As senior vice president and general manager for the Citrix Online Services division, Brett Caine has inspired a strong customer-centric focus. Caine is one of the high-tech industry’s leading advocates for transforming how people work, increasing productivity while enhancing work/life balance. From providing state-of-the art offices to enabling virtual work styles – a practice he and the Online Services division coined “workshifting,” his views are translating into remarkable value for businesses of all sizes.
Caine joined the Citrix Online Services division in 2004, when Citrix acquired Expertcity, Inc. He was chosen to lead the division a few months later. The application of his vision for transforming business by delivering simpler, better ways to connect and collaborate online has resulted in record performance. Under his leadership, the Online Services division has grown revenues from $40 million in 2004 to nearly $400 million in 2010. The Online Services division is now among the top five global SaaS providers, with worldwide market leadership in remote access and IT services, and the number two global provider in web collaboration services.
Prior to joining Citrix, Caine held executive positions with several leading software companies, including Openwave Systems and Clarify, Inc. He holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from New York University.
