critical chief executive role.

Joel holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Louisiana Tech University and is a former instructor at the Naval Nuclear Power School. He lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Cathy, and has three children. This episode is sponsored by Dunkin’ Donuts, Right Networks, and Liberty Tax.
