Michael S. Saddik


Michael S. Saddik is an accomplished strategic executive bringing over 20 years of extensive experience to his work in the technology field. Saddik has been awarded both Red Herring North America and Red Herring Global recognitions for his endeavors to date.

Saddik has a long history of interest in software and application development for the construction industry. He developed his first mobile application for the construction industry in 1997.  At the time his company was one of only two companies able to offer that level of software in the United States.  As technology evolved, so did Saddik’s leadership in the industry and his eye for products that were ahead of the curve.”

A consistent theme throughout Saddik’s leadership career has been engaging companies to perform above and beyond their expectations.  As founding team member of a successful start-up, Saddik led his company to dominate its market segment, achieving national recognition as an Inc. 500 company (#104 in 2005) and succeeding in a successful M&A exit.  Underperforming departments and teams have given him an opportunity to be instrumental in their turnaround, instituting guidelines and initiatives resulting, for example, in 300% revenue increase over two years in one case.  In another case, he directed the growth of companies with elements of new monthly reoccurring revenue (MRR) generation, including sales, and has led corporate branding and marketing initiatives.  Additionally, his M&A experience spans due diligence engagements for nine companies by various investor groups and corporate buyers.

Michael has served as a Board Member for The Lupus Foundation of Northern California, a non-profit organization, since 2005. He holds an MBA from Pepperdine University with an emphasis on executive leadership and certification by Columbia Business School in General Management.
