Sam Minnée, CEO and co-founder of SilverStripe keeps the company focused on its mission to reshape business through the web.
Not just a marketing slogan to be bandied about at conferences, organisational improvement is at the heart of the open-source platform that Sam and the SilverStripe team have created. This comes through in the work they do with their own clients, as well as the work of thousands of other SilverStripe developers across the world.
Prior to being appointed CEO in April 2011, Sam was SilverStripe’s Chief Technology Officer, where his focus on applying modern web development techniques to building technically complex websites and business applications has meant that the company has remained a key player in web innovation since its inception.
Sam has a BA in Computing and Philosophy from Victoria University. When he is not at work, he enjoys making cider, artisan cheese and 3D printed models — and like any good geek, he’s not too old for a few hours of Assassin’s Creed on a Sunday afternoon.
