For more than five years the Austin Business Journal's Face 2 Face series has delivered some of the brightest industry leader to Austin's business community for informative and inspiring discussions. Personal stories, tales from the boardroom and opinions on today's ever-changing business environment are tackled in a fireside chat format with ABJ Editor Colin Pope.

The Face 2 Face breakfasts are usually held the second Tuesday of each month at Whole Foods' world-famous headquarters in downtown Austin. The breakfast starts at 8:30 am with a half hour of networking followed by a one-hour Q&A session with our featured guest. This discussion is fueled by questions from the audience, and most often centers on business-to-business topics that both educate and entertain.

Mark McClain is regarded as one of the best CEOs in the Austin area. He is putting to use over 20 years of experience developing and leading innovative technology companies to grow SailPoint Technologies, his latest software venture that is one of the biggest tech employers in Austin. After working for HP and IBM, McClain hit his first home run in the startup world by founding Waveset Technologies in 2000 and then selling it to Sun Microsystems in 2003.
