Alternaturals announces major changes in executive management starting with a new CEO

GRANDVILLE, Mich., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Alternaturals, Inc., Symbol (OTCPink: ANAS) today announced that it has recruited Matthew Briggs as it's new Chief Executive Officer in an attempt to bring in high quality talent, and adopt a more aggressive growth strategy for the company, while the former CEO, Emmanuel Gyamfi, has stepped down to focus on several other projects. The appointment of the new CEO comes at a critical time when the company is on the verge of several product launches and a push to solidify many distribution deals.

"Although my heart is in this project, Mr. Briggs, is just a better choice for the company in this phase of its growth. His background is more entrepreneurial in nature and he will be able to execute the plan much quicker because he is accustomed to creating unexpected progress with little resources. There is no doubt that he is going to usher in a period of tremendous momentum, and that is exactly what the company needs," said former CEO, Emmanuel Gyamfi."

Mr. Briggs, has experience in Sales & Marketing, Advertising, the Public Markets, Raising Private Capital, Business Strategy and Market Penetration. He approaches early stage development from a mergers & acquisitions angle acknowledging that utilizing your equity to acquire your competitors, or even your partners is always easier than growing organically and losing valuable time in a time critical marketplace. His vision for Alternaturals is nothing short of creating a global empire. He acknowledges that there are some instances when organic growth is the only way, and in those cases smart strategy is the key.

"I am extremely excited to be offered the amazing opportunity to utilize my skills and experience to get this project headed in the right direction. Much like steering a ship, a small miscalculation at this stage could send you miles off course down the road, and we can not, and will not let that happen", explained Briggs, who added, "I am going to give this company everything I have, and hopefully it begins to show right away."

The company wants to assure investors that there are no major changes in share structure planned for the near future, and efforts to decrease the number shares outstanding, will likely target the purchasing of restricted, or former insider shares, at least for the short term. The focus will be almost exclusively on building the business for the next 6-12 months, and management believes if it succeeds, the share value will follow.  Although Mr. Briggs does vow to offer as much transparency as possible, he asks shareholders to be respectful, and avoid unnecessary emails, phone calls, or visits that serve only to disrupt business and slow progress. Management cannot discuss anything with individual shareholders that is not already public information, and official company news and disclosures will be the place such information will be available.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
