Ken Nangle entered the technology field in 1982 after running a range of successful businesses. After several partnerships he founded his own company, The Power Store, and grew from a garage to a 50 person high tech software development and consulting company. Following this venture, he consulted for several companies from a small custom software development company doing marketing to a position as CTO for a 600M electrical contracting company.
From late 2004 until the end of 2008, Ken worked with Chief Executives of dozens of local businesses as a franchisee for The Alternative Board in San Francisco, where he honed his understanding of the needs of local business owners.
For the past several years, Ken has returned to his focus on technology, in particular social marketing, with a renewed level of energy. He is dedicated to helping businesses move their information technology function from the server room to the Internet.
