So this is my first blog post as the Chief Products and Innovation Officer of Uniserve Communications Corp. I suppose I’ve been putting it off for too long, as I search for just the right topic to start off with. I hope you can forgive me :-). As an aside, before I launch into it, just a quick note as to why I accepted this position, which on the face of it probably seems like an odd choice, given my background and personality. Three reasons:
- Will Spratt, the CEO. This is a man who knows how to do deals, structure businesses, and make money. Even more importantly, he is a person of the highest integrity.
- $25M in revenue, growing quarter over quarter for years now, and generating profit, with over 110,000 customers coast to coast.
- The competition is fat and slow, and complacent. When was the last time your telco/ISP did something innovative for you? Press 1 for never, press 2 for a long time ago, and press pound to get put on hold with torturous easy listening versions of songs you didn’t like even in the original version.
So there you have it. A great opportunity to build something very interesting on a great platform. Onward!
