Our Team

Mark Lanteigne is the founder and chief technical strategist for Third I/O.  Previously, he was co-founder and Director of Testing for Medusa Labs. Mark guided Medusa’s world renowned testing program from its conception and later through a successful acquisition by Finisar Corporation.   In 2004, Mark decided to venture back to his entrepreneurial roots and started Third I/O to explore revolutionary ideas in high speed bandwidth and supercomputing.

Prior to joining Medusa, Mark worked at Dell Computer where he quickly rose to the level of Lead Senior Analyst in the Enterprise Server Development Lab.   He made major contributions to Dell's entry into enterprise server development by serving as product test leader for the early  PowerEdge servers.  Mark currently has 9 US patents pending.

David Schinke is Third I/O’s resident code guru.   David has the well deserved reputation of being able to take any creative thought and create code that will quickly prove or disprove the merits of the idea.

David and Mark first met at Medusa, where David was one of the early and key employees.   At Medusa, David was instrumental in a number of test tool and advanced software projects, as well as being the in-house Unix/Linux guru and instructor in Infiniband.
