Michael Simon has served as LogMeIn's Chairman and CEO since its founding, and has grown the company from a single access product line used by thousands of users to a leading provider of essential cloud services used daily by millions people across the globe. After co-founding the company with Marton Anka in 2003, Simon pioneered the company’s signature freemium business model in 2004, and took LogMeIn public in 2009 – the first of two VC-backed IPOs in Massachusetts and one of eight nationally during the year.
In addition to leading LogMeIn’s day-to-day operations and long-term product and market strategy, Simon serves on the board of HubSpot, as well as the Graduate Studies Advisory Council at Notre Dame.
Prior to LogMeIn, Simon founded Uproar Inc., a publicly-traded provider of online game shows and interactive games, acquired by Vivendi Universal Games, Inc. in March 2001. He holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, an M.B.A. from Washington University St. Louis, and a soft spot for athletic teams that sport an Irish motif.
