Joel Vincent

I am currently the Director of Product Marketing for Aerohive Networks working on moving their product marketing and positioning to the next level. I am also the co-producer and founder of the international Wine Bloggers Conference (focusing on the North America edition) which brings together the most vibrant community of wine writers in the world.

Prior to Aerohive, I led product marketing and management teams at Meru Networks, Cisco, CopperCom, Netgear, and Lucent where I successfully brought over 65 products and services to market worldwide, garnering awards ranging from Comdex best-in-show to a nomination for a ComputerWorld Smithsonian award.

I was also partner and one of the founders of VinTank - a Digital Strategy and Technology consultancy. I was in charge of Marketing Strategy both for the firm itself and for our clients.  In my spare time, I the founded the OpenWine Consortium (the OWC), a global trade association whose mission is to partner technology with the wine industry to open new avenues of business and networking in the wine world.  I recently sold the OWC to FohBoh and it is now known as "FohBoh Wine".

I focus purely on what it takes to move from a robust, extensible technology to high-value, business-changing solution.
