A tech CEO with 5 startups on his resume explains why he doesn't have a LinkedIn profile
That was in 1994.
Today, McConnon is 71 years old and working on his fifth tech startup - and he doesn't even have a LinkedIn profile.
"What's LinkedIn?" he joked when we asked him why he didn't have an account on the social networking site. "Actually, I'm a fairly private person. No Twitter or Facebook either. I really don't like the limelight."
Instead, he says, "I prefer to network the old fashioned way - in person and via phone. I'll talk to or meet with 20 people on any given day."
McConnon is currently the CEO of BitSight, which assesses the security posture of a company from the outside and assigns it a numeric score, known as a Security Rating, which is similar to a credit rating.
He has no plans of retiring - or joining any social media websites - any time soon.
