A highly accomplished executive with a distinguished record of leading global technology companies, Reid brings over 25 years of public and private-company management, business development and strategic marketing experience to his role on the Board of Directors. During his tenure at NovAtel, a Nasdaq-listed wireless location and navigation technology company, Reid successfully completed the company's initial public offering, resulting in improved working capital and enhanced shareholder value, in addition to guiding the overall technology development, sales strategy and growth for the organization.
Currently the Executive Vice President and General Manager at Richer Systems Group, the leading North American vendor and developer of ERP and asset management & maintenance software solutions to the fleet management industry, Reid also served as Vice President of Strategic Marketing for Leica Geosystems, driving strategic growth for the world's leading supplier of comprehensive products and solutions for the capture, modeling and visualization of spatial data.
Bill Walton, president and CEO of GiveMePower, stated, "We are very pleased to add Doug to our board. As we bring our products to market, our Company and shareholders will benefit from directors who not only have developed products, but have also proven experience driving sales and managing growth. Doug was previously on our advisory council and brought considerable value to the management team. We are excited about elevating his involvement with the Company."
Reid replaces Tim Nye, who has announced his resignation from the board to devote his full energy to his company, Geosign Corporation. "We wish Tim continued great success and appreciate his offer to stay on as an advisor to the Company," said Walton.
Finally, the Company announced that Wilfried Grabert has stepped down from his director position to pursue other interests.
"Wilfried has been instrumental in many ways to the development of our revolutionary products. While he no longer serves on our board, he remains tremendously aligned and supportive of GiveMePower as one of our largest single shareholders. I look forward to him continuing to provide technology expertise and business acumen to the Company."
