Steven Hsu is the founder of NIRIX. In 2001, Steven started NIRIX in the true HP sense – as a “one man shop”, out of the basement of his home. Since 2001, with his personal business philosophy acting as his driving force, Steven has worked diligently over the decade in turning his vision into reality by recruiting talented people, developing new innovative product offerings, and delivering top-notch customer service.
Steven is responsible and overlooks the overall execution of the company strategy and growth. Since 2001, Steven has quickly and successfully transformed NIRIX twice over the decade. In 2004, NIRIX made the strategic decision to tranform its business revenue model from non-predictable revenue stream to subscription based model. By 2009, with the business transformation complete, Steven lead the charge and developed a forward looking five year strategic and operational action plan to further transform our product offering and corporate identity to aggressively engage and capitalize the “Cloud Computing” revolution in is now upon us. Today, NIRIX has five advanced cloud services designed to meet the requirements of the highly-regulated industries.
