In 2004, Stu co-founded a wireless Internet company that manufactured radios that specialized in providing high-capacity, wide-area wireless solutions for large-scale venues. The company became a nationally recognized vendor in 2005 when they were awarded the contract for deploying their service at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, providing hotspot coverage for 100 percent of the building’s 1.1 million square feet of publicly accessible space. Stu filled the Treasurer position for two-years and played an active role as the company’s Vice-President of Business Development.

He is an active father of five, and a leader in his church, counseling men dealing with the daily challenges of life and serving as a Director of a Blended Family Ministry, working within the unique dynamics of step-families.
With such a wide range of interests and an enthusiasm for the future, Stu brings a fresh perspective to the company and a natural leadership style that is both contagious and inspiring. He looks at business problems as opportunities for change and partners with clients to help them maximize their potential.
