Networking Leads: 4/07/2006

Welcome to this week’s batch of metro Atlanta business networking leads! Here you’ll find all manners of things networking related – job leads, appointments, news, interesting Georgia-based solutions, and more. Remember, you can contribute to this list each week by contacting me!

And of course, the proverbial ground rules: For certain leads, I must be careful not to disclose too much information – I want to be respectful of the confidentiality and trust I have established with people. In those instances, I realize that I may need to act as a conduit for interested parties, in order to protect the anonymity of certain of these leads. However, I will aspire to provide as much information as possible here in the text, so that you can contact each other directly (I really *don’t* want to get into the habit of playing middleman, other than passing along contact information as needed).

If you have something that you would feel to be of merit for this new section of the Pothole, by all means, let me know (spammers and open solicitors need not apply). Remember that the idea here is to provide visibility into “hidden” opportunities or news that is not widely known already – so don’t send press releases! And don’t forget to browse some of the past networking leads – many of them are still active!

First and foremost, a reminder that yours truly is seeking a new opportunity. While I am always open to new ideas, I am currently focusing my search for a CIO/CTO/Tech VP opportunity within either a well-capitalized startup or a mid-size firm. I invite you to visit my online bio and if you have any leads, I would welcome an intro!

An outfit here in Atlanta has created a patented process by which VOIP E911 calls can be delivered to the correct municipality effectly. They are seeking to sell the process and patent outright, and consult on the implementation. Perhaps some of you soon-to-be ex-Bellsouthers should get together, buy this patent, and launch a new company! If you are interested in an intro, let me know …

A 600 person, venture-backed healthcare revenue recovery management company, providing eligibility and billing services to over 170 regional and super-regional hospitals across the U.S. is hiring a Corporate Controller. The Controller position will report to the CFO and manage a small staff of 5 folks. The targeted compensation range is $100-$120k, plus bonus oppty of 15%, plus stock options (not material) and customary/standard benefits (health, 401(k), vacation/holidays, etc.). Want an intro? Let me know!

Have a great idea for a new venture, but need help on your business plan? Looking to raise capital between $250K to $5M? Do yourself a favor and call my pal Greg Albright at Galt Capital. Greg is new to Atlanta, but has a number of capital connections in place and is ready to give you aspiring entrepreneurs a hand! 770-677-9788.

A large financial services firm here in Atlanta is hiring a VP of Software Development – diversity candidates welcome. Let me know if you’d like an intro.

The Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Procuri has allegedly just departed … perhaps they are in need a new one? Hint, hint, cough cough.

Do you have a jacked-up mortgage and need to get your house in order? You need to call Herman Winston at Global Mortgage Group. 678-993-2400.

I met a great fellow by the name of Bob Barnes. Bob operates an outfit called EventsXL. They provide assistance and support for meetings, executive retreats, major events, destination management, and onsite staffing. Need to get that special client a good seat at the Super Bowl? Want to make sure your top-performers don’t miss out on a nice trip to the Masters next year? Go check ’em out at

Finally, as a reminder, if your Atlanta-based firm is in need of executive talent, let me know. I routinely am in contact with many talented executives (C-level, VPs, Directors) that are in transition and are anxious to dig into new and exciting opportunities. I am always happy to send referrals your way.

If you are interested in any of the above leads, feel free to contact the party directly. In the case of anonymous leads, by all means contact me for more information.Cheers, and happy networking!
