Hiring an experienced CEO

can take a business to the next level

C-Suite executives come with many titles: CEO, CFO, CTO, COO. Any of these individuals can found a company but sometimes the founder isn't the right choice to lead the start-up as it begins to grow.

On Wednesday, January 27, e2e Wyoming welcomes Steve Witt, CEO of OptiEnz Sensors to share his story.

Steve was hired as CEO of OptiEnz in 2013 after the company's founder, Dr. Ken Reardon, determined that his focus should be on technology and technical strategy.
Dr. Reardon said, "Growing and running a successful high-tech business requires significant leadership skills. Steve had these skills as well as the technology background to understand and be the interface with customers. He was a natural choice for CEO."
