Rick Smith the man that doesn’t sleep

Man the more research I do this man more tired I get just thinking of all the amazing things this man has done. First of all he has gone to Rochester school for his mba and his associates’ degree in technology. He also has gone to buffalo New York to get a bachelor’s degree in engineering, masters in engineering from state university of New York. From 1972 to 1998 Rick Smith held roles of controller and chief information officer with global crossing North America inc. Then from 1998-2000 he works at Eschelon telecom INC. as the chief financial officer. From 2000-2003 he was the company president than promoted to CEO in that time frame he increased the company’s revenue from 30 million dollars to 350 million dollars. Which in a matter of 3 years I couldn’t even imagine that much Money in a company in that short of a time. Summer of 2005 Rick smith led the company to a successful Ipo. He stayed with the company until 2007.

Than in 2008 he was hired into Securus technology as a president and CEO, and then became companies chairman in January 2009. So many articles so that this company is so happy to have hired him and that if this company succeeds it’s going to be because of him being in charge.

I’m sorry I’m getting ahead of myself Securus is a company that was in Dallas, Texas. The company provides a wide range of services like monitoring, biometric analysis, incident management, and emergency response communications. This company services more than 1 million inmates and 2600 corrections. The leadership under Rick Smith Securus performs 600 percent better than their competitor Global Tel Link. If the man can’t be any better of a leader from 2013-2016 the company invested in over 600 million dollars with patients, technologies and acquisitions. I thought this man couldn’t do any better than his company before Securus. This man is still young and this man can still do so much I couldn’t even imagine what he could do next. Maybe go back to school for more degrees. Maybe make the company more money than you could even count. Maybe he could even branch off and make his own company and be a billionaire. For this man life is endless. Check this article at Bloomberg.com to know more about Rick Smith.

Jason Hope Goes All In On The Internet Of Things

Jason Hope is a tech entrepreneur as well as an author who has written extensively about the Internet of Things. He has said that he thinks this will be far and away the largest advancement that the world of technology has yet experienced.

The Internet of Things, in a nutshell, allows all of one’s various devices to talk to one another without the need for human intervention. This will include things like technology gadgets, phones, appliances, cars, streetlights, and even homes and businesses.

The goal of the Internet of Things is to increase efficiency, decrease waste, and help save human lives. Jason Hope has written that investing in the Internet of Things will be one of the largest that major corporations have ever been involved in. He has also said that at first it will be mainly for convenience at first but it will soon thereafter become necessary. He thinks there is going to be massive competition among technology companies to provide users with the most useful apps to use to engage with in their everyday lives.

Jason Hope grew up in Arizona and graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in finance. He also earned an MBA from the Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. He founded Jason Hope Consulting Business in order to provide his expertise in technology to other companies.

Hope is also heavily involved in philanthropy. One of the nonprofits he has taken particular interest and support in is the SENS Foundation. The SENS Foundation researches life extension as well as how to create a better quality of life. Instead of researching cures like most institutions, the SENS Foundation seeks to find ways to stop diseases from occurring in the first place.


How Eric Pulier Is Changing the Technology Industry

It takes a lot of work to be a great technologist but how does a technologist know how good he/she is? It is arguably easy for doctors to know if they are good at what they do or not. Does the sick patient live or not? Does the paralyzed man or woman walk or not? Does the broken bone heal or not? But how does a technologist know they are good at what they do? Eric Pulier, for example, is a great technologist whose accomplishment in the industry proves it all.
