Gary Held joins MobileIQ board

Comments Comments Off by MobileIQ on August 8, 2010

Gary Held recently joined the MobileIQ board. His lengthy resume of working with early stage companies and local investors will be invaluable to the company. Gary is currently the Chairman of First Look Partners, an early stage investment fund.

For over 30 years, Gary has been involved in almost every aspect of starting, building, growing and selling businesses. Following ten excruciating years of corporate law practice in his own law firm, Gary became President of Connecting Point of America on the day of its Chapter 11 filing. Over the next four years, the company bootstrapped its revenues from $0 to over $250M, exited Chapter 11, paid off all creditors and was eventually sold for over $50M.

Gary later became President of Northgate Computers, a small start-up hardware manufacturer. During the next three years, Northgate grew to over $200M in revenues, went from 11 employees to 968, was listed as # 57 and #11 on the Inc. 500, went public, and was eventually sold.

Gary is also the former President of CTEK, a 501c3 non-profit organization assisting innovative entrepreneurs to create profitable and sustainable businesses through access to early and seed stage capital, a network of venture centers and experienced business advisors, and assisting in the commercialization of innovative technologies.

We’re excited to hear Gary’s ideas for growing the company.
