LIVEware 5 united once again. Here we see (from left) Bruce Lehrman, Jeff Quint and Alex Taylor. About 13 years ago, we partnered in a video conference Distance Learning company. We offered executive and managerial education on a range of business-related topics and skills. Fortunately (or perhaps unfortunately) LIVEware 5 has long since been sold and we have each moved on. Here is where we are today....Bruce Lehrman is the CEO of Involta. A secure data service and storage company based out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He has been named one of the top 10 entrepreneurs in the area with company growth of more than 100 percent year-over-year.
Jeff Quint, is the CFO for Involta, but that's a sideline to his new business: Cedar Ridge Vineyards, Winery and Distillery. Business is aging nicely with whites, reds, vodka and soon-to-be-introduced Bourbon.
Alex Taylor, is the only one who remains in education. He works with the Tippie School of Management to help administer Iowa's Executive MBA programs. He is also adjunct faculty for the Tippie College of Business.
The reason we're smiling? Perhaps that after all these years we can look back at LIVEware 5 and be thankful for the experience, thankful we survived, and thankful for our continued friendships.
