...the importance of making connections in the business community.
Dulles, VA (PRWEB) December 23, 2014
Chris Craig, Unanet’s President and Chief Operating Officer, has graduated from the invite-only networking group, MindShare. The purpose of the alumni group is to provide an opportunity for CEOs to network, attend speaking engagements, and collaborate to strengthen professional relationships and grow their organizations. Over 700 CEOs of small and growing technology organizations are a part of MindShare. Most join when their organizations are under 10 million and many of them have greatly exceeded that number including Eloqua (acquired by Oracle), LivingSocial, Cvent, Vocus, Torrent Networking Technologies (acquired by Ericsson) and webMethods.
Chris Craig became President of Unanet in 2012. His mother, Fran Craig, founded Unanet in 1998 and graduated MindShare in 1999. Chris explains "Fran has been a role model and has taught me the importance of making connections in the business community.”
