Life Purpose
Launching this company has been a personal mission, it’s my Life Purpose. I had originally planned on launching this model 10 years ago, via the Smartchip but had to abandon my efforts due to family responsibilities. My professional experience lends itself to this endeavor. I spent 25 years in the Sale Design, Implementation and Support of some of the 1st largest Turnkey Banking and Country Level Networks – American Express, Citibank, HSBC, Exxon, At&t, ANZ Bank, Fuji Bank etc. I also designed and put in the 1st National Public (Internet) Networks and managed all the country nets for Latin America, Africa and Asia. It has given me a unique perspective to design and deliver SmartMoni w/MoniPlus, GoMainSt MarketSocial, StreetTalk SocialStream and SmartMoniCenters. They take advantage of the Digital Stream to deliver the next generation of Commerce and Money. It’s a gift, it comes easy, it’s what Ive done all my life and I’m putting it to work with SmartMoni. I had planned to launch this company myself, then bring in additional partners as we do the US National roll out. I like partners, in Japan – I had 23 Corporations as partners in its national network, they sat on our Board. However, unexpected family events have left me no choice but to seek outside funding for its launch. The advent of the ICO came and who better to help launch the Money Designed for People. Your assistance is very timely, quite appropriate and will be a cornerstone in the future operations and growth of SmartMoni. Its design has surpassed even my expectations, it is comprehensive and powerful while at the same time simple elegant and delivering new services that are both evolutionary and revolutionary

We increase the value of every transaction and help build stronger relationships and communities.  Our Partners are those who use money the most and are best able to service it. We Put the i in Moni and Give You More. Everywon Wins!

Private Network Sales - W. Region
Company Name - NCR Corporation
 
NCR hired me to close Big Business. I closed the following Turnkey Corporate Global Networks: Citibank, American Express, AT&T, California State University System, NME Hospitals, Stanford University (Best Asia Library in the World), Ticketmaster, Quotron and others. Private Network Sales for Western USA.

I would also like to add, typically, at time of Sale – 20-30% of the technology for a proposed network did not exist. I would design it, spec it – talk to our engineers and determine if we could build it. Then – determine when we could deliver it and how much it would cost. I would also actively coordinate with the engineers through development and testing phase. If they were working evenings, weekends – I would drop by with pizza - collaborate and discuss progress etc. We were in this together, it was not something delegated to be delivered on a specified date. Collaboration & engagement with your team your customer and corporate mgm't ensures success

As a result, I delivered all the networks: on time - on budget – every time - Into a Production Environment. Whether it was a Country Network or Global Network for a Fortune 1000 Company or Bank - 100 countries are more.  They all succeeded.  
 
Positions Held:
I started as an Account Executive, Private Net Sales – W. Region, Country Manager Japan, Director of Pacific Rim. The companies were McDonnel Douglas-Tymnet & NCR. At the time, MDC Tymnet operated out of Silicon Valley and was the World’s Largest Network Company for 25 Years. It later became part of McDonnel Douglas, then MCI and became their Internet backbone. In addition, I have also founded 3 companies, all of which developed their own systems and were successful. So, I do have some entrepreneur experience as well. The reason I bring this up is that I feel this experience has led to SmartMoni’s design and implementation. I trust it will assist in leading to its ultimate success for everywon.
