Keith is personable, successful, driven, experienced and fun!
Jeff Dennis
They're my friends  •  Entrepreneur in Residence, Fasken Martineau DuMoulin. I work with the CEOs of startups and fast growth tech companies.
I've know Keith for more years that I care to admit. We met when we were both on the Board of the Young Entrepreneurs Organization (now EO). ... Keith was that president at the time and was the visionary leader driving the growth of EO at the time. As such, he very experienced with the entrepreneurial community. On top of that he has been a successful entrepreneur for over 25 years.
Joe Saumweber
We worked together  •  Co-Founder & CEO, RevUnit. Previously Director, Technology Activation, Rockfish Interactive.
Keith has an incredible wealth of knowledge coming from his many years of experience in startups and running his own successful company for ... 30 years. He serves on our advisory board and is always extremely giving of his time and mental energy. He speaks from experience and provides counsel based on a sound understanding of what it takes to be successful. Keith is also the consummate networker with connections all over. People love him for his energy and the value he consistently brings to the table. As an advisor to our company he's been incredibly gracious with his rolodex, always introducing us to those for whom we can make a difference.
