He is excited to bring his decades of operating experience derived from leading brands across multiple industries, numerous commercial models, and various levels of scale to the Eclipse portfolio of companies.
Prior to Eclipse, Marc spent five years at Apple running Worldwide Sales Finance where he was responsible for managing and funding the growth of Apple’s global sales channels, which grew over $100B during his tenure. Following Apple, Marc was an early investor in Anaplan and served as CFO. Most recently, he was the President and COO of Nextiva, a leading cloud communications company. During his four years at the company, Marc grew revenue by over 50% and helped secure the company's first external financing, raising $200M and valuing the business at $2.7B.

Most recently, the team has spun out of Mayo forming HeartWorks with a focus on curing CHD and now, is leading the world in regenerative medicine with its recent FDA approval.
