david-maples-01This year began with the sad news that our dear colleague and friend, David Maples, passed away on January 2nd, 2015 at his home in Morgan Hill, California. Our thoughts and prayers go out to David’s wife, MariJane, and their three children, David, Jonathan, and Lindsay.

David had been a positive force at Bright Computing since joining us in January 2012 as Senior Vice President World-Wide Sales. He was instrumental in growing our company and our culture. Dave’s relentless optimism, epic work ethic, and fearless leadership was an inspiration to all that worked with him. He was loved and respected by everyone. We were fortunate to work with Dave, and proud to call him our friend. He will be missed very dearly.

On behalf of the whole Bright Computing team, rest in peace, Dave.

Matthijs van Leeuwen
Founder & CEO
