Marc J. Fleury

Dr. Marc Fleury previously founded JBoss, an open-source application server, in 1999 during a time when major players thought open source was dead. Marc proved the naysayers wrong, turning JBoss into a commercially viable business and, in seven years, sold JBoss to Red Hat (eventually acquired by IBM) for $350 Million. He holds a PhD in Theoretical Physics from École Polytechnique in Paris.
