Hosted by former NetApp president and vice chairman Tom Mendoza, a 1973 Notre Dame graduate, the Tom Mendoza Presents series features interviews with top business executives about their journey to success, what they learned along the way in forging great companies and their advice to students and professionals as they build their careers. During his 25-year tenure with NetApp, Mendoza rose to the position of vice chairman and was considered instrumental in the development of the company’s corporate culture and its global recognition as one of Forbes’ “Great Places to Work.” He currently serves as the director of UiPath, Varonis and Vast Data.
