Monserrat as a director of SNB, effective immediately. SNB’s board of directors also appointed Mr. Monserrat to its Strategy and Innovation Committee.


Mr. Monserrat has served as CEO of RES Software, a leading digital workspace technology company since April 2015, after serving as Citrix Systems’ senior vice president of Worldwide Sales & Service from July 2008 to 2015. Mr. Monserrat’s career spans more than 25 years in large enterprises and entrepreneurial ventures within enterprise software, mobility, cloud, networking and business strategy. At Citrix, Monserrat was part of the executive leadership team that grew the company from hundreds of millions to more than $3 billion in revenue by 2014, and was instrumental in crafting the strategy that helped Citrix grow from a single-product company, to a multi-product industry leader. Prior to joining Citrix, Mr. Monserrat was a principal in Innovex Group (acquired by Citrix) and received numerous awards including Microsoft’s Best E-Commerce Solution and Best Small Business Solution Awards. In addition, Mr. Monserrat has served on the board of advisors for Virsto and Whiptail (2010 to 2013), on the national sponsor advisory board of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (2008-2009), and on the board (2009) and the board of advisors (2014-2015) of the Children’s Harbor Society. Mr. Monserrat holds a Masters of Business Administration degree from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the University of Miami.


There are no related party transactions (as defined in Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K) between the Company, SNB and Mr. Monserrat. Mr. Monserrat’s compensation for his service as a director of SNB is in accordance with the Company’s customary director compensation policies.
