Chase Tarkenton, Cisco Systems:
"I attended the Tech Series speaker event for MTBC today with a customer. The event was a class act and my customer found it to be extremely insightful. After attending today I can attest that bringing customers to these speaker events will prove beneficial to our Metroplex sales force. It without a doubt strengthens relationships, expands the conversation around Web 2.0, and makes us more of a trusted advisor."
Shaunna Black, Texas Instruments:
"The MTBC has been at the forefront of important initiatives, which have been catalysts for innovation, advanced research and talent development in the region. These initatives are important to Texas Instruments because we benefit from the highly skilled workforce and industry/university partnerships that exist as a result."
Rusty Cone , SVP Operations, NEI:
"The MTBC has provided both the connections to business leaders and business prospects that we could not otherwise have gained, and more importantly allowed me the opportunity to influence the metroplex through the larger megaphone that the MTBC provides. Our work on talent, innovation, advocacy and branding of the region not only directly helps NEI as a employer, but helps Texas and the US to be more competitive in the increasingly global marketplace. My affiliation with the MTBC has given me more strength as a business leader, connected me to inspiring leaders from which to learn from, and provided a giving medium to assure our regions long term success."
Barbara Lancaster, CEO, LTC International:
"As a global company, LTC International is well known in many parts of the world. Our profile in North Texas was rather low - a problem solved by our membership in the MTBC."
Paul Klocek, General Manager, ELCAN Optical Technologies:
"The MTBC is helping to create an outstanding business community. The many well-networked forums and broad member inclusion are driving a very exciting and enriching business environment. Whether an entrepreneur, startup or large corporation, the MTBC is where you want to be."
George Brody, Co-Founder and Vice-Chairman of the Board, GlobeRanger Corporation:
"The Metroplex Technology Business Council is more than just a collection of the largest high-tech corporations in Dallas. The MTBC is a mechanism to bring small, cutting-edge startups face-to-face with global industry leaders;
a network of introductions, interactions, and conversations which stimulate business relationships and personal partnerships; a forum for a series of knowledge-sharing events that communicate ideas, trends, data and
informed insights among CEOs, CFOs, executives and professionals in key business function and targeted technology areas; as well as an umbrella organization fostering the growth of aggressive high-technology companies in the Telecom Corridor area, the Metroplex and North Texas. All of this makes my MTBC membership and participation not only worthwhile, but also valuable personally and professionally."
Pete Bausbacher, President, ProtoLink, Inc.:
"My software development company, ProtoLink, Inc., has reaped tremendous benefits from relationships established at MTBC committee meetings and membership events. In addition, I have personally learned a great deal from the diverse collection of individuals who comprise the MTBC."
Anu Venkitaraman, President, Re/Think Marketing LLC:
"A dynamic member organization is one that not only gives value but also offers multiple avenues for member engagement. MTBC does both. In the past few years, I've had the opportunity to connect with outstanding professionals and companies through events, as well as collaborate with my peers on causes and programs that are very important to me and the community."
Joey Seeber, PResident & CEO, Level 2 Review
Level 2 Review, a Tyler-based electronic document review company for clients in legal disputes, received a call about a major project that would require them to accelerate their expansion plans and open a new office in Richardson in only ten days. Even though AT&T previously occupied the new building, Level 2 Review’s president and CEO, Joey Seeber, couldn’t get them to budge from a minimum of 30 days to connect. Referred by the Richardson Economic Development Partnership, “…Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) said they could get it done on the first phone call.” The closest TWCBC fiber plant was across the street, “…and in a matter of days they tunneled under the street to get fiber to our space so we could open our doors to the Dallas market.” It’s refreshing to hear the story of a business communications provider that goes the extra mile in customer service, especially when that extra mile pays off by tripling the company’s capacity.
