VMIX Names Turnaround CEO
San Diego’s VMIX, a venture-backed startup that provides online video platform technology, today named a Bay Area turnaround management consultant, Patrick J. Burns, as its president and CEO. Burns replaces Mike Glickenhaus, who was named to the same position at VMIX two years ago, and whose departure was not mentioned in today’s statement or previously disclosed by the company. VMIX says Burns “brings over 20 years of experience as CEO at high-growth software, hardware and medical-device companies” and suggests he intends to broaden the company’s strategy beyond the media focus that Glickenhaus outlined for me last year. In his Linkedin profile, Burns describes himself as a turnaround and crisis management specialist, and says he is currently managing director of Neocon Associates.
