Geoff might be the captain of the ship, but he is the antithesis of an autocratic leader
Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
The Colorado Business Magazine has named Connect First CEO Geoff Mina as one of Colorado’s 25 most influential young professionals. The 34 year-old co-founder of Connect First started his company 10 years ago, surviving one of the worst recessions in American history and turning it into a major contender in the contact center software industry.
Mina dropped out of high school and wrote his first lines of code for the Connect First platform during a blizzard in upstate New York. Unlike most CEOs, Mina still actively writes code to best cater to customers’ needs.
“Geoff might be the captain of the ship, but he is the antithesis of an autocratic leader,” colleague Will Hathaway says. “Geoff empowers his employees, and his confidence and trust in them has led to those employees spearheading award-winning ideas.”
The award is given to the 25 young professionals in Colorado who not only demonstrate success in business but also demonstrate excellence in their community. The Connect First Foundation, started by Mina, has raised thousands for various causes, and allows employees to take paid time off to volunteer for causes of their choosing.
