CHICAGO, Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
Recordless Digital Communications Company Announces New Leadership and Direction
Vaporstream Inc., is a Recordless Transitory Communication Service (RTCS) provider that offers private and secure messaging channels for business communications. The company recently appointed Jason R. Howe as the new president and chief executive officer and Kenneth Woods as chief operating officer. With extensive experience in the technology field and emerging markets, both Howe and Woods bring more than 50 years of collective experience to the Vaporstream team.
With new leadership and new direction, the company recently opened offices in the Willis Tower in Chicago -- one of the most secure buildings in the world. For a firm specializing in data security, this is no coincidence.
As CEO of Vaporstream, Howe is responsible for driving the company's growth and profitability by executing its mission to deliver solutions that provide organizations a universal recordless platform for safe digital communications. Prior to Vaporstream, Howe successfully led five early stage high-technology companies to profitability on four continents. Most recently, Howe was the CEO of Awarepoint Corporation, the market leader in providing intelligent workflow automation solutions to acute care facilities. Howe was successful in taking the company from less than $3 million to more than $87 million in market valuation.
"I am honored to lead Vaporstream through its next phase of growth, working closely with its highly talented board of directors, founders and team," said Howe. "Vaporstream is the only truly recordless digital communications system in the world. Our disruptive technology is not only gaining significant traction in its current target market, but its ancillary market potential is virtually limitless. Our patented, breakthrough technology offers a responsible communication channel for an executive that helps protect a company's intellectual property, reputation and bottom line. Vaporstream makes it safe to hit send again."
As COO, Woods is responsible for directing Vaporstream's operations, including product engineering, worldwide sales, channel management, client relationships and day-to-day business. Woods is an accomplished executive with more than 25 years of experience building and managing enterprise software sales and operations for organizations. He has a long track record of successfully marketing new technologies in emerging markets.
"Having a secure and confidential communication solution is vital in a digital world which is fraught with danger. With an innovative solution that protects the transfer of private and sensitive information, Vaporstream is pioneering a new model for electronic messaging and positioning itself for growth in the sector," said Woods. "I'm looking forward to the future. We've got a great team, and I'm excited to see what we can do."
Howe graduated summa cum laude from the University of Colorado with a dual Bachelor of Science in marketing and operational management, and a minor in molecular and cellular biology, and holds an Executive Master of Business Administration degree from the Marshall School of Business in entrepreneurship and executive management. Howe is an acclaimed thought leader in early stage company leadership and solution selling. He was named one of the "Top CEO's Under 40," by the San Diego Tribune and one of the "Most Influential In Healthcare," by Modern Healthcare Magazine.
