ViziApps is pleased to welcome Michael Hackney to our leadership team. Michael has joined ViziApps as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Vice President of Products. Michael, who most recently served as Vice President of Products at RailComm, Inc., will be responsible for leading the expansion of ViziApps’ platform strategy and development. Michael succeeds Michael Kuperstein, ViziApps’ Co-founder and CTO, who passed away earlier this year.

“As a strong partner for our leadership team, Michael brings a passion for the total customer experience,” said George Adams, Co-founder and CEO of ViziApps. “Together with his outstanding software development track record, Michael’s expertise will be paramount as we expand our vision for No Code Visual Rapid Mobile App Development for Citizen Developers to its full potential.”

Michael has built and led high performance engineering teams in companies including RailComm, Infobright, and EMC (now Dell EMC). At RailComm, he led the design and development efforts and product marketing strategies for Insight - a railroad-focused predictive analytics platform built on Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Prior to that, Michael was responsible for Infobright’s product and market strategy to capitalize on Internet of Things machine-generated database analytics opportunities, and he served in the EMC CTO Office following EMC’s acquisition of Authentica, Inc.

Michael is passionate about the total customer experience from product design and usability to full life-cycle customer satisfaction.

“I’m very excited to join the ViziApps team and lead the charge on the product front. I strongly believe that mobile application development today is gated primarily by app development complexity,” said Michael Hackney. “The ViziApps platform cracks the code for No Code Visual Rapid Mobile App Development and promises to be a leading factor to accelerate mobile app development in the enterprise."

Michael has a BA from Wittenberg University and a PhD from the University of Colorado. Dr. Hackney did his postdoctoral research at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
