CEO Jacob Hsu in Authority Magazine

By Adam Curtis

Catalyte CEO Jacob Hsu has seen, heard and done many things in his career as a technology executive and entrepreneur.

He spoke with Authority Magazine about some of his biggest accomplishments, his embarrassing miscues, advice for other executives and why a cup of coffee made him realize that Catalyte was different from any other company he’d worked with before.

Below is an except from the interview, and you can read the full article here.

On my very first day at Catalyte, the very first time I’d stepped foot into the office as CEO, a developer got up out of their chair, came over and introduced themselves. And, on top of that, offered to get me a cup of coffee.

This might not seem like a big deal, but to me it was something I’d never experienced in over 20 years in Silicon Valley and in the tech industry. It was my introduction to the Catalyte culture and the different ways in which our developers interact with people, solve problems and aren’t afraid to put themselves out there personally and professionally.
