Prior to VeriSign, Landry was Vice President of Client Delivery at R4 Global Solutions, where he was accountable for all service delivery and client relationships. He has also held executive roles at QuantumShift and Cambridge Technology Partners. Landry has a BS degree from the University of San Francisco.
