This is another article in Security.World’s Company Grows series. We were fortunate to catch up with Pierre Racz, Founder, President and CEO of Genetec and chatted about how Genetec has grown over the years. Pierre Racz is not your typical growth company CEO in that he is first and foremost an engineer. He has a master of the underlying technologies, however, he has a keen sense of the market, where he and his company, Genetec, fits into the marketplace. Racz also is atypical in that he has been able to stay current on new technologies, grow his company past the pure entrepreneur stage, and now runs an industry leading video management software company.
