SVASE' "Learn from a Legend" is a unique program that brings together a world-class Founder or CEO with a maximum of 6 entrepreneurs. During an intensive three hour conversation over dinner, they discuss what it takes to be a CEO: personal leadership issues, the practical realities of running a company, and the quality of relationships that often define their future business life. It can be a deeply bonding experience, which often extends well beyond the dinner.

Stratton Sclavos is chairman of the board, president and chief executive officer of VeriSign, the leading provider of intelligent infrastructure services for the Internet and telecommunications networks.

Since joining the company as one of its first employees in July 1995, Mr. Sclavos has helped establish VeriSign as a global corporation relied upon by millions of consumers and businesses every day as they interact on the world’s voice and data networks. In January of 2006, VeriSign was added to the prestigious Standard and Poor’s 500 Index. Mr. Sclavos has led the company and its 4,000 passionate and committed employees through a decade of robust growth and technological innovation.

Over the past few years, Mr. Sclavos has been honored for his entrepreneurial leadership and management success by numerous organizations including Computerworld magazine, Morgan Stanley, Ernst and Young, and Forbes magazine. He also sits on the President’s National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) and is considered an industry thought leader in next-generation networks, cybersecurity, and converged telecommunications services. He holds a B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of California, Davis.

Mr. Sclavos also sits on the board of directors of several public companies including Intuit, Juniper Networks, and Salesforce.com. A lifelong Bay Area resident who is active in the community, Stratton and his wife Jody formed the Sclavos Family Foundation to support charitable efforts in children’s education and medical research.
