My name is Jon van Bronkhorst, and I’m the Executive Director of Product Marketing for the retail group at Seagate Technology. I deal with the Seagate products that you find at retail places like Best Buy, Fry’s, Tiger Direct, Amazon and others. Anything that comes in a cardboard retail box that says Seagate on it… I am lucky enough to deal with those. The fun part of my job is that, as a true geek, I get to help develop products that take the best of technologies and deliver them in easy to use consumer solutions. I’ve been dealing with computers and technology products since the 1970’s. I started taking digital photographs in 1997. Worked on my first personal computer in 1978. Got my first cell phone in 1989. Yes… I’m an early adopter!
