As many of you know, Gordon Rogers has taken over as the Director/President of the Atlanta Technology Angels, a position I held from 2002-2009. Gordon “officially” started in this position the week of September 7 and has hit the ground running. He has since been to a whirlwind of meetings, lunches, coffees, screenings, coaching sessions, mentoring sessions, etc over the last three weeks and is headed off to Greensboro, North Carolina this Wednesday for the SE Angel Capital Association meeting which will be held September 30 through October 1. This is exactly why the ATA Board of Directors picked Gordon. He exemplifies what ATA has been doing for 10 years–He has jumped in head first, can’t get enough of what ATL has to offer and wants to give back to the community both monetarily and from operational and startup experience.
Gordon has been a member of ATA since 2007 (Gordon is not a founding ATA member as was erroneously noted in a community Angel Lounge email this week) and has an entrepreneurial background which should resonate thoroughly within the Atlanta community. Gordon has invested initially in Elf Island/Good Egg and has been a tireless supporter of both the company and their CEO, Craig Kronenberger. I have no doubt that many other companies and entrepreneurs will receive support from Gordon for years to come.
Please take the opportunity both to welcome Gordon and to offer your support.
