Team

Our founding board of directors has more than 100 years of technology and business acumen. Our board has started several companies, led sales and marketing teams, run P&L for large businesses, driven corporate acquisitions, been acquired, created new businesses within existing companies, filed patents, and identified promising innovation for investment. We formed Live Learn Innovate Foundation (LLIF) because we see deficiencies in personal data collection, data analytics, wellness, data privacy, and data governance. We believe that LLIF will be transformational to people, communities, and businesses.

Jim French

Founder and Chairman of the Board

I am a lifelong observer, learner, builder, teacher, investor, partner, and philosopher pursuing impactful ways to help. As a Distinguished System Engineer at Cisco, I repeatedly helped to create and incubate new products and solutions to fill gaps in technology and operations with the goal of helping customer lower, costs, increase agility, reduce risk, and improve experience. LLIF is a manifestation of that same pursuit for people and businesses.

I am a passionate global technology leader with a track record of success in building successful teams. With a combination of experience as an in-house Fortune 10 technology leader, a large team leader and individual contributor for leading tech providers (both technical and sales teams), and as an entrepreneur, I bring unique perspectives to the technology landscape.

Dave Frampton

Executive Director

I am an Entrepreneur & Operator with a passion around productizing innovation, ramping businesses, and developing teams. In roles from Founder/CEO of a security start-up to GM of both mid and large size business units, I have broad exposure to both product and GTM across security, networking, cloud/SaaS, and data analytics. I joined Sumo Logic as a part of the acquisition of my security start-up, where my role is helping lead the development and ramp of a next generation Cloud SIEM to address new threat surfaces from cloud and digital transformation transitions.  Unlocking high impact continuous insights in diverse data is a big focus of our work at Sumo, and I view LLIF as a great opportunity to leverage lessons from this journey for individual life enrichment.
