It is with great pleasure and excitement that I welcome aboard, to the LE team, Mike Rex as Director of Operations. Mike will be charged with all aspects of business operations and has a proven track record in leadership and in helping companies grow and expand to the highest levels. Mike joins LE from Flypaper Studio, where he was responsible for direct sales as well as developing and managing reseller and distribution accounts. One of those accounts happened to be LE.
Mike has spent his career in technology, spending the first ten years after graduation as an electronic design engineer, programmer, and project manager developing computerized special test systems while at Hughes Aircraft Company and Motorola. He then spent over 18 years with Hewlett Packard in systems engineering, applications engineering management at the district and area level, and direct sales. Mike left HP to develop an HP value-added reseller business specializing in highly-available Unix systems, HP Openview software, and Cisco networking. After the business was sold to a large national telecommunications sales and integration company, Mike remained with the company, and served as the Vice President and General Manager for a division of the company covering Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas. Mike graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Arizona with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and also graduated with a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from U.C.L.A. Mike is married to Judy Rex, and has three children and two grandchildren.
We are all excited here at LE for the new addition of Mike Rex, and look forward to great things to come!
