We are pleased to announce that Diane Honda has received a GC Impact Award. Diane serves as Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary for Barracuda. The GC Impact Awards recognize the in-house department heads at California companies overseeing the most significant, and successful, transactions during 2013, including initial public offerings, strategic acquisitions, or both.
Diane joined Barracuda in 2012 and has guided us through the acquisitions of SignNow and C2C, and led us through our IPO of 2013. Prior to joining Barracuda, Diane held a similar position with Extreme Networks, as well as senior legal leadership positions with other private and public companies. She started her career as a software engineer at Hewlett Packard, and has held management positions in product development, customer support, and information technology.
One of the cool things that Diane has brought to us was Barracuda SignNow. SignNow is a safe and easy-to-use eSignature solution, and the top-rated eSignature app in the app store. Diane introduced SignNow to Barracuda to help streamline contracts and the like. Soon after, it became evident SignNow was a great complement to our storage portfolio, and we completed the acquisition of the company in 2013.
Diane received her award on September 15. Be sure to congratulate her if you see her around!
The Barracuda team hopped in the bus and headed to the award dinner to share in the celebration.
