Say hello to your new Featured Insider: jerryl!


Insider since February 22, 2009




Status: Lifetime Platinum


About Me: I spent most of my professional career in the aerospace and defense business. I was head of many divisions / locations which caused me to move a few times. Grew up and started in Boston area but went to Bay area, Denver, NYC and a long time in Phoenix. About ten years ago I joined a friend as a senior executive in a public identity management and biometric company in CT which as you can imagine between these jobs caused me to travel a lot and get lifetime in about 12 years. About five years ago I decided to slow down and joined a private equity company in Scottsdale as well as sitting on a few boards. This helped me to reduce my travel and I am thankful to Marriott for lifetime status.

I am married with three children and nine grandchildren which to you mathematicians is geometric progression. I live most of the year in Phoenix but spend the summers on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.


Interests: I also like to have a garden in the summer as I view it as therapeutic. Also enjoy watching sports especially March madness. I have been able for the last ten years to have at least one big trip per year and have seen a lot of Europe leisurely vs a business in and out. I look forward to meeting in person many of the insiders at our annual get together in Houston in September.
