"We actively recruited Dr. Heidt because he has the background, expertise, practical savvy, attitude and energy to lead the charge in building the equivalent of a 'Seal Team Six' that will create and deliver the value promised to our customers and shareholders," said Ramon Martinez, Company President, and a retired U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel.  Colonel Martinez added, "As one of the nation's premier experts in developing superior sales systems, mass marketing media programs, and recruiting, training and leading top-sales closing teams, Dr. Heidt brings to the Company over 35 years of hands-on, front line, technical, operational, and artistic core competency.  Dr. Heidt is a nationally-recognized thought leader in designing innovative, resilient sales and marketing methods that have historically resulted in generating hundreds of thousands of new customers as well as hundreds of millions of cash-flow profits for the major industry iconic clients he has served with distinction."

"I am excited and honored to join with a company that is so uniquely positioned in the right direction and primed to move to the next level of success," said Dr. Heidt.  "As a media pioneer, award-winning producer, writer and director, I am confident that I can assist the Company to bridge the gap between the "old school," one-to-one sales and marketing techniques and the rapidly developing modern-day platforms and technologies, which effectively employ the web, mobile, cloud, video, and social medias.  I am particularly excited to work with President Martinez and CEO Marcus, who truly understand what it takes to implement the key systems necessary to enable the Company to win in today's high-tech, ultra-competitive marketing and sales environment.  I share the Company's belief that developing and strengthening the Company's brand, infrastructure, abilities to acquire and retain customer loyalty, and enhancing customer experience is critical in meeting the Company's objective of delivering value and success to its customers and shareholders."
