Bill McKiernan is an online commerce pioneer. He founded CyberSource in 1994. It quickly became one of the world's first organizations to build a website equipped with the now-familiar "buy" button - but that was hardly the company's only innovation. CyberSource originated the concept of the Internet commerce suite, which allows companies to outsource eCommerce transaction services on an as-needed basis, obviating their need to build and maintain costly and complex commerce infrastructures.
Prior to founding CyberSource, Mr. McKiernan was president and COO of McAfee Associates, now Network Associates. He held this position during the company's initial public offering. Before joining McAfee, Mr. McKiernan was vice president of Princeton Venture Research, Inc., and held management positions at ROLM/IBM. Mr. McKiernan holds a B.S. from Boston College and an M.B.A. from the Harvard Business School. He is on the board of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and is West Coast Chairman of the Boston College Technology Council.
