Board of Directors
Experience, drive and passion.
Ed joined Prophecy as General Manager in 1987, bringing his extensive experience in the IT industry. His passion for reaching company targets helped him grow into his current role as Chairman.
Ed has a passion for seeking out great technology and taking it to the world markets. SNARE’s performance over the last year is a perfect example of what Ed believes is possible – and the new eMite software is poised to show similar growth trends.
Ed has steered Prophecy on a very steady course of profits and dividends over the last 8 years and set the scene for explosive growth with new product offerings brought on board through acquisition. Eager to oversee the tremendous growth period for Prophecy in both revenue and profit, Ed is on the lookout for the next potential acquisition to add to the product mix.
