Warnock is president and CEO of Gazzang Inc., an Austin-based company that develops cloud security software. He was previously the president and CEO of Phurnace Software Inc., an Austin company bought by Houston-based BMC Software Inc. in 2010. Affinegy, founded at the Austin Technology Incubator in 2003, develops software designed to enable users to link Web-based devices with televisions. It sells its software through Internet service providers such as Time Warner Cable Inc. (NYSE: TWC) and Cablevision Systems Corp. (NYSE: CVC). Subscribers install the software to connect their personal computers to set boxes to synch and share content. The company employed 25 workers in 2011, but CEO Melissa Simpler recently declined to say how many workers the company currently employs. In November, Affinegy completed a $300,000 financing from a lone investor. At the time, Simpler also declined to identify the investor or provide any details about the funding. But a regulatory filing at the time listed John Hime , an angel investor for Hime & Co. LLC, as one of its directors. The Austin-based firm includes Affinegy among its portfolio of companies in which it is currently invested. Hime, previously the vice president of marketing for Austin-based Tivoli Systems Inc., has been mentoring and investing in technology companies since 1994. Most of them are based in Austin.
