President and CEO
As Exago BI’s Co-Founder and /CEO, Mike Brody has led the company through a decade of continual growth to its position as a self-funded and profitable player in the Business Intelligence software market.
Prior to Exago, Mike pioneered the development of the industry's first equity compensation application as CEO of CMS/Transcentive. CMS received a VC investment as well as investments by Merrill Lynch and Paine Weber. It was eventually purchased by Computershare.
His first entrepreneurial endeavor was as co-founder and COO of Stockholder Systems, Inc., an application software company focused on shareholder administration which was eventually taken public.
Executive Vice President and Chief Architect
From 1985 through 2000, he was lead developer for CMS (Corporate Management Solutions) and later VP of Development when CMS became known as Transcentive. After that he spent several years consulting for Citigroup and Computershare. During these years, primarily based on client frustrations with 'off the shelf' report writers, Stew recognized a need for better end-user reporting than was available. Armed with this knowledge, he created several sophisticated, but easy to use, report writers to work with these companies' applications. The culmination of his years of experience resulted in the creation of eWebReports (now called Exago).
Stew attended City College of NY and Western Connecticut State University. His other interests include music, photography, and a love of discovering how things work.

Since 1985, Suzanne has developed and managed marketing for both consumer and business products across a wide variety of industries.
