Today we announced that three new proven entrepreneurial executives have joined Shujinko.
Jason Kelleghan has joined Shujinko as our first VP of Sales, Rick Harwood as our first VP of
Engineering, and Brett Goodwin as our first VP of Marketing.

Matt and I are very excited to have Jason, Rick, and Brett join us at Shujinko – as we climb our
way up the mountain together as one great company and team.
