"Many years ago, after three hectic startups, I got a call from MathWorks. That turned out to be a very good day for me. It is said that you should strive to have your life's work mean something. At MathWorks, our work contributes to the process of innovation. When I see the fantastic things our customers do when using our products, I am pleased to know that I play a small part in putting these powerful tools into the hands of intelligent and creative people. It is satisfying to play a role in a company that really does indirectly make the world just a little bit better."
