Networking Leads: 5/12/2006

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 remain active for some time after the original posting!

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!

If you are an Oracle database guru with experience in some form of business intelligence (BI) (e.g. business objects, Cognos, Microstrategy, etc.), and you are looking for a new challenge, let me know! Junior level position paying $85K. I am happy to forward you along if you are interested.

Are you an AJAX stud? Do you stay awake at night counting XMLHttpRequest objects jumping over little fences in your mind? Would you love to work for a fantastic digital media company in Norcross? Drop me your resume, and I’d be happy to forward you along to the CTO.

A promising young Atlanta startup focusing on market/business intelligence is seeking investors. Let me know if you’d like an intro.

Andy Monin and the crew at VendorMate have a really compelling solution for providing business “credentialing” services. Want to know if your suppliers or vendors are who they claim they are? You will be amazed at the data they can pull for you. I had a chance to spend some time with them the other day, and they are getting traction. A great new play entering the ATDC. I expect great things from this one …

If you are an Atlanta-based technology company, or if you provide technology-related services, you owe it to yourself to register for TechLINKS Exchange, an up-and-coming B2B marketplace for corporate technology buyers here in Georgia.

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. Happy networking!
